    VS EXECUTIVE S2 Ute
    Hey

    I bought a 1998 VS commodore it’s not long ago and was told it was an S pac and I’ve been trying to search up the model number to see if I can find anything on it but haven’t found anything.

    The model number is
    VS8VK80-011

    S, SS, Clubsport, Manta, and couple of others will all come up as Executive/base model Commodores on VIN decoders as that was what they were based on.

    My VR ute is supposed to be an S Pac. But there I'm not 100% certain as there is nothing like a an S badge or anything to identify it. I was told it is an S because it has a few upgrades that the S would normally have.

    Have been told by local Holden dealers spares parts guys that supply vin # and they can tell you everything that was factory fitted and therefore factory specs / model .

    Sadly all the Glove box key numbers that GMH had on file have been lost while changing software in their system and so has quite a bit of other stuff. All they have now is general info on each vehicle but not the comprehensive stuff they used to have as they consider it as "not worth having"

    BTW an Acclaim is also noted as an " Executive" as to add to the above list of vehicles that RJK posted.

    Cheers

    well ive looked it up i comes up as a base model executive, not a S Pack. It’s a column shift auto, white ute with bench seat, fleet orders , with steel wheels from factory

    so no factory options apart from probably A/C and is a late model series 2

    i'll post a few screenshots tonight

    Mine has taco, cruise, central locking, alloys but a bench seat. Also has pin stripe, tub liner and the plastic thing over the back window. Not sure how much if not all was added later.

    Also keep in mind these cars are about 20years old and alot of stuff can be fitted after its ordered from Factory

    Sometimes even dealers fit certain parts rather than getting it fitted from factory

    Exec24 can you please look mine up? 718115. I used the number off the windscreen I assume this is the same number as under the bonnet.

    Just kidding, there is something odd though. It says nothing about cruise or central locking but says I have ABS, and five seats????

    Maybe it was originally fitted out for interstate drug smuggling and it had two ejector seats in tray, driver hit button when about to get caught, oh there goes seat,smugglers and drugs!!
