According to Norm 18V on an S is a black Sadlon insert in a Slate black seat. Possibly done so the seats sort of worked with the black door trims and other black stuff. He has 18W on an S as straight slate black seats in black trim which should simply be SL 18V Slate black buckets in standard S black interior.
Norm also has Gpack with 19V trim. Maybe the cars built for sale initially had standard S 19V trim hence why the POA makes no reference to a changed or unique trim?

My guess is 18W is the trim on the second run of Gpack in late 1975.

That would explain why there seems to be 2 trim codes mentioned around the place

So looks like 19V, 18V and 18W. The change from 18V to 18W is consistent with the approx 8/75 trim changes across the board in Holdens. Not sure why early ones have 19V and soon after 18V.

Is this similar to 18W? It is a Valiant material that is still available here and there. It was green and painted black by the owner of the car.
