    Hi all new to forum, looking for help to make a connection with this decal.
    Original 65k Nov 1980 VC original colour, numbers matching, as delivered, unrestored commodore with strange (local dealer???) decal on front 1/4 panel.
    Any ideas??? decal.jpg

    Does it have the dealer sticker on the back windows or rego plate surrounds?

    No, has a Peter Brock and John Harvey sticker, so that doesnt help much.
    Not to much special about the spec level apart from a few subtle additions including bottom mount spoiler lip (small), decals. Stupid wheels added by last owner though

    Probably dealer, owner or panel beater added I'd say, I don't recall that motif being specific to VC or any Commodore for that matter.

    The stripe down the side is an aftermarket stripe put on at the dealers by a local stripe guy. Probably thought the little motifs added some flair.
     
  8. Don't know about anyone else but the thin stripe along the side makes a huge difference in my opinion, it tends to break up the large plain area and give it a much better slightly refined look without over doing it. My wife's white slab sided F..rd Capri had a fine red stripe along the side like this one and it made the car look completely different and better looking than the rest of the herd.
