Hi all

I have information here with regards to the first CDT S3 Turbo.

Image

As you can see :shock: they were TFs only. PF50

How ever the S3 Turbo upgrade kits could be purchased from June 1 1982. They were available from Country Holden Dealers for $1980.00 plus fitting. Some people may have put these kits on their S1 or S2 CDT for a power upgrade.

Remember that CDT S1 and S2 s were only available in Flamingo and Firethorn Reds, White and Black TE SL/X Geminis.

There were only a handfull S3 PF50's sold approx 12 of :( .

They failed to sell 500 to be eleigable to compete at Bathurst :(

But the S3 CDT managed a flat 15sec 1/4 mile :P
