Some old post had the VIN serial numbers of the VN starting at around 270,000 to 280,000. My VN owned from new on the 27/10/1988 was 306610. - Build date 6/10/88

Has any one have a lower serial no still running around?

Lowest so far 294,999 July 1988

Edit 294,956

Recalls 273,550 (no date)

Last found so far S/N 529,550

lol Mine is 495,218... Lets make it the highest wins a prize...

By the way the number of VN's made was 206,750....so 495,000-206,000 = 289,000. So I presume the lowest serial number would have to be around 295,000???
Considering VN's were made for a few months after mine still.

Note VN's were available from the 17/8/88 so yours would be one of the earliest made, first 10,000 or so?

The production was about 5000 per month and they made around 5000 before releasing the mighty VN on the Aussie public

The other VN I have is a 91 V8 - has a number of 508619

But...then doesnt that mean the earliest possible number is 302,619???

If there were only 206,000 made the VIN number would only be spread over 206,000 numbers?

When I said yours would have been one of the first, I meant as it was bought on the 27/10/1988 it obviously wasnt built on the same day... Its build date must be earlier so I would say only 10,000 woulda come before it... Whats the build date on your car?

I think the date was 5 Oct 1988. The car is on the road at the moment I'll look later. We had to wait for 2 weeks to get the car. They produced the pre release units (5000) in Aug 88 I think. I was always wondered about the 3 at the beginning of the serial number. I think 280,000 for the first is about the mark. It would be good to know!!

Just looked at the build date of the wagon and it was 6/10/88. I think the number built was closer to 214,000 - Seen on a big holden poster. Has anyone got a holden production poster with all the models and numbers built?
