4 grand and up i would say,its a clean shell survivor with some rare sle bits.
But i am biased,i love the VH SLE look.
Does it have two paint codes? If not, its not factory two tone.
AFAIK only SL/E was offered factory in two tone.
Dude you FKN stole that at a grand! Well done mate,plus i sold mint sle lights and extensions 10 years ago for $750 so i think you have made a very good investment. Patience will now be the key,keep it safe and in a few years who knows what it could bring.
... with ya there
my VH Commodore production build data from my GMH days
states that Option Code V6Q (aka Shadowtone paint) is NOT
available on 8VK69 (SL) ,8VL69 (SL/X) sedans nor any '35' style wagons
it is ONLY available with certain 8VX69 (SL/E) interior trim styles
For example V6Q 4006 29Y on 8VX69 is Tahitian over Mercury (Paint )
with INDIGO Velour
Whatever it is it will be worth less if modified from original.
I beg to differ with DerekP, as long as the modification is done tastefully I think you could add value to your vehicle. I don't think there were many 6 cylinder 1st generation highly collectable Commodores ever produced. A mild 253, brake & suspension package would transform the car & open yourself up to a larger selling audience when you choose to sell it, without over capitalising (that's the tricky part)!
