Your car is a Holden Berlina Sedan
From the factory it was equipped with the Turbocharged Nissan 3L RB30ET producing 150kw at the flywheel.
It was produced in 1987 at the Melbourne plant with a serial number of 18225

first time i typed it in i got it all wrong and i thought it was'nt a genuine turbo and i was getting worried coz the guy i bought it off said it was, now i did it correctly i am happy! pays to double check what you do!

The Executive name was an option pack on the SL model that featured two items and they were automatic transmission and power steering. You will not find an executive with either of these two items missing. For those that mentioned Aircon, it was an option even on the Berlina model and only appeared as standard equipment on the Calais model.

Check your mater cylinder to see if it has a 15/16 or a 1 casting. If it has 15/16 then the rear discs will be non factory.
I think the Execs were all Series 2. Not sure though. I have the Genuine holden service manuals and they only state SL, Berline, Calais. No mention of execs.

An easy way to tell if its S2 is if you have black outside door handles. Series 1 has chrome which i much prefer

Executive was available accross the entire VL production run and was first seen on the VK model. As i mentioned before an Executive is only an SL with the power steering and auto trans fitted together as a package.

well mine has black but im thinking of changing them to chrome cos it goes better with the paint job

it has 15/16 on the master cylinder

does that mean that the master cylinder isnt a 1'' bore?

It was produced in 1986 at the Adelaide plant with a serial number of 16787

Does anyone know how to find out what serial calais started at? Or are they just mixed in with all the other serials?
