Holden Commodore VC 1980-1981

In March 1980, the VC Commodore was released. The model line-up was basically as before, except the base model was now known as the Commodore L.

GMH introduced the new “Blue” motors, The Blue 6-cylinder and V8 engines replaced the long running “Red” motors used in VB and earlier Holden’s.

The Commodore VC SL/E was available with a new Shadow tone exterior colour scheme. This was a dark over light, two-tone paint layout, The Shadow tone Pack also added power windows, central locking, cruise control, rear speakers and rear seat head restraints to the standard SL/E equipment.

Although the VC series was on sale for one month less than VB, 25 per cent more units were sold
