Holden Commodore 1983 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Holden Commodore 1983 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Motoring on

    I WAS the development engineer on the 4.2-litre V8 back then, so I have a soft spot for the engine and I'm happy you have had a good run out of it. The 4.2-litre engine was a sweet-running, smooth little V8 once the four-barrel carburettor was fitted. The easiest and least expensive course, and the one I would recommend, is to rebuild the motor and adapt it to run on unleaded.
