Final HSV Grange SV Rolls Off The Assembly Line2
Holden Special Vehicles has wrapped up production for one of its many iconic models. After 20 years of production, the final HSV Grange has rolled off the assembly line.
The HSV Grange has been based upon the long-wheelbase Holden Caprice, itself a derivative of the Holden Commodore. We know it as the Chevrolet Caprice, tasked with police cruiser duty in the United States. The Grange first appeared in the HSV lineup with the VS Series II range in 1996. That car featured more luxurious appointments and a 5.0-liter V8 engine, producing 248 hp, or a 5.7-liter V8, producing 288 hp.
The Grange has never been the most popular of HSVs but has always led a loyal following for those looking for a luxurious, roomy and powerful full-size sedan.
The final HSV Grange SV has been finished in Nitrate Silver, accented by 20-inch, black Rapier wheels, shadow exhaust and other various blacked out trim components. It is one of 50 limited-run Grange SVs.
This final Grange is one of many upcoming “final” builds we will see. Holden will cease production of its Commodore lineup in late 2017. The HSV Gen-F2 lineup will follow suit.

Sad ending to a proud heritage of Australian auto manufacturing. Hopefully won’t be too long before we hear the resounding call to Make Australia Great Again. The globalists vision is anything but Utopian yet we’re all complicit in allowing them to transform our world into a flavorless place.
Oh yeah baby. America just had its say on globalism among many, many other ugly things which are so clearly not what most of the country asked for. It turns out you can’t just ram it down an entire nation’s throat for too long, try as you may. Apparently the vociferous, leftist press really doesn’t speak for the greater percentage of Americans after all. Imagine that? Shame, shame. And Glory Be. God Bless America. Don’t give up, Aussies.
Oh, and don’t let the door hit you in the ass on your way out of our bruised but determined country Miley Cyrus and Ian Summerhalder and Barbara Streisand and all the rest of you clueless egocentric Hollywood clowns who consider yourselves so much more enlightened than the rest of us that you believe you have any right to judge. Off with you. Scat.
