HG MONARO

Gday All,
unfortunately for me im not up to speed with the technical side of old holdens but being the monaro lover that i am , recently i was offered to buy a friend of a friends HG 1971 monaro coupe, dressed up as a GTS. it looks to be in amazing condition. among other information, i have contacted her for the body/chassis numbers and she tells me that they are
"HG31522M"

after researching the net ive found that the body/chassis should start with a 8.. i.e 80337GJ1 ETC... and is Located stamped on a plate attached to the right hand side of the firewall. i passed this information on but she insists that the numbers are what she has provided.

at present i am unable to view the car in person
could some one tell me either she is looking at the wrong numbers or perhaps this car has not got matching plates??

By the way this web site is a bloody rippa! loads of good lookin cars and great info

cheers

There are 5 numbers on a HG:

Chassis number as given by the owner
VIN which you describe
Model, simular to VIN
Body number, simular to chassis number
Engine number

There is no such thing as a matching number Holden. This is a Ford term as they use the one number for all of the above, but Holden use different numbering systems for each, and therefroe can never be matching.

HG31522M will be stamped in the firewall and is the chassis number for registration. The other number is a Holden number on the body plate used by Holden and describes the type of model - check in Holdenpedia.
