    Default Help with identification compliance plate please - HX Ute

    Hi everyone,

    Firstly, Merry Christmas to anyone reading this today. Iíd love some assistance identifying what the following means:

    Model: HX8W M 80
    Body No: 236357-A
    Trim: 0904-67W
    Paint: 568-0105
    Eng: L23
    Trans: M15
    RRAXLE: GV7

    I believe the model means HX utility. The L23 is a red 202. The trans is an auto trimatic. Trim 67 could be Tan colour.

    Would really appreciate any help here - especially with the paint colour... Iíve read a few conflicting things online and very keen to know what the original colour was.

    Cheers,
    Fixhead83

    Trans M15.. is 3 speed manual (even though it might have an auto in it now)

    Adelaide build that ... but the paint code???
    568 is Dulux but the rest?.. not enough digits
    GMH dulux paint lines were 567-12345 or 568-12345
    568-0105 is incorrect

    Thanks very much Smitty - how can you tell it's an Adelaide build?

    Also re paint code - here's a pic of the plate. The best I could find online is a few people have suggested it's called "Kiewa Grey" and was a fleet colour used by SEC Victoria. I'm just not sure if this is too early a colour for a HX:

    Any idea on the other codes (Smitty or anyone)? Thanks v much - appreciate the help.

    If anyone could confirm the paint too (Kiewa or otherwise) that would be great. TIA

    Paint is Kiewa Grey
    Its a Holden ute, low compression 202, 3 speed manual and 3.55 diff ratio
    Trim is tan.

    Thanks very much SL/ENUT! Are you able to confirm the following (sorry to be pedantic):

    Body No: 236357-A - do you know what this means?

    Trim: 0904-67W - bench or bucket seats can you tell from the 0904?

    RRAXLE: GV7 - presume a Salisbury?

    Body number is just that, A denotes Adelaide built.
    Trim, first number is just the extrerior paint with interior trim combination. You won't tell if bench or buckets from trim.
    Diff would be most likely a banjo diff.

    Thanks very much SL/ENUT, really appreciate your (and Smittyís) help here. Have a great New Year. Cheers

    P.S canít find a picture of a HQ-WB painted in Kiewa Grey, but glad you confirmed this was the colour. If anyone reading this has a pic of one please post it...
