Vilas did not use that in 1984. In 1984 he was still using the Slazenger V-24. That was a 1986 frame that Vilas used. It is graphite composite frame with a plastic zytel throat piece.

Is it worth anything if its brand new

in 1986, it was Puma's entry-level adult graphite composite frame, below the Becker Winner and Becker Super. Vilas was sidelined and disgraced by an appearance guarantee scandal, and Becker had usurped his position as the Puma golden boy (Becker won the '85 Wimbledon with a Vilas Winner in his hand; Puma almost immediately renamed the frame for their new star).

That frame is worth having, but it's probably not as valuable as a G. Vilas Winner or Becker Winner or Super.
