It was produced in 1987 at the Adelaide plant with a serial number of 31520

LB9 Engine - V8, 4.9 Litre PFI is this the engine in the walky

I'll say. Looks very home made. Have you had any problems registering your car with just that tag ?

I wouldn't think it's because it's an NZ car either. Were VL's assembled in NZ or shipped over whole ? Either way you'd think it's still have all the Holden tags. Are there any rivet holes on the firewall where they used to be ?

All I can think of it that perhaps the body was written off at some stage and all the parts fitted to a new shell. Years ago race teams etc. could buy bare shells from Holden under a part number. Not sure if this practice continued through to the VL period though.

Could the Tags have been stolen at some stage and replaced with these "home made type tag"

na its not stolen..dont think its been written off either as theres no signs of repair. i just want to figure out what color it is lol

pretty sure theres some holes for the original build tag..suprisingly enough it does not even have a vin plate(legally required for all vehicles on nz roads).

Sorry to drag up an old thread, but my VL has paint code 1E023-D.

It's an orange Executive, and before you ask, no, it's not 1E028-D (Valencia Orange), it's definitely a 3.

Anyone know anything about this?

Cheers.

EDIT - Apparently it's a Bob Jane T-Marts colour from the late 80s..

Could easily be a mis-stamp. There's heaps of stamping errors on the motors.

Do you mean the Bob Jane T-marts orange colour they use now?

No, it's a very deep orange. The car is actually for sale, it's in the FS section. I had wanted to include a paint code so people didn't think it was a respray, but it can't seem to find much info

Maybe it's an error in the stamping. My grandfather was pretty adamant it was ex Bob Jane though. I've seen one or two cars in the same colour floating around.
