Before the Holden Crewman there was this, and if you think it looks a bit different, you are not alone.

It’s essentially an SS Commodore that has had its boot cut off and then replaced with a steel chassis which extends the wheelbase by a meter, so that a new tray can sit on top of it. The boot is then flipped upside down and reattached as an integral part of the rear structure.

It looks like it was a complicated procedure, and was performed by a group that was called ‘The New One Tonner Co.’ who completed surgery on VSs and VTs in limited numbers. These particular VT SS models were a special edition, and the number of builds was kept to just 47.

The benefits of this transformation meant that you got the comfort and practicality of a regular VT sedan, with the convenience of a ute.

This particular ‘New One Tonner’ is number 1 of 47, and, according to the seller, has travelled 152,000 kilometres from new.

In addition, the vehicle has the original ‘New One Tonner’ build plate attached and accompanying booklets and paraphernalia.  

The seller is asking $24,000 and anyone interested in this practical powerhouse can view the full listing here.
