Commodore headlights2

  1. 1. >>>Click Here For More Commodore Headlights<<< >>>Click Here For More Commodore Headlights<<< Australians have been partial to the Holden Commodore for well over 30 yearsdue to its outstanding specifications in safety and performance with each newer versionoutshining its past version.From the first representative of the Holden Commodore with the introduction of the VBversion, the entire Australia appreciated that this brand-spanking new vehicle was in aclass by itself. The earliest generation Commodore was constructed on an Opel version.Diminutive than the outgoing HZ Kingswood model, the car was constructed to be morefuel efficient after the oil scare of the 1970’s. The Commodore presented a fresh angularstyle with the VB Commodore headlights attaining a square look as opposed to the usualcircular lights of the former HQ and HZ models. Additionally, the VB HoldenCommodore left from regular car models by being longer and rectangular.
  2. 2. The next model in the series of Commodore was the VC, but there actually were not asmany varying changes to this model from its ancestor Apparently, the VC Commodoreheadlights and tail lights had not been altered.. The singular visual change to the VC wasthe more fitting grille and repositioned front badge.When Commodore came out with its VH model, there were alterations in its design fromits predecessors.Progressions were done to the front guards, and the VH version also hada novel designed headlights and tail lights.The construction alterations for the VHCommodore gave a much longer and wider design than its previous versions. The VHCommodore presented tail lights that were constructed more like the Mercedes Benz witha smooth, slatted look, breaking from its earlier models.The VK Commodore experienced many changes than its previous versions.Salessurpassed expectations with the VK Commodore due to a 6 window glass house, whichmade it seem larger.The grille became a three horizontal panel style. The VKCommodore headlights continued as exactly as the VH version, along with its clearcorner lamps. This version saw amendments in the tail lights that were followed up withhorizontal lines going across each of the lamps.On the VL Commodore, its conversions were mainly witnessed by its front end of thevehicle. The VL Commodore beheld changes in the headlights by having them superblyrounded. The tail lights did not convert much, with changes solely being based on themodel. The VL Berlina set forth dark tinted tail lights, and the VL Calais tail lightsaltered to white stripes being across the upper half of each tail light..The second generation Commodore created a whole new version, never seen before ofthe Holden, beginning with the VN Commodore. The floor plan of the VN was widenedand stretched but still remained based on the equivalent Opel model. The VN Commodore lights were considerablyaltered from what it was before in previous models. Formerly featuring the initial amberturn signals, these were soon altered with the now more prevalentprevious models, theamber turn signals were changed No longer did Commodore add amber turn signals,
  3. 3. these were done away with, and clear headlight were used instead, and also with itsturning signals.The tail light treatment on the VN Commodore also experienced a hugemakeover with these tail lights being of a boxier design and featuring slightly differenttint or features depending on the model variant. One exemplification is the VN CalaisCommodore tail lights that had white stripes going across the centre of its tail lights. Thiswhite stripes was carried forward from the VL Commodore tail lights. The VNCommodore was undeniably the most popular produced by Holden. With the comingagain to the larger car design that was dropped for the first generation, Holden had nowreturned to the leader board with Australia’s most popular family car. VN Commodorewas such a achievement that Holden stuck close to its design when it came out with theVP Commodore.Only minute cosmetic changes were apparent as Holden had placed thebulk of upgrade funds into investing on improving the execution and efficiency of the VPCommodore engine range but also making betterments to the chassis. Exterior changesincluded slightly redesigned VP Commodore headlights. The VP Commodore headlightswere made longer on the corner lamps to provide a longer look that also gave the VPCommodore a more aggressive look. The VP Commodores tail lights were alsoimproved, however still retained the same overall look as the VN Commodore. In theimprovement, the VP Commodore tail lights received chrome highlights on the Calaismodel, and the Berlina now had grey stripes. The VR Commodore when made public wasa big step forward for Holden. Around 80% of the sheet metal had been replaced from