BA coupe?

Saw something interesting today. It was going through the lights and I only managed to get a look at the arse end, but it was what looked like a Blood Orange coupe. I didn't get much of a look, however I'm positive it wasn't a Monaro, it had BA tail lights, positive on that.

It wasn't the BA coupe that was at the motor show, the back was a lot smoother, ala XA-XC coupe, ala the new Monaro.

Anyone else seen anything like it, or should I cut back on the drugs?

If I recall, there was a company just recently doing 50 conversions of the BA sedan to a coupe. I will try and dig up the advertisement I saw in the paper...

Drugs arrrr baaaad okaaay, It could be something from the Hillier brothers in Tenterfield, you never know what can come out of that workshop.
Those people are absolute masters when it comes to modifying cars.

Re: BA coupe?

Just one thing; If they were to produce a coupe, Blood Orange is definatley the colour to paint it IMO

Re: BA coupe?

The problem with those BA coupes (and the Hillier boys told them as much) is that is pretty much just a extended front door, weld up the rear space job. There's no real modifications to the C pillar, etc which you'd find on the Hillier AU Coupes.

The two coupes (well, Hilliers haven't done a BA coupe yet, but they can) are the same price to get done, about $30k, but you get more work from the Hillier conversion.

Re: BA coupe?

I'm pretty sure the c pillar had been changed, though I might be wrong. Still, it looked good in Blood Orange.
