Model : 80837QR
Body : 303535-S
Trim - 1832-36X
Paint - 567 - 15824

Monaro

QR on the end of the model number actually stands for HQ and Right Hand Drive. Many people make the mistake of linking to the engine prefix for a 253.

Anyway here we go .

80837 = Monaro GTS V8 (253 or 308)
303535-S = Sydney
1832-36X = I think this should be 1882-36X = Monterey Green metallic paint with Juniper interior
567-15824 = Monterey Green Metallic paint
L31 = 308 engine
M40 = Trimatic transmission
GV2 = 3.36:1 Salisbury diff

Vin 8Q37TDH813535Q deciphers as

8 = GMH
Q = Monaro
37 = Coupe
T = 308 (high compression)
D = built between 1/9/73 to 30/8/74
H8 = Sydney built
13535 = sequence number (matches body number so that is good)
Q = HQ model.

That's about it so it all appears to be a genuine 308 GTS Monaro coupe.

It's a good find.

How bout some pics.

hk/g chassis numbers

Hi, I'm looking at three old monaro bodys one HK and two HG's, the id tags are missing on all three and all i can get from the seller is the body numbers which are as follows,
HK 33635SS
HG27993S
HG 26085S
is there any usefull info to be gained from these numbers and can the cars ever be registered again.
Thanks Matt

hk/g chassis numbers

AFAIK, they are just the body production numbers, which don't mean anything other than "this is body number 33635" (S is for Sydney, M Melbourne, B Brisbane).
this doesn't tell you anything about the specs of the car.
pretty much useless without the ID tags.
someone correct me if i'm wrong...

Ute VIN

The chassis is from an HJ and was built in Brisbane. There's not much else that can be deciphered from that VIN.

Ute VIn

That number you found n your rego papers or near the steering box.

If you got it of your rego papers it will say chassis number/VIN.

On an HQ to WB the chassis is removable and therefore could have been changed after an accident and that is why the chassis number states BHJ. VIN on rego papers is for VN Commodore on.

You need the GM-H VIN which is on a skinny plate nder the bonnet. The body ID plate is also useful for info, it is a large plate, the same size as the one which you got HZ 1978 of.

80737K

To determine if your 80737K is a 186s or a 307, Look for where the speedo cable exits through the firewall; If it exits just beneath the wiper motor, It's a 307, but if it exits next to the brake booster, it's a 186s.

hj caprice factory sunroofs

Hi have owned a hj statesman caprice with factory manual slide back sunroof for over 10 years never seen another the same wondering if anyone would know how i could find out how many were made?

sliding sun roof

Hi Dean,no body would actually know how many were fitted with sun roofs, as they were an expensive optional extra, fitted to any hj, hx or hz. Holden did consider fitting all their LE's with sun roofs as standard, but this proved to be too expensive, there are a few around in the le's though, I have seen them fitted in premier station waggons, statesmans, & coupes, they are very rare in the coupes and waggons, a little bit more common in the caprice being a top of the range model, but still quite rare, I owned an experimental model HQ statesman fitted with A steel sliding sun roof by holden and started researching them, they toyed with electric, manual, and even pneumatic air, and settled with mechanical in the early hj's and went on to use electric or mechanical later in the hz's. You have a rare old girl, I have a real soft spot for the caprice as I have owned quite a few over the years, enjoy all the best Don.

sunroof

Are you sure the HZ was optioned with the slider?
I looked into it a few months ago and everyone I asked said they stopped fitting them them after the HX.

I have a HZ prem and scored a roof chop that had a slider, from a HJ GTS sedan. I opted to sell it rather than fit it to my HZ, as it would have been suss having a slider in a body that never came with one as an option.

Ross.

production numbers

Hi,

I own a 1971 HQ LS Monaro running a 350 Chev and a Turbo 400 Shift Kitted trans. I was wondering if anyone out there could tell me how many HQ LS Monaros were produced in the year 1971. Also, can anyone make a guesstimate as to how many '71 Monaros there could be left out there.
Thanks a lot.

