hey guys

just wondering on how many of each VP's were built

I know there was 111,770 (justcommodores.com.au) (88GreenVN counts 11,949)

-300 Calais Internationals
-1,594 HSV's
-a rare VP senator (5 year ann) only 15 made

but how many
-SS?
-Calais (and Calais with the optioned live diff)
-Berlina 5L wagons and 5L 5 speeds etc
-200-300 HSV enhanced cars

help build the list and tell me what you know

88GreenVN has helped with his count off, half way throught sorting)
-VP's in my database 107,595 (this is not how many are made - just what he has recorded)
-VP Calais = 4305 x2
-VP Calais V8 = 840 x2
-VP Berlina = 4464 x2
-VP Berlina V8 = 685 x2
-VP Executive = 33743 x2
-VP Executive V8 = 1832 x2
-VP Ute = 146 x2
-VP Ute V8 = 66 x2 (VG aren't they?)

some more info i stole from 88GreenVN's history thread
-HSV VP CLUBSPORT = 387
-HSV VP CLUBSPORT = 65 -5th anniversary
-HSV VP SPORT WAGON = 43
-HSV VP SPORT WAGON = 5 -5th anniversary (RARE one was manual)
-HSV VP SV91 = 103
-HSV VP +SIX = 82
-HSV VP MALOO UTILITY = 34
-HSV VP MALOO UTILITY = 15 -5th anniversary
-HSV VP SENATOR = 201
-HSV VP SENATOR = 15 -5th anniversary
-HSV VP SENATOR 5000i = 136
-HSV VP SENATOR 5000i = 30 -5th anniversary
-HSV VP NITRON = 50
-HSV VP GTS = 130
-HSV VP +SIX - 1993 = 58

VS Senator
easier to keep track of those flasher optioned cars as they are numbered.

OK the VP info I have recorded over the past 3 years.

VP's in my database 107,595 (this is not how many are made - just what I have recorded)
VP Calais = 4305
VP Calais V8 = 840
VP Berlina = 4464
VP Berlina V8 = 685
VP Executive = 33743
VP Executive V8 = 1832
VP Ute = 146
VP Ute V8 = 66

VP Unknown as to Calais/Berlina/Executive = 64937

This may help on the ratio factor between models.

The SS and Exec model and there is no way to tell.

so your numbers are pretty close. you said you've got 107xxx and i got told 111xxx made so your missing 4000 by my count not 6,500, yes?

HSV ENHANCED VP CALAIS
Does that include HSV enhanced cars?

I rang HSV when I bought mine and was told around 200 VP's were enhanced in total, but a breakdown of models was not available yet they received individual build numbers.
haha really? some would be been crashed now, and we have so many on this forum that there's probably not a hsv enhanced vp we don't know about :p

The totals are

Series 1 = 92860
Series 2 = 19089
Total = 111949

This is the audit number of VP's from Holdens.

The number in my data basre is for a Holden Production Number program I'm working on. I have not finished bashing out all the calculations yet - nor finished the database.

The numbers have changed a little from when I added the Series 2 VQ's into the VP production time line - and have not got back to it as yet. I'm still chasing the the VL data for the start of VN production over lap.

The 111949 is the total VP's off the production line.

The unknown are the VIN's I've added to know data. I have used "0" in place of the K/L/X.

I have rebuilt the many thousands of VIN's into the database. As info comes to hand (Ebay is a great place to get VIN's) I replace the zeros with the known data.

The change from 111949 came about as I change other car VIN's - like the VQ - it reduced the VP's.

This led me back to the begining of the VN's and the end of the VL's - THe Vn must have started clocking up the counter well before VIN L294000 and more VP's in Amongst the last of the VN's (show room cars for when the VP was released)
