    I know the SS, Calais and perhaps Berlina VY came with the LS1 but was it an option on the Executive model?

    If so how much are they going for these days? I am assuming that they are rare and a Berlina VY with an LS1 would probably cost the same as an SV8 or SS no matter how old they are getting now.

    I see lots of VX's with LS1's but not many VY's in non sports models (exec etc)

    yea, the closest thing youre going to get to a vy v8 exec would be an sv8, that's why that model was introduced.

    You can get what is effectively a V8 VY Executive. There was a special police version, which is auto only and have only Executive options but SS seats. I looked at a couple before buying my SV8.

    Ex HWP (924 pack) will be your only option, plenty for sale in Syd.

    sorry - i'm sure i saw on the holden website that the v8 was optional. i have seen v8 executives on carsales.com.au, yet some websites say the v8 was no longer an option?!

    Im pretty sure there wasn't an option for the vy exec, the ones you saw were most likely 9C1 police packs.
