Product Description: 1:18 Scale Holden VE Commodore SS - NSW Police Highway Patrol Car - Heron White

Limited Edition Number: To be announced

Product Specifications: Die-cast model car with detailed interior, fully opening parts and police modifications

About This Product:

Holden were arguably at the peak of their powers when the iconic Australian car manufacturer launched their brand new VE Commodore platform and it was inevitable that the new model would ultimately find itself being utilised by police forces and emergency services in various states across the country.

New South Wales was one of the states which used the VE platform for its police vehicle fleet during the models lifetime and we’re excited to present this NSW Police Highway Patrol car which uses our existing VE Commodore tooling. It includes various updates and refinements making it a closer representation of a police car which you can read more about below.

Interestingly, most states of Australia which used the VE as part of their fleet during this time had varying differences with how they turned the model into a Police car based on their individual standards or requirements. Most notably, the roof mounted light bar was one of the main visible distinguishing features that was often different between states and the lighting rig we have opted to use for this model is the one consistent with use by the NSW Police force on this car during the period.

Compared to our VE SS V series road car model in this scale, this Police variant includes a significant range of modifications to the model tooling specifications to bring it in line with what you would expect to see in a police car.

These modifications include the previously mentioned roof mounted light bar with additional roof antennas, round police spotlights mounted on the front bumper, radar, detailed police interior including computer, UHF radio, dash camera system and upgrades to the boot including a rear drawer with light system and fire extinguisher.

Another notable visual difference between this model and our SS V road car release is the different SS wheels and of course, the recognisable police exterior signage and decoration.

Seemingly, there were many numerous car colours used by the NSW Police force and other states across the VE’s lifespan decked out in police trim. We have opted to use the Heron White body exterior colour for our first police car release for a traditional look with more colours to follow in the future.

We’re very excited to be adding the VE police car to our growing range of road based models with this edition scheduled to be produced in 1:18 scale die-cast with fully opening parts with high detail in an exclusive limited edition with an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

Pre-Order Model Cars At Your Local Stockist:

If a model car is marked as a future release on our website then please enquire about placing a pre-order with your local model car / hobby stockist as soon as possible.

Register Your Interest For Model Cars Here On Our Website:

You can also register your interest for future model car releases online with us to be notified when they are released.

To do this you need to navigate to the product page of the specific model you're interested in.

Once you're on the model product page, please click on the black 'Register Your Interest' tab which should appear on the right hand side of your screen on each future release product page on our website, enter your email in the relevant section and submit the form.

When the model arrives in stock you will receive an advanced email notification from us letting you know that it is in stock with a link to complete and pay for your order while stock lasts.

Please ensure your email address is right before submitting the register your interest form. Unfortunately a confirmation email isn't sent when you register your interest for models on our website, the only time the system will email you about that specific model will be when it arrives in stock.

We offer this option due to the amount of time models generally take to produce (usually 6-18 months) so you're not out of pocket until the model actually arrives.

For Future Release Prints, Books + Other Products:

Depending on the type of product or brand, we also offer a paid pre-order option on our website.

If a product is available for paid pre-order on our website then you will be able to add it to your cart and purchase it like any normal in stock item.

Details about the pre-order will be listed at the top of the product description if it’s available and when we expect it to arrive in our warehouse.

A paid pre-order option will only ever be available on our website for products that aren’t models - we usually use this feature for prints, books and other non-model products.

We offer the paid pre-order option online with us for these products because we can predict production and shipping times more accurately and are usually much faster than the model cars to produce.

Of course, if you wish to order these items from your local stockist, please make an enquiry with them.

For All In Stock Products:

If a product is in stock then it should now be available at your local Authentic Collectables stockist or you can shop online directly with us and it will usually be shipped on the next business day unless otherwise stated or it's a holiday period.

 

Product images used on our website may be of a real car photo, model car photo, mock-up, render, illustration, prototype or production sample and are used for display purposes only.

Please be mindful that the vast majority of products available from us are produced in limited edition numbers and will only be available while stocks last which is why it is very important to pre-order at a stockist (or here online where possible - see above) or register your interest for future release models.
