Several of Holden’s personalised number plates to feature in ‘Holden Heritage Auction’ later this month

If Holden's decision to unceremoniously auction off a number of its heritage collection cars is the stuff of dreams but beyond your budget, you'll be pleased to know the company is also selling off personalised Victorian number plates depicting different models from recent decades.

Available through the same auction house as the heritage collection cars, the plates bear the model names of many of its significant cars, including combinations like VESS-04 (relating to the VE SS Commodore), WM-0001 (WM Statesman), VYS-1 (VY Commodore S), and SSV-60 (Commodore SSV).

Almost 80 number plates are for sale all referencing Holden products in one way or another, with the official auction to begin at midday November 18. While the number plates (and heritage cars) are housed at Manheim in Altona, Victoria, this auction will be online.
