Your car is a Holden SL/Executive Commodore 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 Adelaide plant with a serial number of 23114

That has definately eased my mind. after having paid $5000 for a VL Exec, if i was to find out that it was an N/A conversion i'd be pretty pissed... I was fairly sure that it was original tho... only thing that played on my mind is that the badges on the boot went in this order Holden, Turbo, Executive.. I thought that it was supposed to be Holden, Executive, Turbo or just Holden, Turbo.

Oh well im a happy boy now.

I think all the models serial numbers are mixed in together.

Hey Ol86VLCT, I see your calais s/n is 16787. My VL Calais Turbo s/n is 16999 and it was built in july 1986.
