It is an aircon and power steer car as well. I have an engine number for it if the original is gone, looks like with 11QU127xx. Unlikely to be rebodied, but it should have a number on the firewall under the passenger side windscreen washer pipe that is close to 915xxS.

Is it a console shift or column shift? Power windows or manual?

Dr Terry pretty much nailed the rest of the info for you, although it won't quite be the 91538th HQ out of the Sydney plant as there will be significant amounts of cars that left this plant, particularly exports or Chevrolet 350 made for local Consulates without ADR plates and hence without a chassis number.

Nice car too, Orchid with Indigo trim.

HK1837,

The car is a TBar Auto (looks genuine), it has power windows but has a GTS dash - would this make it less valuable as I'm not sure it was standard?

Won’t be a GTS dash, only GTS and Sandman got one of them. You could option U21 on all HQ. Deville already had the right fascia, U21 added the taco and the gauges either side but kept the 120mph/200kmh speedo.

Sounds like a nicely optioned car. Did you check it’s firewall number and engine number?

It is crazy how you get a car with this level of options yet yours has the standard rear axle and no LSD. You have at least got:

Air.
Buckets.
Console shift.
Sports instruments.
Metallic Paint.
350ci engine.

It may have had other stuff like power antenna and heated rear window. Check if it has an exhaust hanger mount on the driber’s side on the member just in front of the diff. If original will look identical to the passenger side one.

Export HQs still got a chassis number, even though they had no ADR plate. Thanks Mark.

Not all of them did. I have seen one wrecked locally that had no chassis or engine numbers.
