The VC Commodore ran from 1980 to 1981. Maybe not the best looking car, although I really like it, but it does have a nice V8 and it's rear wheels drive. The tuxedo black and silver paint is also pretty classy.

The model is from Biante and is very well detailed. All the doors open, along with the hood and trunk. A bonus has to be the opening gas cap. This really is one of the best detailed models. It is just not as showy as other high end models.

love it! pretty certain we had it in the UK too, as a Vauxhall Commodore. It didn't have a V8 though; that would have petrified the tea sippers :-)

I remember these growing up as a kid in the 80's in Australia. Very common back then but these days if you see one they'd most likely be restored or a very clean classic example of one. The amount of detail on this model is crazy, Biante does some amazing work.

Never grew up with them, but most I saw when I lived in Aus were heavily modified. It was cool to see a family sedan like this with a V8, RWD and tons of power. By the 80s, most US sedans were front wheel drive.

Yeah, same car, but no V8 sadly.

I have the Biante 1984 Bathurst race winner, and it's obvious the same amount of effort went into it.
It is a later version of the OZ Commodore, but it still has the full road car interior!
And as far as I know that interior would have predated the requirement to fit flame retardant materials inside.....
