thanks mate, when i bought the car the fella said it was a monaro sedan but bloody hell it is hard to find out any consistant info about identifying a monaro sedan.

i have found some documents on the net which would justify it to be genuine, but others which do not help at all! has anybody else got a HQ GTS Monaro sedan which they could correlate body numbers/vin numbers off for me?? i have read that the Trim codes can be a good way to clarify??

Cheers!

Unfortunately, the first Monaro sedan to have its OWN code was the HJ. The HQ used the Kingy codes. As a suggestion to you, perhaps go to monaro.com.au and click on the Monaro Register link. That will bring up an email page. Basically put in ALL the details from your three plates (Body plate on pass side, VIN plate + Compliance Plate far right side) and you may be able to verify it that way. The codes might give a clue for them to let you know.

Its free and definitely worth a shot if trying to verify the authenticity of a Q GTS sedan.

To check the plates belong to that chassis, go to the compliance plate and there will be a number starting like "AHQ", "BHQ", "CHQ", etc, followed by about 5 number and a letter. That is your chassis number and should correspond to the actual chassis number, located on the right chassis rail, near the steering box.

For the very early HQ GTS4's the only way to ID 1 is by the trim code "x", by the date yours was built sydney should of been using the new code system, as it came into use in october 72, My HQ which is almost identical to yours carries the "WQ" code which is for the monaro only, was built in melbourne.
Has yours still got it's stripes, or where they deleted??..

Hi Small world

you are buying 65471-s

And next week end i am picking up 64571Q

wow almost the same number as mine but mine comes from QLD
and the paint code is the same 12692 - one paint code book calls it turnpike orange, the other tangerine

and any trim code that ends in w x y or z is monaro

What is the build date on your car, mine is 3/73 but my make has one built 2/73 definately a early car as they were release 3/73 to the public, but had to be made slightly earlier

Regards
George
