Holden Commodore/Calais VE-VE II

Hard to believe that 13 years have passed since the Aussie Commodore’s most dramatic and final major restyle.

With realisation sinking in that there will be no more Aussie-made Holdens and people becoming nostalgic about owning one, the battle is on to find an excellent car. The market remains well supplied with 2006-09 models and values keep running contrary to expectations.

SV6 and 3,0-litre Calais sedans and Sportswagons showing 150,000km will still make $12-15,000. A 6.0-litre Calais V sedan with similar kilometres is $3000-5000 more expensive but the Sportswagon V is scarce with more collector potential than the sedan. Outstanding V8 wagons make $20,000.

Commodore VE SV6 2006-09 $10,635 [67]