Not sure on exactly how many

Not sure on exactly how many numbers, I have been trying to find a bit more detail about this myself. I also have a 1971 HQ LS 350

The Monaro that never made it !!!

Back in the 70's they made a proto type monaro that never made it to the production line. can anyone tell me what model or year this was meant to be ??
As I have searched the web to no avail.

Thanks

cant say

they say that gts monaro was 73-74,yet a camaro was 68,

proto type munro

yes holden did make a proto type munro it was a 350 Z it was a late hq, going to be a hj production but got killed off by the government, they did not want any 160 mph coffins on the road, as they put it, no more horse power wars they said. Holden even went as far as the advertising campaign they brought out a song, which was based off "OLD MAN EMU" she can't fly but I'm tellin you she can run the pants off a super roo (GT HO).its a shame they couldn't go a head

350Z HQ coupe

This was not a prototype HJ it was a styling exercise for promotion to show that Hoplden engineers actually liked cars and working on them. It is an advertisement on the back of V8 action or Giant killers and another in the 1973 Melbourne motor show programme, prototypes DO NOT get shown to the public before release in those days. Also could not be production unless GM-H were thinking of no front bumper on the HJ.

Old man emu was a clay only so definately 70 or 69 build, well before the super car scare. (some say it was 72, but imagine if you wanted to build a styling exercise of the current VE, would you build a clay or just grab a current car of the production line????? I know I would just grab a current car rather than build a whole new car from clay)

The Monaro that never made it

Are you sure it was a Monaro?

There were a few concept Toranas that never made it into production.

HQ Monaro

Sorry mate, but what you have there is a Kingswood and not a Monaro.

Although the HQ GTS/4's shard the Kingswood model code, they have their own trim codes. Normally X or Y but I believe W, X, Y and Z were used on HQ GTS/4's.

Anyway, the E trim code means it is a Kingswood.

I was unsure about the A on the end of the model code but a bit of research tells me it means "automatic". Apparently only Brisbane built cars use this code.

If possible post up a photo of the ID tags so we can check the whole lot out and see if we can make any more sense from them.

The engine is a HQ series 253.

Hi, I just purchased a second hand 308 engine and T350 and are trying to find out what model or vehicle this came from. Engine prefix is VL then the number. I have also noticed some people asking for casting numbers off advertised engines on ebay etc. what info can they give. Is there a link to a site with all this type of info??????
Many thanks Craig.

VL engine prefix

My info does not list any 308's with a VL prefix.

All I have with the VL prefix is the VR/VS 5.7L 215kw HSV Stroker engine.

Maybe that's what you have.

VL Engine Prefix

A VL prefixed block is a VB - VK high compression 202 or a VR/VS 5.7L 215kw HSV Stroker engine as the guy above said.

I have recently purchased a ht gts monaro body shell which has only 2 id tags one of which is the long skinny one on the right hand side of the firewall looking into the engine bay. the other is on the left looking into the engine bay. there is absolutely no sign of any other tag being removed or being afixed to vehicle. I am currently selling it and have been asked what happened to the other tag with build date etc. Is it maybe an early ht with the carry over hk id tag method?? The existing tag is the one with model body number trim and paint codes.

HQ 4 door Monaro ID Tags

Can anyone help me?
I'm looking at buying a four door HQ Monaro and I want to know if the body matches the ID tags.
There is a number stamped into the firewall beside the ID tag on the right but it does not match the body ID number on the tag next to it.
What does this mean?

body number

Not much,,
The body number does not really have to match the ID tags, as the only plant this appeared to have been a consistant was Sydney, all other plants body numbers were not matched to the ID tags,
So long as your chassis matches the tag number and there is no obvious signs of the tags having been removed and replaced, (pop rivets are a good sign of this as the originals were blind rivets) then you should be ok, but if you have a tag that states the car was built in Brisbane for example, and the body number has a prefix from a diferent state, then you have a body swap on your hands,,,,

tags missing

My view is that with the tags missing, you should still be able to get the car registered but check with the rego mob of your state so incase i'm wrong, you havent wasted any money (i've had a car with no tags nor numbers exept a VP number which is stamped by victoria police).
As for the GTS bit, nah you can just consider it as a kingswood or belmont now, that value has gone forever even if it were genuine GTS.

