EH Holdens never had matching numbers. No early Holdens do.
If you have the original dealer's delivery paperwork you can prove that it has the original motor, nothing else.
"Matching numbers" only increases the value in the mind someone who knows no better.

To me a "matching numbers" car HAS never had a good life...
IT means its stayed in the shed most of its life hidden from people to admire it and complement it. If that's what you want to do with it than WHY buy it ?
I know a bloke I work with that's owens a (dare I Say it) a March 1 Ford Mustang and doesn't drive it. There goin for what $70-$80 grand ???
BUT he drives a V8 Toyota cruiser wagon with everything on it and tells people it owes him around $140 grand ?
To me I don't get it.
There's nothing like driving your "Old Holden" and watching the smiles of peoples faces that just light up, young and old, TRYING to get your attention so that you give them a wave back.
To me That's Priceless

You are so right about driving an old Holden and getting the waves.
I came down the highway in the EH last Saturday.
An XR6 Falcon followed me onto the highway at Port Macquarie and I sat on about 120ks with the XR6 behind me for about 10 kilometers.
Then the XR6 went around me and as they did the driver and his young son gave me big wave and thumbs up.

Even in the States the term “Barnfind” is sooo overused. If a car has been parked overnight it’s a barnfind.
Other over used words, Ol school, rat rod, patina.

Style side refers to the style of ute. eg. Step side, style side or one ton. A stylesides body follows the contour of the cab. A step side has exposed wheel wells. A one ton has a flat tray. Hope this clears it up for you Keith.

Hi Quick
I thought they were either a coupe utility or cab chassis. My Holden parts catalogue only list these two. Thanks buddy.

Dunno mate, that's how I perceived it to be. I don't think Holden's come out in a step side. Maybe it's a yank thing as some of the Ford f trucks do and that's how they see it.
