Hk identification

Hi all, just wanted to know if anyone could shed some light on a vehicle for me, I am looking at what is meant to be a hk Monaro, however the vin number is 80569kj101161 I believe this is the number from a premier sedan? And am assuming this has had the tags changed and not that Holden didnโ€™t distinguish between coupes and sedans early on??
Cheers

I remember seeing a car like this 10 years ago, the Chassis number, stamped into the firewall, was around the 5K mark with Premier sedan tags.

The chassis number aligned with the Prem tag for around March 1968 built when the Monaro did not come out until July.

Most motor registries back then registered Monaros as sedans so using a Premier sedan firewall number to rebirth a Monaro was no problem.

I bet you a close examination of the car will show a new firewall section welded in, was all the rage back in the 70s.
