Yeah the progress is all the unseen stuff at the moment. Straightening and smoothing the body has taken a fair bit of effort. Still a lot to go haha.

As stupid as it sounds, it's worth what someone is willing to pay


There have been a couple of Genuine Manual VLTs in the last few years sold through Trademe for around 5-6k, so it's anyone's guess.
I'm on the lookout for a numbers matching VLT and have an idea what I would pay, depending on condition and options....

Do you know of one?

yeah fair enough, i am looking at moving over in the next year or two (hopefully) and i have a Berlina manual turbo and a calais v8, i would like to take the berlina over to be able to sell it to get me back to Australia 5 years later but would prefer my calais to cruise around in over there... Probably end up selling the berlina 1st, taking the calais and just staying there and fk coming back to Australia lol

Ohhh right, when you said 'current wof' i thought you were referring to a VLT which was already here in NZ


The market is always changing, you'll get alot of tire kickers though

Deffo VL8VK19-224
224 means it's the 224 pack, meaning rear disk, certain tyres and 8VL spec
Which is berlina.

Really? Well that's not right....

VL8VK is SL, VL8VL is Berlina and VL8VX is Calais...ending in 19 is Sedan, 35 is Wagon.


As you mention, 224 (as listed in the Holden parts catalogue) is LW5 (Turbo), MS1 (Auto), JM8 (Rear Discs) and QQS (Tire 205/65/15) - 8VL (Berlina)

Example, I've got Brents Calais Turbo tags here, which are VL8VX19 - 324, X being Calais.


Check the long skinny tag on your firewall, it should start with 8L (Berlina) as opposed to 8K for SL......Brents tag here starts 8X to match the body tag.



Could be a factory misprint?

Yeah the tag starts with 8L
I was told that the pack number overruled anything on the model prefix, unsure how true that is tho.....
Either that or it's a factory misprint, all other numbers and plates line up too.

Woah, yea it's not common for Holden to stamp the tags incorrectly but I have seen it before...Makes your car that little bit rarer

Agreed, but a misprint none the less, I've got the broadcast sheet that the car was built with and its "L" instead of "K" all other letters and numbers match.
