Trim codes

Hello there. Can any one help me with a trim code on a HR panelvan. It is 510-E73 Looked on the data base here and no such thing. I have noticed some of the other guys have had similar problems with the trim. Cheers

Model: 

Comments

510 is single tone Grecian White external paint
E73 is Mephisto Red vinyl interior

If you have any pics of the interior, it is one of the many HR trims I'm missing?

Thankyou very much for that. The interior is rooted. The dash pad and steering wheel are black and has hd interior in it. Cheers.

Mr Jones ...

A few people at oldholden.com say you're one of the Holden Gurus. Your shed pics add to your 'status' ... fantastic range of 'old' Classic Holdens.

I apologise for asking what seems to be the same question you have heard 100 times ... :|

I have an HR ute that I've started a "ground up" rebuild and want to get it (as close) back to original as possible.
I seem to understand everything else on the 'plate', BODY, PAINT etc, except ... Trim code is listed as 510-E78 which I thought (with a little help from Holden Club of SA) ... http://users.sa.char... ... was Grecian White with Mephisto Red. This thread with russ74, may be confusing me a bit. If E73 is Mephisto, can you shed some light on how E78 is also Mephisto, please? Your help confirming or correcting this would go a long way to saving me spending a large amount of money on an interior that MAY, in the end, be incorrect. My research seems to show a large range of colours and mixes were available (even for the 60's). Was it that E78 is Mephisto red but with something else, like the steering wheel was plain black instead of red too? Or am I over thinking this?

Can you help?

Thanks, Marc

E73 is the code for Mephisto Red in a panel van & E78 is the code for Mephisto Red in a ute.

E43 & E49 are the Mephisto Red codes for the 215 & 219 models respectively.

MarcHR, Dr Terry is the guru with 40 years in the trade + the author of 3 books, I am a looong way from that.

All the old Holdens up to HR had a separate trim code for each model and body style in each available trim colour, so as the Doc pointed out there are a number of codes for the one colour. The 2 tone trims belong to the Special sedan and wagon body styles.

I have a lot of holes in my shed so if you come across any factory trim could you take some pics and get the trim code.

Mr J ... as far as I'm concerned you have both made my choice to restore my HR significantly easier ... Superheroes ... mmmmm, maybe. Gurus ... Yup. Thank you both for the help.

I do have one more curly one.

The info on holdenpedia seems to agree that an X2 engine is painted in "Bright Red" and not the standard Holden "Red"for the 186.

(http://holdenpaedia....).

After 18 months of looking, I have just managed to get a (well used) copy of the blue Holden Shop Manual, HR Series, 1966. Of course, I couldn't wait to get reading but when I got to 6-51, X2 Engine General Information, it says ... "For identification, the engine is finished in a deep rocket red with a transfer bearing the symbol Holden 186-X2 outlined in black on top of the valve rocker". I have just (re)painted the (replica) engine that I am building and went Bright Red. Help, which is correct?

Marc.

Dr Terry, thank you for clarifying what seemed to be a very confusing subject for me.

Who would have guessed, a separate code depending on the body style ... sheesh ... How to introduce confusion 101

You have saved me several hundred dollars, at the very least ... at the most, I feel better about moving on with the restoration

Hi, i'm hoping this forum is still active.
I am stuck on a few things and would like some help in understanding the codes on the I.D tag.

My tags read;
Body: HR2104-9160-A (this I understand is a Panel Van however I am unsure of what 9160-A is)
Trim: 914-E73 (not sure what 914 is, I understand E73 is Mephisto Red)
Paint: 585-0091 (I do not know what these codes are, I have searched but cannot find anything)
Your help will be greatly appreciated.
