That is good that Leo remembered it. As he says he has forgotten a lot of them.

I think Leo is selling his efforts short though as by December 1972 they built the Sandman prototypes and just over a year later were building Sandmans which were essentially a GTS ute minus the interior trim and GTS badges.

Great bit of history on your ute DW. Congrats. Applause

Interesting that Leo says "The Chateau Mauve exterior colour was a new colour we had developed in-house, and planned for a future colour range, so it was promoted on this ute as well".

Chateau Mauve was released for Holden & Torana in Feb 1972.

I can only assume Leo is referring to the fact that Chateau Mauve was not available on Belmont & Kingswood at the time your ute was built.

Edit: I'm sure Ben at HHS would appreciate a copy of Leo's email.

He may be referring to when they put the car in the schedule to be built that Chateau Mauve was an upcoming colour.
