    I have the full details in the study at home

    but quickly
    VH SL/E with 381 pack (8VX69 = SL/E) 381 = productiopn/sales pack

    body = body number on VH series M = Melbourne (from Memory)
    and the cars VIN/Tag should start with a "J"

    Trim and Paint ..have the full codes at home
    2J01 I think is white but I can tell you D = Dulux

    in fact I think I have the actual GMH engineering sheet
    for all of VH...might scan and post up

    cheers so far, can you tell if this is a rare model, as some has suggested my VH may be one of the "30" dealer cars sold to a yard for sales.
