Okay so as of the 18th of Feb 2014, I purchased this one owner vh SLE! :D

Car: Holden VH SL/E Commodore
Year: Feb 1982
Engine: 5.0lt Carby V8
Trans: 3spd trimatic Auto
Diff: Possibly a 2.78? LSD?
Interior: Two tone dark/light blue velour
Exterior: Factory Indigo Blue paint and white pin strip
Wheels: Series 1 SLE wheels


Other info: It's a 1 owner car with history, all untouched and is as appeared from the factory aside from being lowered. Its a 382 Pack incorporating the optional twin exhaust, Full electrics, windows, central locking as standard, Zero rust in the car,
Everything down to the a/c works in the car!

Plans:
1. Put my polished S2 alloys on it
2. Pull the motor, Quick freshen up + small - mild cam (Gasket set, welsh plugs, new waterpump, fuel pump, Paint ect.. Back to stock form), Service the Auto, Service the diff, rebuild carby and usual service items.
3, Tidy up a little wiring in the engine bay
4. Put the original Venetians in this car

Nice find. Tidy VH's are very thin on the ground these days and values are gradually going up. Those old Blues were a bit of a slug back in the day strangled by emissions but these days it's quite easy to make it come alive.
