Ask Smithy Xtra valuing a vintage HSV Senator

Asked by Ross Boyer

I recently retired my black, 215 VS II HSV Senator to the shed after 10 years and 200,000 km. I have never had to put a spanner on it apart from the regular services and it is still all original right down to the cigarette lighter not being used. From what I have heard there are not that many left, so should I keep it as it owes me nothing or just get rid of it before prices go down to nothing?

If you like it, as you clearly do, keep it. It is a relatively rare car and will only get more rare in the future, and the great thing is that it is original. An American collector once told me that you only get one shot at originality, and that’s what you have got. That will come to enhance the value of your car as time goes by. The only thing to remember is that you need to maintain the car even though it’s sitting doing nothing, and drive it regularly. Do not just leave it sitting in the shed; that would just hasten its decline.
