Holden’s final series of long-wheelbase luxury models to be marketed under the Statesman brand was the WB Statesman Caprice introduced in 1980. As with previous Statesmans, GMH did not use the Holden name in the badging or the official sales literature. The WB had a six-light body, with a longer, squared-off roofline designed by GMH’s Chief Stylist, Leo Pruneau. The styling of the WB Statesman was a compromise between achieving a fresh appearance and minimising the cost of redesign, by using panels from the antecedent HZ model. Mid-term ‘Series II’ revisions came in 1983 before production ceased in 1984 when GMH announced they were vacating the luxury and commercial vehicle fields to build more variations of the lighter, smaller Commodore. As a result, well kept used WB Statesman Caprice models were changing hands in the mid-1980s for more than their final list price. This particular example is in pristine condition throughout. Maintained perfectly and featuring all original interior, running gear, factory rustproofed and rust free body. Comes with all known service history and log books. July 1984 built, this metallic brown (cork) over beige (fawn) velour trim car is in perfect running order. Powered by Holden’s 5.0L V8, it features electric windows, power steering, air conditioning and cruise control…Call Len on 0411 819 643 to inspect in Sydney.
