Vp Senator 5000i


Hi I own a white vp senator 5000i no 24 for 13 years now. While I don't drive it anymore, still enjoy starting it up & cleaning it. The car had a recent respray four years ago, with partial restoration to the interior. The driver seat had new Group A bolster pads, new leather, and dyed to suit. Underneath base of seat had new padding & supports to give it that new feel, passenger seat just re-dyed.

G'day
The Crane 276 cam is a step up from the 268 cam used on the VN SV 5000 model. The 276 is still a mild cam but gives the exhaust a nice loud aggressive note. :spot on:

Occasionally drive it just to keep it in good working order - once every couple of month's - I have a newer HSV now to drive

Yes, I mite change the engine covers back to the original Red colour. At least the OTR I brought hides the radiator shroud, my SV air box got nicked at a auto paint shop. Does any one know what the original engine covers colour name for the Vp senator 5000i is ? - it's sort of a Red maroon colour
