VS Calais & vh sl
I picked up my wagon about 2 weeks ago after being over the whole chev in a commo thing and selling my vb.
Its basicly a stock 202 vh sl pretty tidy for and old girl and its had all the suspension done with kings lows allround, new shocks and all the bushes, balljoints ,tie rods, steering rack etc... it came with 14"stocko wheels and mud flaps but they didnt last long before i ripped the flaps off and fitted the 17"s of our xu6.

Plan is to drop in a healthy 355, t400 and custom vl diff then tidy up the carpark dings and give it a fresh coat of paint and possibly a vh group 3 kit.

I will update as things progress but its gunna take me a while.

all original except the wheels as far as i can tell but its had a respray some time in its life and once the drive line is done it will be getting done again. the pics hide alot.

once the drive line is done i will be removing the spare wheel well and getting a drop tank made then running the exhaust out each side.

ah good to see you back with a Holden V8 :)
Chev's were never a good conversion in a Commodore, and really have no advantage over the Holden V8 anyway - apart from maybe cheaper performance parts.

and even better you are now in a red VH! Good choice :beer chug:
the interior has the same exact colour scheme as my previous VH.

Should be one tough wagon once you drop the 355 in, keep us updated
might see it out at the Munch Inn

Car is now off the road for an engine transplant. Going to an ecotec out of a vs as it was to cheap to pass up and next year will be getting either a v8 or turbo.

will post some pics of prgress as they come to hand.
