No such thing as a V6 Maloo, and they were never badged 'LS' either.
Type in vg v6 maloo in your safari search engine and it will show you that there were v8 and v6 engine in this model 1991 year then let me know what you find out

Absolute classic, the body style has aged so well. I've wanted one of the these ever since I was a young fella.

Add in the 5.0 liter engine of the gods, I think 36k for it might be stretching it a little though. I wonder what it sold for.

Shannon’s just sold one on there site
Sorry, unless it's one of those watered down NZ versions of HSVs (V6 GTS anyone!) I don't believe HSV made any V6 Maloos.

Wiki agrees with me:
  • GTS V6 (New Zealand export)
  • LS (V6 utility)
  • Maloo (V8 utility)

Correct. HSV made V8 Maloos, and the LS with a V6. One is and apple, the other is an orange.

But if the OP has #1 of the 54 made, that makes it a classic in it's own rights. Just enjoy it for what it is, not what it isn't.

As myself and figjam have pointed out, VG Maloos only came in 5.0 V8 180kw form. I don't doubt you've got a nice LS V6 HSV ute but it's not a Maloo. Maloo was named from the Noongar word for thunder for a reason ;)
