    SV90 Info

    I know I have asked this question many times over the past few years but I am yet to get a qualified answer and I haven't come across another original unit to inspect. I am being a bit anal but I would like to know if the engine side if the grill on the SV90 is painted with Ruby Red or is it like the standard VQ and painted silver?

    Hope there is someone out their who can help.

    Saw a new SV90 grille for sale at Eagers Holden around 10 or more years ago in Townsville and it was Ruby Red.

    Tony Ireland Townsville still have the old parts list folder. Give them a ring and ask. It SHOULD have a different part number to Statesman because of the colour

    It is the engine side of the grille that I am not sure of.

    As far as I have seen it’s ruby red on both sides. My car was painted when I got it, all the ones I have seen are painted both sides. Haven’t seen a nos one specifically for SV90 sorry. Hsv does have a part number 13c-191901 ( statesman grille asm ) same as VQ 5000i so not colour specific. I think it was just a in house paint for ordered models, would be my guess, I’ll see if I can find anything more regarding it, glad to hear you still have the car.
    Sent you a email mate.

    Thanks Daniel for getting back on the grille colour. As you have seen more than one and the original grille in the car was also, I will decree it is Ruby Red on Both sides and go that way.
    BTW Yes I still have the old girl and managed to pick up a trophy last year at Ballarat All GM Day for Best Stock VN-VQ but sadly I think that I have to sell either the SV90 or the VE Red Line Calais V for other commitments.
