PostSubject: HOLDEN & RARE SPARES STRIKE A DEAL   Thu 24 Jun 2010, 9:15 am

(Taken from the Advertiser Today)

A deal between Holden & Rare Spares has secured the supply of Factory-quality parts and accessories for owners of classic model Holdens.

Under the deal,Holden will hand over drawings of tooling once it has finished with them, and Rare Spares will handle the production and distribution of the parts.

Distribution will be through Holden dealers who choose to sign up for the program or the Rare Spares national network of franchised outlets.

Under the arrangement, owners of classic Holdens from the original 48-215 of 1948 to the VS commodore of the 1990's will be able to source parts and accessories of the same quality as those originally fitted on the Holden assembly line.

Rare Spares general manager David Rayner said the program would improve the availability and price of Holden parts and accessories.

"Making low volume parts at an affordable price can be difficult, so working with Holden will allow us to rapidly increase the number of products under the new brand.

He said that while demand has traditionally been for parts for older classics such as FJ or 1960s EH, and Monaros and Toranas of the 1970s, demand was growing for parts for later models like the Commodores of the 1980s and 90s.

Rayner said there was a lot of interest in the VB,VH,VK & VL model Commodores, as well as the later VR & VS Commodores, particularly the upmarket models like the Calais and the SS.

Some very good news for the owners of early girls, and sports models.....

Cheers Andy

That is excellent news to all! Instead of worrying about the availability of rare parts (and then having to use donor cars for sources), we can get factory grade parts from decent sources... I like where this is going!

Rebuilding (from the ground up) old girls will be way easier now...
