Just bought a 93 vpII hsv formula and have been questioned if its the real deal or a replica. Its got the hsv plate under the hood, things like abs, leather trimmed interior, sports suspension and exhaust, and it a v6. Is there any main features that can prove a real from a replica?

Well on series 2 ABS was an option on all models...But it definitely sounds like the real deal. With ABS, leather trimmed interior and the HSV plate...it should be real.

But you can give HSV a ring and have the VIN number and build number checked...

They made 67 VP HSV Formula's. All were a V6 with 15x7" 5 spoke rims. They used the VP Senator grill and were a two tone (calais style) paint job.
Like said to be sure just ring HSV with the VIN.

none hit Any aussie road, all were for NZ only.

Never heard of the HSV formula, seen plenty of Holden Formula's tho, same bodykit as the SS (VN Model)
