    HSV Statesman/HSV Grange

    I always thought that the Grange as a separate model appeared in 1996 (with the release of VS Series II). Earlier sport version of Caprice sold as HSV Statesman. The official web site HSV indicated that Grange already sold in 1995. Maybe Australian enthusiasts will help clarify this?

    Pretty sure it was from Series II VS onwards. Prior to that there were HSV enhanced Statesmans going all way back to VQ. Back in the day each Grange got a bottle of Grange with the car. Not sure if it still happens or not.

    Sounds right. I got the HSV 88-03 book for Christmas, but I think you are correct.
    I doubt they still get the Grange.