Ummm...don't you think that

Ummm...don't you think that situation isn't the slightest bit retarded?

So the GTS was effectively identical to another model? You just said so yourself, you couldn't tell them apaprt except for tags.

Therefore what the bloody hell are you idiots doing spending huge amounts of money for what effectively is a few numbers punched into a small strip of metal on the firewall????

Seriously, no wonder things have gone insane, it's the equivalent of throwing junkies some crack. Oh well, luckily Kevin 07 will fix that. The teeming underclasses will be without their easy credit and back to $6/hr where they belong and a rough as guts old holden fun car will be back to a "buy and trash" value soon!

God Bless Lord Kevin!

Maybe i do

I've always said and maintain a four door is just a kinga with fancy numbers, whoo hoo but you can't deny if you buy a 4 door GTS as opposed to a kinga then come resale time the money's gonna be a whole lot more.
Oh and don't tar all with the same brush ya goose, Our HKGTS cost less than you'll ever believe as it's been Pam's daily driver for years but spent a few retired awaiting the build it's now getting.
You must be a tool to think you have anything to thank howard for; You need to thank China as the boom comes from them and thank god howard has gone so the boom can be used resposibly to set us up come the end of it.

model difference

But isn't it only the numbers that have ever been the difference. I mean if you went into Holden in 1977 and purchased either a Kingswood, Kingswood Sl, Premier or GTS sedan wasn't the only difference the numbers on the tags.

Is it not the difference today?

The tags only make art of the car and are only relevent if the car is restored to original, otherwise the bodies are the same irrespective of luxury level (except for some very inor items). For custom cars sometimes the lower spec cars are better as they have less body trim clips, which most guys remove, less luxury items that are not wanted, eg air con, ster etc.

The only reason GTSs are expensive at the moment is they are flavour of the month, they have always been more expensive than Premiers though, just not as much. Unless you want absolute genuine then just buy a Premier, almost identical in spec to GTS, Kingswood is not very close. Then add a few GTS bits and away you go.

what a stupid comment. a lot

what a stupid comment. a lot of musclecars lose their tags. due to theft. tags ave a lot of value and can be levered off quickly at a car show or even at corrupt mechanics workshops. but at the end of the day if the car can still be registered without them, then the car is still something that you can enjoy, and not have to pay the price of one with tags.

My 2 compliance plates tell two different stories one says its a 350 the other a 308.

Any help would be appreciated.

You may have to post the rest of your plate details for more info to solve this one. I am not one for 350 facts but from what I know, QR engine numbers are to suit 253's. But the number you posted has to many numbers. If it was QR 973980 that would make it around a HZ engine.

HQ GTS tags

These tags are not from the same vehicle on the early tags the difference between body number and chassis is around 100 not 3100. A complete set of Melb tags I have from 8/71 has the chassis at 5500 and the body at 5600. Whats the complete Vin I should be able to tell you which of the other tags it corresponds to.
Certainly would have been a rare combo Phantom Grey w/Black/Green Houndstooth and a Black vinyl roof

Was it white when you bought it? I remember when I was in Dandenong around the late 70s, a workmate of mine had a 350 LS that colour and he painted it white.

Munaro ID

80837 means that it is a 253 or 308 V8 GTS coupe.
Being a 1971 model the vin does not have the engine id in it
and the main body plate does not list engine or trans options either, so no further help there to say if it was a 253 or a 308.
Late edit something you can do to see if it was a auto car originally, is to have a look on the tag that says the ADR details on it (the one with the build date and chassis number on) and if it lists a 9 in the numbers listed there. ADR 9 means "Automatic Transmission Controls".
ADR 9 will only feature on vehicles fitted with a automatic transmission.

