Help deciphering VIN codes - is it genuine?

Hi team is anyone able to assist with deciphering a NZ VIN for a car that I am looking at buying.
8Q69TEZ78XXXXJ. From what I can find online I have worked out as follows:
8 - AU Holden
Q - Monaro
69 - Sedan
T - 308 H/C 5.0lt motor
E - year (1975)
Z7 - is this meant to be assembly plant??
8XXXX is the production number
J - series code (HJ 10/74).

Bathurst 1946

This is the NSW Gran Prix at Bathurst in 1946: https://www.youtube....
It was the first race there since WW2.
Frank Kleinig was there in his red Hudson Special (The 100mph Car) and Gelignight Jack Murray raced his Mackellar Special ( Bugatti Type 37A with a supercharged Ford sidevalve V8)
They were both timed at 110MPH over the quarter mile on Conrod. No seatbelts, no safety barriers, people standing on the side of Conrod straight.

Are these ignition coils any good?

Hi fellas,

I've tested these coils (see picture) with a multimeter as described in the instruction booklet that came with the meter.

Temperature at the time was 28 Β°C. The resistance in the test leads was 0.2 Ohms.

The coils are as follows:

1. Bosch SU12R - was fitted to a 253 engine.

2. Bosch GT40R - was fitted to a 350 engine.

Both are now shelf items, but being the tight ass that I am, I don't want to discard items that might still be useful one day.
