Holden Commodore 1979

Sale price: $22,500.00 make an offer

Car location: Grovedale, Victoria, Australia
Seller's notes: The car has been completely and painstakingly restored (body, interior and entire power train) over the course of 18 years. It's immaculate condition. Although garaged and only driven to car shows, events and weekend drives (in fine weather only) it has incurred some very minor stone chips on the front stone guard (under the grille) and barely detectable marks on lower area of the rear guards (immediately behind the wheels). The engine bay had been repainted (around the short motor before complete assembly.) But there are some marks from heat, minor scratches around strut towers and cross-members, a previous leak from the brake booster had affect one of the cross members. The paint has started to wear under the battery location. Some surface rust (cosmetic) between firewall and engine bay (within wipers compartment). The exhaust manifolds have gradually started to lose their original Pacemaker blue paint, due to heat and general wear and tear over the last 10 years.
