Genuine one-owner, rust-free and original VC Commodore

The VC Commodore launched with various improvements over the preceding VB; bringing with it new and revised spring and damper rates yielding improved ride quality, fresh visual tweaks and the introduction of creature comforts like cruise control.


Engines ranged from a 1.9lt starfire four-pot to the 5.0lt V8; with power transferred rearward by either a three-speed auto or four-speed manual.

This particular VC Commodore L is specified with the 3.3lt Blue motor matched to the Trimatic three-speed auto.


It’s reportedly a genuine one-owner car with 220,996kms showing.

The sellers describe the car as rust and damage free, and exceedingly original down to its AM radio, excellent paint and chromework.


It looks like it’s certainly been loved throughout its lifetime and presents in great surviving condition.

It’s based in New South Wales and is on offer for $16,000.