Monaro ID-

One very early build 6/71 . HQ's were released 7/71.
So one of the first to be built.

Someone probably thought it was an LS because it had a vinyl roof from the factory.
The paint was Phantom Grey Metallic and seats black vinyl with Black/Green Houndstooth inserts.
Not what you would think a GTS combo would look like.

Early build HQ

Midnite Cruiser.
I thought that it was a real early build as well until I checked the detail I have and found two other coupes before this one.
HQ 80837 V8 GTS coupe
Body 000071 M
and
GTS 350 Coupe
Model:HQ 81837
Body No:000360 M
Both are a few thousand cars before this one.

How many body's a day do you

How many body's a day do you reckon they were making ?

I know 4055 is a fair way from the start. Would it have been built on the 10th from the start of the HQ range ?

Body 000071 would definitely be on the first days build,
maybe the first coupe body also?

Build numbers

I talked about this a little bit with Leroy Jones about the Sydney plants production and he estimated that plant to be doing about 3000 cars a month.
I Checked with my SS details and a few others I have because I have a few exact build dates to use and I found that at the Sydney plant at least the amounts varied.
From the 24/4/72 to 24/8/72 14204 chassis were made which means around 3551 a month.
From 24/8/72 to 25/9/72 3865 chassis were made.
From the 25/9/72 to 21/11/72 6638 chassis were made which means around 3319 for that period of time.
I suspect it will change a certain amount due to actual demand in the month.
At the beginning of the run I would expect them to be going flat out in production.
So maybe more then than other months.
For a example of time lines of things this is a bit of SS related information.
For the Melbourne plant.
First car finished 18th August 1972
Public relations release August 23 1972
Initial deliveries to dealers in Victoria August 23 1972
First public showing at the Sydney Motor Show August 25 1972
National Advertising commenced september 1st 1972
Dealer Advertising September 3rd 1972.

Help with shell id

I have a shell with the id of 80737 TH612304 and Body HT29345S other details are 1068-HS.
Any help would be appreciated, cheers

Mother of Pearl

80737 is the code for 6 cylinder G T S coupe.

A9X Torana

Looking at the tags how can i tell if an A9X is Original?

A9X Torana

The A9X is a model option on both the SLR/5000 and SS 5000 and dosen't have a unique Model number.
model :LX8VD77 = SS 5000
model :LX8VD69 = SLR/ 5000
All A9X's were built in melbourne so must have a M at the end of the body number,they were made between 9/77 to 12/77 and will have a chassis number starting with CLX

A9x

Are you sure about the a9x not having a special model number and clx at the start and a m at the, end have lx with the same numbers as this with the same date

A9X

The A9X also pioneered the UC Torana rear floorpan (The angle and position of the top diff mounts are different), which means it will be running a Salisbury diff (The larger HQ to WB type, not the smaller UC one), and it will also have rear wheel disk brakes.

The rear floorpan section, with it's different top diff mounts is a dead give away. You can't fit a standard torana drop out center (or Banjo) diff into an A9X. It physically will not bolt up. If it has a banjo type diff, it's definately NOT an A9X.

Interchangeability

Do the A9X top diff mounts match the standard 6 Cyl UC Salisbury diff?

i have a HQ and was on the understanding its was a 4 door 1971 monaro yet im not 2 sure that it is. Could anybody please be able to tell me by the information i'm providing, i've looked in the rare spares book and it seems to be a Kingswood/Monaro and they have the same model number. BODY:009761M
MODEL: HQ80369
TRIM: 182-16G
CHASSIS: AHQ 09168M
And i have another number which i am not to sure what it's for and it is AHQ-09768M If anyone has any information regarding to this could you please contact me on either 0419 014 675 or home (07) 3285 6705 or please feel free to email me at babyjessxx@hotmail.com
Kind regards

