So please wait for someone cleverer than me. But Isn't N Belmont? And Q Monaro? Hmm, I hope it turns out to be what you're wanting, the car I mean. Good luck..

You know what they say, often a little bit of info can be dangerous. (-:
But the HF just below is onto it. I seem to remember something about the early Monaros not having Q, but stamped N.

The car will be an early 1973 build, the first HQ GTS sedans had N instead of Q.

Sorry I’m late I did bring a note lol

I’m thinking the N should be a M but this is what I came up with in my book,
But the early build are N69 as it states a Kingswood
Take a pic of the other plates for me an I will have a look at them for you mate

Why is it ok for an old bloke to drive an unroadworthy[Naughty Pottyword] heap?

Trim is the tell of the tape. W, X, Y or Z after the number will define a GTS. Example being 30X. I believe anything with W is rare. Been a while since I worked with these letters.
