At least one of the tags fitted to your new car does not belong to the body.

If you look at the ebay pic it has HJ COUPE and the UTILITY part has been removed where the plate is damaged
underneath that it has 2155kg which makes it from a commercial vehicle and the seating capacity is 3 which again makes it a commercial tag.

I was asking for the numbers off the other tag to see if it belonged to the car or not.

the pics don't do it justice, it says 5 seat capacity, it says hj coupe on the tag, in that pic, the other tag has
model - 8wp37jr
Trim - 1899-60y
paint - 567-15945
jade green, which is on the car now i'm guessing, twin headlight which matches the ls monaro, the trim matches as well, i'm pretty sure they belong to this car.
And the scratch isn't long enough to cover up the word UTILITY.

Sounds a fairly complete car and hopefully not too much work to get back on the road

A couple more questions if I may

Is the Body No. 8403xxS give or take 150 and is the trans a manual?
Does the number on the chassis rail match that on the ADR plate ie BHJ09124S
Is the number stamped into the firewall by the heater box within a hundred or so of the chassis number?

If all the answers are yes then it was most likely a factory [Naughty Pottyword]up on the ADR plate

Your interior ex factory would have looked like [http://gallery.oldho...|this] it looks like it has GTS seats and door trims in it at the minute, which look 100% better than the LS stuff.

Oh and welcome to the coupe club :)

The body number is - 854XXX-S
Engine - L31
Trans - M41
RRaxle - GU7
The ADR plate does not match the chassis, and the body number doens't match the chassis.
I have one question though it says its a 308 with a th400? i thought they only came out in statesman, also the engine number starts with a 11, but im not sure if it is the original engine or not. And your saying that it is gts trim as well, that doesn't match my trim number, i wouldn't know about that.
I'll post a pic of the plate, have just registered my shed.

308's that start with 11

are ones that were put in a Statesman at the factory.....

308's also had a T400 auto behind them from HJ models
the 253's kept the Tri-Matic.......

With the trim,

the LS seat stitch pattern is different to how a

GTS seat would look like.........

The seats look re-trimmmed, so guessing not stock, but what about the door trims do they look stock?
So i guess my engine isn't original then. Thanks for the info guys.

854xxxS put the build date at late May/early June 75, the correct chassis no. would be around BHJ24xxxS, and the body stamp on the firewall around the same number. Only the ADR plate and the chassis no. should match. The body no. should match the last 6 numbers on your missing Vin plate. Original engine number around QT638xxx

Given all the info so far I am almost 100% sure the ADR plate was from a manual ute, and when you paint the car and remove the plates turn it over I reckon you will see the Utility part of the stamp from the other side, but happy to stand corrected if I'm wrong.

The trim currently looks correct for a GTS with 60V trim, if you like it keep it.

All of this numbers stuff doesn't matter too much, although it is nice to know how the car left the factory, given the changes I would build it the way you like and don't bother with originality.

Looking forward to some pics

Yeah i like the look of it now, it has some spoilers with it, not sure if i want too put them on though. Yeah its a bit far from original, i think someone has tried to make a GTS mockup.
the chassis number is - BHJ237XXX
i cant read the engine number, my brother is holding the car for me, i'll have to get some pics.
Interesting to find out about what it has/had, i'll have to have a look at that ADR tag, why on earth would someone put that on there if it's a ute?

If it's a LS Monaro,
with a manual gearbox they are rare......

Although cheaper to buy than a standard one with an auto........
