Atlas Grey Series II VN SS: lifetime of receipts, original throughout

Surging interest in V8 Holdens has a renaissance for younger generations, VN and VP in particular over recent years.

Well-deserved and rightfully so, as the VN in particular was a smooth-running and refined package that set a new benchmark for V8 fuel economy at the time with great touring ability.


The downside is that even when VNs were cheap and underrated, good ones were already getting hard to find. Now… they’re not so cheap, and it hasn’t gotten any easier.

This one looks like it may be worth a look.

Finished in Atlas Grey, this 1991 VN SS is specified with the automatic gearbox and has covered 141,000kms over its life.


The seller describes the car to be immaculate throughout, with everything maintained to a high standard and with nothing left to spend.

Logbooks and receipts have been fastidiously collected over the car’s entire life; and is reportedly accident free with all original panels and glass in place. And yes, the engine covers are still in place.

The cabin is said to be original and as-new, with factory stereo and speakers all in place (no holes cut) and no noticeable wear or tear in the attached photos.


The seller states that this car would suit someone after a completely standard and original VN SS. They are happy to discuss the car further with those interested.

The VN SS is based in Victoria, and is listed for a slightly negotiable $35,000.
