Wolf in sheep’s clothing

The VS Holden Commodore is the fourth and final iteration of the second generation of one of Australia’s greatest automotive monikers.

Released in April of 1995, the VS replaced the outgoing VR Commodore, and stayed in production until August 1997.

Changes made over its predecessor were mostly mechanical, with the VS receiving updates like a new version of the Buick sourced, 3.8lt ECOTEC V6, that was more powerful and more efficient, and a modified version of the four-speed 4L60-E automatic transmission.

Customers could option their VS in one of three body styles; a four-door sedan, five-door wagon and a two-door ute.

Power was derived from the either the aforementioned 3.8lt V6, which could be had in either a naturally aspirated and supercharged state, or the venerable, Aussie made 5.0lt V8.

The shove from these donks was sent to the VSs rear wheels via either a four-speed automatic or five-speed manual transmission.

This particular VS is a ’95 Executive model and comes equipped with the 5.0lt bent-eight motor and four-speed automatic transmission.

According to the seller, the vehicle has travelled an original 149,000 kilometres from new and has been enhanced by Holden Special Vehicles.

The VS is $11,000 and anyone interested in this Aussie V8 sleeper can view the full listing here.