theVP Commodore previous model. Most interesting were the changes to the front and rearends with the VR Commodore headlights and tail lights were wholeheartedlyredesigned.The headlights were replaced a simple rounder look and maintained the clearcorner lamps, and the tail lights also assumed the same treatment with a rounding of theVR Commodore tail lights. The tail lights were split into two pieces and were nicelycreated to be added to the boot lid instead.The VS Commodore hardly changed related design of the VR due to it being such asuccess on the market. The only definite major adjustment was that the VS Commodorestail lights changed to clear indicator lamps, but there was no cosmetic alterations to itsheadlights.What a distinction the clear indicator lamps made for the VS Commodore, forit turned into a sleeker look than its prior versions.The arrival of the VT Commodore was enourmous, and Holden had once again come upwith a victor,keeping its number one status over the ailing Ford Falcon.The VTCommodore headlights kept the softer round fashion introduced with the VSCommodore, and the VT Commodore tail lights gave prominence to a circular design tocompliment the rounder and wider rear end of the VT Commodore.There were twoseparate designs of the VT Commodore tail lights with the series 2 model being madewith clear indicator lamps.. Since the VT Commodore was so well liked and well built,the VX Commodore underwent very few changes.Like the VT Commodore, the VXCommodores tail lights came with two distinct creations, one of them being a teardropdesign.An innovation for Holden was to progress to the headlamps on sportier modelswith a black reflector to make way for a more alive look.The Berlina and Calais modelsof the VX Commodore were not endowed the teardrop design headlights and as asubstitute had a sharpened corner as opposed to the rounder fashion of the teardroplamps. The VX Commodore tail lights witnessed the centre garnish of the prior VT
  4. 4. Commodore removed for base models, however the more sophisiticated Berlina andCalais models still retained the centre garnish.With the release of the Monaro model,Holden upgraded the tail lights on such models. The Monaro model displayed a threecircle lamp design that was well liked by VT and VX Commodore car owners. The VYCommodore was a tremendous improvement in the third series of Commodores. Theexterior was absolutely redesigned and improved with more angular facets in contrast tothe rounder look of the VT and VX Commdores. The VY Commodores headlightsadopted an angular design, giving it a more sharper look. The VY Commodoresheadlights on base models kept with the teardrop, however once again more grander orsportier models did not have this attribute.Holden adopted a new look with heavy modelsby adding projector lamps to the VY Commodores headlights.This added toCommodores modernized appearance, but it was also added to surpass European luxurycars that were presently Holdens top competitors. The centre garnish was removed thetail light design from every model, and Holden decided upon a triangular lookinstead.Once again various models got slightly different tail light designs. The VZCommodore was the last of the third generation of Commodores, but it was very muchthe same as the VY Commodore, but its front end was cosmetically redone, and theteardrop shaped headlights were no longer on.The projector lamp kept in place on thegrander models. The tail lights were also improved with the Calais mainly receiving adarker tint on the bottom half of the tail light.Holden did not manufacture a newer Commodore until 1997, and it was called the VECommodore.The VE Commodore was an expensive project, for its price cost Holden $1billion to make. The VE Commodore was wholly produced in Australia, which had nothappened ever with other models.The VE Commodore was the most bold lookingCommodore to date with a wider stance, flared guards, and the front axle was moved tothe right to the front of the VE Commodore as a component of Holden’s intentions tocreate a 50/50 weight distribution. Much like the VZ Commodore, the VE Commodoresheadlights were angular but were larger than the VZ Commodores. Holdens sportiermodels had been changed to black reflectors and projector lamps were added to them.The VE Commodore tail lights went through visible changes with its luxury models byembracing an European like tail lights; and sportier models, like the SSV, stayed with theblack reflector tail lights and centre lamp, but surrounded by chrome.Once more, thesebecame a popular enhancement with owners of base model VE Commodores.Moving forward for Holden, the HSV models of the VE Commodore had a totallydistinctive rear end sheet metal and tail light design.Most likely, this was to have HSV beof a more European design.
