If memory serves correctly, PBR (vic) made them for C5, essentially same as the HSV, and were for 32mm thick rotors - if correct, this might help if you find some locally (and save you time linishing "Corvette" off the casting)

They did make them for HSV but also Toyota along with Ford. The rotor sizes varied but were all 32mm thick as you mentioned but they all had a different mounting cradle to suit the different offsets and rotor diameters. They no longer make this caliper and are very hard to find unfortunately.

The calipers used were similar but not the Ford version. We used a different version caliper and although the body and pad is the same the actual cradle that mounts to the car was different . The offset and mounting points will be different so will not work.

The PBR caliper production stopped many years ago but have literally had whispers yesterday we may have access to a new product very similar so the kits may be resurrected again .
