Holden Commodore/Calais VB, VC, VH, VK, VL (Exc.Turbo)

Not many years ago we were mourning the disappearance of early Commodores and predicting possible extinction. Happily, people listened and not only are there now more cars in the market but a lot of them are very well kept.

| Buyer's Guide: Holden Commodore VH

Australia’s oldest Commodores were made 40 years ago but very good VB-VCs still appear regularly and excellent 3.3-litre cars make $15,000, with V8s $10,000 more.

VKs have less kudos and are going to struggle for survival as they age, however VLs with the Nissan-sourced 3.0-litre engine attract younger buyers so there is greater hope for them.

SL/Es some time back looked to be heading for $35,000 and exceptional cars might still make that figure however most sell at $20-27,000.

VK-VL Commodore $9055 [33]