Kev your HQ is a 1971 6 cyl. kingswood sedan ,
and can not be a Monaro 4 door as these weren't released until 3 month 1973

thanks mate but ill think

thanks mate but ill think you will find that there was 4 doors rolling out at that time as i have a rare spares book witch tells me that. would u be able 2 tell me where the car was made please thanks heaps

HQ Id

BODY:009761M means the 9761th HQ body made at the Melbourne plant.
MODEL: HQ80369 means 4 dr 6cyl kingswood sedan not a monaro.
TRIM: 182-16G
CHASSIS: AHQ 09168M this chassis number and the above body number I suspect are from around a late August early September 1971 build and as stated by Midnite Cruiser above its way to early to be a GTS 4 door.
A year to early for it to be a SS even, which were made before the first GTS 4 doors were made.

HQ Chassis

There is not much you can tell from just a chassis number but I can tell you it is a late 1973 early 1974 Brisbane built chassis.
B on the end of the number means Brisbane plant.
I cannot give you exact date but I have a record of a DHQ 518xx B chassis as being Nov 73 and a DHQ 542xx B as being Jan 74.

hq coupe

i have a hq gts coupe with all its original tags bar the chassis number can i re stamp chassis with the original number on the tag

NO

Check with your state authority ,you will find that they are the only ones allow to restamp .

But if the last rego hadn't noted a change of chassis number to when it was changed to the chassis it has now,

and you didn't tell anyone you restamped your chassis back to match then most people wouldn't know !

But you and i would know wouldn't we. Ha Ha Ha

Then when your selling the Matching Numbers coupe and the buyer is checking out the numbers you will be thinking is this the GUY that knows

Hq Coupe identity

Hi I have a 9/71 build HQ coupe with all tags, but the chassis tag number and the actual stamped chassis number are different. Is this possible from factory or is has the chassis been changed at some stage. I dont understand why the chassis would have been changed as every thing seems ok with car except that corresponding number.
Thanks Chris

Hq Coupe identity

A number of reasons for the change the car may have been smashed or the chassis rusted or cracked, which is common especially with a V8 fitted. Or a previous owner may have wanted RTS rails and used a later chassis. Whats the current chassis number?

Leroy

Hq coupe identity

Hi Leroy the current chassis number is CHQ42353M. What is my best option? will the RTA tell me what chassis number the car was last registered with and if it was with the original number should I just restamp the chassis.

SLE VH Commodore

Hi,
I have a 12/ 1981 SLE Commodore project it apears to have had some rapair work in the past which has poses some interesting questions.
It is a single metalic blue colour with the early VC SLE alloy wheels, The front guards apear to have been replaced, the doors and boot lid appear to be originals.
The body is white all over under the blue, which to me indicates a replacement body.
There is no over spray the whole car has been stripped, a new white shell painted blue and completely rebuilt.

I have tracked down the previous owner and he genuinely seems to know nothing of this, it must have been before he owned it many years ago when it was quite new.

The vin is 8x69LBJ779296H Chassis AVH 015340 M the tags are the right colours, but fixed on with steel pop riverts which could indicate that the front pannel at least had been replaced.
There is also a chassis number stamped into the strut tower CVH 1051893A also indicating a replacement body.
I have heard stories that the ill-faited VH Brock bodies were to be based on white VH SLE Commodores as some of these these had the 308 engine.
I don't suppose anyone knows what these chassis numbers these were to be.
I have asked through our licencing authorities here in the west and they had no information on the chassis number in the strut tower, maybe I need to try Melbourne as it has a previous Melbourne chassis number.

Unfortunately the previous owner no longer has the old licence papers, and doesn't look like it would do me any good anyway as the new chassis number was never registered.

Does anyone have any suggestions how I should go about licencing such a vehicle?
mike819783

VH SL/E

arly VHs have the chassis number on the front apron, later models have it on the strut tower. If the complinace plate number and the number stamped into the strut tower are diferent there is evry chance that you hav an old "rebirth" or 'rebody".

