Craig Lowndes is currently caretaking the Holden TribUTE 2010 VE Series II SSV Redline Ute but that will all change when the competition winner is announced

It was way back in 1951, long before Holden abandoned manufacturing in Australia, when its first Ute was introduced. And now, 70 years later, GM Holden AfterSales is celebrating this milestone by offering customers the opportunity to win the TribUTE Ute shown here.

The TribUTE is a 2010 VE Series II SSV Redline Ute that has been re-powered with a Chevrolet Performance 6.2 litre, 386kW/525hpLS3 V8 engine, and heavily refurbished with Holden Genuine and ACDelco Parts.

It also runs on an uprated suspension, and is fitted with front and rear cross-drilled Brembo brakes and is shod with some impressive 508mm (20-inch) wheels.

With a body finessed through the Holden Certified Collision Repair program, the TribUTE is going to become a collector level example of this popular model.

“The TribUTE is going to be a fabulous prize for the lucky winner,” said three-times Supercars Champion and seven-times Bathurst winner, Craig Lowndes.

“There’s so much interest from motoring enthusiasts regarding iconic vehicles, and the TribUTE absolutely fits the bill.  Preserving and upgrading these legendary models with genuine parts is definitely the way to go.”

There’s one-month left to enter the draw to win the unique TribUTE. To enter, customers need to have their Holden serviced at a Holden Certified Service outlet.

GM Trade Club customers can also enter the competition by purchasing a minimum of 20-litres of ACDelco Oil during the promotional period from their GM Trade Parts Dealer.

The TribUTE promotion highlights GM Holden AfterSales on-going commitment to support the 1.6 million Holden vehicles still on the road today, but to be no more as Holden abandoned the badge in 2017 when the last vehicle a Holden Commodore VFII Redline (manual) rolled off the Elizabeth line at 10.45am (Adelaide time), 20 October 2017.

It ended 69 years of Holden’s Lion badge being a part of the fabric of Australian manufacturing, from the very first Holden 48-215 built at the Fishermans Bend Vic production line on 29 November 1948.

For a chance to win the TribUTE, you will need to book a service at one of the more than 200 Authorised Holden Certified Service outlets across Australia and more than 50 throughout New Zealand.

Entries for the TribUTE competition close June 30 2021, so get your skates on. Terms and conditions are visible at: https://acdelco.com.au/wp-content/uploads/FullTCs_Holden-TribUTE-Promotion.pdf
