I have seen that a lot of people have been asking about dealer codes. As there is no complete list available :cry: I thought that if everyone posted the dealer and their number that they know of, we could make a complete list for future reference. This list would be very handy for anyone trying to trace the history of their car. As dealer numbers have changed over the years, list only the dealer numbers that you know where current for the 70's. The following list is from another thread so please let me know if any are incorrect.

000 Internal Holden code (race cars etc)
030 Dwyers City Holden. 31-33 Crown St, Wollongong, NSW
078 Southern Motors. 19 Flemington Rd, North Melbourne VIC
452 Patterson Motors VIC
457 Mayse's Holden, Spotswood/Yarraville
549 Jack Dodds Motors PTY LTD, Kempsey NSW
607 Inder Motors, Bolgowlah
615 Hunt's Holden Lakemba, Sydney
649 Lecorneus Service Garage, Kingston SA
738 Bill Chadwick Holden. Collangata QLD
871 Williams Bros PTY LTD, Ballina NSW
901 Nanango Motors. 102 Draton St Nanango QLD

Hi

As far as I know, Dealer code 457 (up until 1978) was Preston Motor's (Footscray). From then it was Alan Mance Holden. My car was purchased from 457 in 1972.

If you know the name of the Dealer that a car was first sold through, post the name of the Dealer and the details of the vehicle ( vin Number ), then the Dealer number can be obtained from the master vehicle file.

Hi

I emailed Holden Customer Assistance Centre asking whether they have records of the older dealerships codes. They politely said that they can't assist.
