The VN Holden Commodore is the first iteration of the second generation of arguably Australia’s greatest automotive moniker.

Released in August of 1988, the VN replaced the outgoing VL Commodore, and stayed in production until August of 1991.

The VN was a completely new car for Holden, and was essentially an amalgamation of General Motor’s Opel Omega and Opel Senator.

The VN was made available to customers in three different body styles; a four-door sedan, a five-door station wagon and a two-door ute.

Power was derived from a range of engines that included a 2.0lt inline four-cylinder, a 3.8lt Buick-sourced V6 and the venerable Aussie built 5.0lt V8.

The shove from these motors was sent to the VN’s rear wheels via either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission.

The VN Commodore’s model range was extensive and comprised the Executive, S, SS, Berlina and Calais.

This particular VN Commodore is a ’91 Berlina and comes equipped with the 3.8lt V6 and four-speed automatic transmission.

According to the seller, the VN has travelled an original and low 113,000 kilometres from new and drives very well.

The VN Berlina is $4990 and anyone interested in this tidy Aussie classic can view the full listing here
