A 1982 Holden Commodore VH SL/E finished in “Tahitian Blue” has been listed in Sydney for $54,995.
With 121,418km on the clock, the 38-year-old vehicle is accompanied by its original servicing and warranty handbook.
Bought new from Melbourne’s Reg Hunt Holden dealership the year it was built, the vehicle is optioned with cruise control, air conditioning, central locking and a trip computer.
Power is derived from a 4.2-litre V8 engine, and drive is sent to the rear wheels via a three-speed automatic transmission.
Producing 100kW, the zero-100km/h sprint takes about 9.5 seconds.
A spokesperson for the Classic Throttle Shop – from where the vehicle is being sold – told CarAdvice “it's just had an extensive service and the engine was rebuilt some years ago”.
“Today the car is in excellent original condition, is incredibly smooth to drive and becoming very collectable," the spokesperson added.
Similar Commodore VH models in Australia generally sell for between $15,000 and $40,000, however few come to market in such tidy condition.
In 2018, Brock’s Bathurst-winning Commodore from the same year sold at auction for $2.1 million – the highest price ever paid for an Australian made car to date.
