Holden Panel Van in Barbados Green
decades Aussies have been taking the humble Panel Van and turning it into their own Aussie icon, some to stunning effect. Classic Carlectables new 1:18 diecast release, based on the Holden VU, does the same. With psychedelic graphics on a stunning Barbados Green body and luxuriously plush interior, in Burnt Orange with red suede, it’s a sentimental look at capturing all the fun and nostalgia of the period. Other standout features include multi-speaker audio system, 5.7 V8, 19” alloys and a lift-off short-board. For more details go to www.classiccarlectables.com.au concluded on July 15 at Warwick Farm after the completion of eight rounds. While it was Allan Moffat who dominated the series and took the title, it was Peter Brock, at the wheel of his Holden LJ XU-1 Torana who emerged as the rising star. Classic Carlectables marks this with their limited-to-1000 release of this superb 1:18 diecast model, complete with working suspension arms and soft racing slicks. The amazing engine bay includes etched metal hinges, accelerator linkage detail and a tangle of pipe work, just like the original! See more at Classic’s website.
