AMA Group Turns Crusty Old Commodore Into ‘Golden Holden’

AMA Group businesses have completed the restoration of a 2002 Holden Commodore, which formed the prize in a ‘caraoke’ competition hosted by the Christian O’Connell Show on Melbourne radio station Gold FM.

Known as the Golden Holden by listeners of the show, the Commodore caught the attention of Adam O’Sullivan, EGM at ACM Parts, when he discovered the competition and quickly offered to procure parts for the car. Stanley’s Body Works, an AMA Group collision repair site in Braybrook, Victoria, was then called upon to restore the Commodore’s body to a better-than-factory finish.

The car arrived at Stanley’s with damaged paintwork, dents, a ruined interior, a taped-on rear view mirror and a thick coating of dust. With ACM Parts supplying the components and Stanley’s Body Works restoring the vehicle, the project was completed in just three weeks.

“It was great to be involved in a project like this that really showcases what the AMA Group is capable of – from sourcing the parts to restoring the vehicle – and working with other key supply partners to finish the whole project off. It was a real team effort,” said O’Sullivan.

The car, which now sports new gold paintwork, leather seats and tinted windows, is now with the competition winner.
