I posted the ? about hsv jackaroos (post id 6850)
You mentioned there is a burgundy one that you've seen,
would that be down in mandurah by any chance?

Just wondering cause there is one for sale from down that way.

Hi wolf,

Not in Mandurah. The one I have seen is in Carlton NSW and isn't for sale (as far as I know). It's owned by a young family here.

Do you know if the dealer has a website? I might be able to guess whether it's a genuine 93 HSV or a mock-up based on a 95 if I saw a picture of it.

All the best....Savvas

Savvas hi,

This one is a private sale.
Have rang him to ask questions about the car.
Late '93 (he's listed it as '94!) has 186K km on clock.
The guy's a mechanic and has done t/belt and water pump.
Full of extras and is burundy with silver trim.
He gave me the history of the so called HSV Jacks.
He says they were basically the prototype of the future Monterey,
Holden put on the body kit and a few extras except for the auto hubs
to test the market. Though HSV doesn't recognise as an authentic HSV spec.
He wants $14000 for it but it's got too many km's for my liking.
Asked him if he has had the head off and he says no, so me thinks
that this will most likely be a prob very soon. I've been through 4 heads
over 200000km in my 84 jack, diff motor I know but they are still alloy!
For some reason I thought you were in WA,
cheers for the reply savvas

G'day Wolf...

The LS is the predecessor to the Monterey. In the US, they were still called LS and Limited until the end. The name Monterey is taken from the Vauxhall variants of the Isuzu Trooper of the mid 90's.

HSV recognises them as authentic, but does not include them in the HSV classics program which they want to limit to the V8 commodores.

Will it be a collector's item? Hard to tell. I reckon it could become a collector's item especially for HSV collectors. But it won't be an investment piece, ie. not big bucks.

The heads shouldn't be a problem if they have been serviced according to the schedule. The valves should have been adjusted with shims being replaced at 100000km and they timimg belt should have been replaced 160000km. If they have been done, then it should be relatively trouble free. If the cooling system is as good as the one in mine, alloy should not be a problem. At the end of the day though, 186000km is not a new engine so you need to be diligent when checking it over.

I wouldn't mind getting my hands on a 96 or so SWB XS Jackaroo.

HSV Jackaroo
Number Built: 79
Engine: 3165 cc V6
Power: 130 kW @ 5200 rpm (174 hp)
Torque: 260 Nm @ 3750 rpm (129 ft/lb)

wonder if they'd be a collectors item seeing they only made 79 of them
and with the jack not being built for Oz anymore?

Savvas hi,

With a march 1994 model monterey, do yopu know if they have airbags and LSD?
The RACWA site says they do but "red book" & "what's it worth"
don't make mention of these.

Do you really need LSD. My main 4WDing will be on the sand.
