yes can i have a straight story on this car i have bought. i seen one at a show on the NSW central coast. The owner stated that it was 1/50 with the build number being #42. He also said that only 3 remain. well he has one, gold lady has one and so do I, I'm guessing that there is a few still out there just how many no one really knows. I was lucky enough to get the bottle of port with my build number on it along with the gold medallion plus sales brochure, full service history , log books you name it a got it. the previous owner to me actually worked at th south australian Elizabeth plant at the time th car was built ! It has no rust and is in very good original condition ( one for the garage ). I love the looks i get from young and old obviously impressed with the old girls remarkably good condition. If anyone can give me some solid facts i would be very greatful. ty.

P.S mine is build number #265. so there was that many built at least.
#265/300 according to the bottle of port.

I know of another in Sydney too..#171. He contacted me to buy some spare front guard decals we had screenprinted.

So what would you like to know?
I've tried contacting GMH customer care who could tell me nothing...they have a 12 year black hole in their records.. '77-'89.

The '81 VC 50th Anniversary Commodore was produced to commemorate the merge of General Motors and Holden Body Builders. Around the same time as this happened, the 4 millionth Holden rolled off the line....these two cars are depicted on the medallion.

the car, medallion and bottle of port are all numbered identically, there were 300 made. I have an original letter from Holden stating this.
I also have the two broadcast production sheets from under the carpet listing the codes for everything that they came out with...they were supposed to be taken out before the carpet and seats were fitted.

if you have the contact details for the Elizabeth plant...i'd love for you to share.
This is our second 50th VC...had one about 15 years ago ...number 174

are you on facebook? i started the group and it should be able to be found. Did you buy this car from a fellow called Kym? I'm just curious because he'd only just bought it according to what he'd told me after joining our group. We'd love to have you on board too as so far we have managed to locate only 5 out of 300 produced.
i'll see if i'm able to post a direct link for you...i'm not too good with forums either.

try this...

wow...not heard of them being a manual but he could have had it changed or it was factory. Keep an eye out for it again and ask if you see him. There has to be more of them around.. we're probably waiting for the old boys to drop off or retire from driving them. Smile
Thanks heaps for the update.