Being a white body underneath leans more to the rebody as you say. This would hav ben done when the car was less than years old, so 86 at the latest, after that cars become less valuable and are written off.

VH SLE

Thanks Holden fan,
I appreciate your opinion,
Will be an interesting time when I go to licence it!

There is no number stamped into the front pannel, the tag is there and it differs to the strut tower one.

I understand that 1981 has the number stamped intio the front panel and 1983 on has it at the tower.

Mike

LS Monaro plates

Your plates are from a Sydney built LS Coupe fitted with 350, turbo 400, 2.78 diff
Covert Met. is the colour and the trim should be either 36,38 or 39T, have another look at the plate.

The other line of numbers are the relevant ADR's that the vehicle complied with at the time of manufacture.

1 to 26

1 to 26 are Australian Design Rules numbers that your coupe has to have when made , to meet safety standards or emissions.

I suppose you already know that it's a 350 LS Monaro with a T-400 auto and 2.78:1 diff ratio ,
painted Covert Metallic,
the one thing i don't have an answer to is the trim colour but the T means it has Royal cord cloth inserts,

if it's 38 instead of 33 it will be Doeskin/Chestnut

It was bulit in Sydney 10 month of 1973.

Wow, so quick to reply,

Wow, so quick to reply, thanks so much guys!

The conflicting info I had was about the original engine. I wasn't sure whethere it was a 253 or 350, so thanks heeps for clearing that up. ATM it's running a 308.

I went back and checked the trim numbers. Ended up being 38T.

I'm still debating whether or not to attempt restoring to original or keep it as is... any ideas?

Either way, it's awesome to know exactly where it came from and what it used to be, so thanks so much :)

hq monaro id tags

Andrew the plate indicate an HQ GTS Coupe Glacier White, Black w/Houndstooth trim it is/was a 308.
Check on the plate that has the ADR numbers on it (also has HQ Coupe and the build date) check if ADR 9 is in the list of numbers if it is then your car was originally fitted with an auto, and the diff is most likely to be 3.08, if its a manual then 3.36. As for factory A/C does the crash pad have a centre vent in it like this then more than likely has factory A/C.

No black outs on 10/72 vehicles except for the sills.

wb holden panelvan

hello. i own a 84 wb panelvan. i am a bit confused about its origin. everyone says the sandman stopped at hx. and a genuine sandman number is HX8WM70. however my panelvan is windowless and a 3.3litre. now my code is WB8WM70 and L14 for the 6 cylinder. is the 8WM70 only stand for windowless and N70 numbers for commercial with windows. or do i have something else?

WB

You have a commercial model WB panel van,
it's not a sandman ,they stopped at HZ model.

HQ MONARO ID

Cheers midnight cruiser
your right model is 80837QR, which identifies the models as ?
also wondering about body no. and paint number

Cheers

80837 is a GTS coupe Paint

80837 is a GTS coupe

Paint number is the code you take to the paint shop and is Chrome Yellow

First part of the trim number 1878 is the paint colour
which yours is Chrome Yellow

body Number is just that the number of that body coming down the line

Point of order

1878 is Part of the paint code, the 1878 tells you it is a solid colour ie:not two tone, the 15893 is the code the paint shop will want to mix the chrome yellow, the 30x tells you it is a black vinyl GTS interior and the 563 tells you that it is a non-metalic colour.

The Vin tag tells you everything about the car's build
8= Australian Holden
Q= Monaro
37= Coupe
T= 308 Hi Comp
D= 1973
H8= Sydney
19205= number off production line
Q= HQ

So what you have is a 1973 Chrome Yellow GTS Monaro Coupewith a 308 and 4 Speed and 3.36:1 rear end with black vinyl interior.

point of order

Q in the VIN is a Monaro GTS

N in the VIN would be Monaro............

Dick Knows

NO the Q in the vin means Monaro, if it was N it would mean Kingswood.
M = Belmont
N = Kingswood
P = Premier or LS Monaro
S = Statesman DeVille
T = Statesman Caprice
Q = Monaro
