Build Plates Research

For the most part, Parisiennes, Laurentians, Bel-Airs and Impalas sold new in Australia were assembled in Australia by Holdens - a division of General Motors. Therefore they had Holden builder's plates. An amount of information can be determined from them.

Help !!
If you own a one of these cars you can help with research by sending me the details of your builder's plate and any firm information you may have on the car. In return I will forward you information for decoding what I know and any theories that develop. I may not be able to provide much information initially however I will keep track of your email address and update everybody from time to time.

What do I need?
