Elusive Maloo a performer like no other
Marc Harper found his dream car a little more than three years ago — a 2011 HSV Maloo Black Edition, No.52 of only 100 made.
Mr Harper said it had always been his lifelong goal to own a Maloo.
For six years he searched across Australia to find the perfect Maloo, until one late night he found it on the website Car Sales.
“I rang up the dealership the next morning and the following day the car was all mine,” Mr Harper said. “I had to make mine look different.” This particular Maloo has become one of a kind because it has unique number plates, V8PHOENIX, and a custom panel design.
“All the stickers on the side of the car are my own design,” Mr Harper said. He said he loved to take his Maloo anywhere, even camping.
He has a custom camping set-up in his ute, with a tent fitted to the tray and a fridge.
“I like to drive around and travel to places like Esperance, Perth and even Melbourne,” Mr Harper said.
“It is a very smooth ride for a sports performance vehicle.”
