Looks like a bogo fleet model that are now ultra rare ( as are the HBs) Rubber mats ,one sun visor( t'other optional as was a heater) no brightwork window surrounds or side strip and other stuff like opening rear side windows which Deluxe HAs had but not HBs, SL GTs yes but not Stock or Deluxe HBs on UK spec ones.
my Deluxe HB didnt have a temp guage at first .
many Vauxhalls from Luton being sent to this very town before being shipped abroad, some to New Zealand.
I believe HA Vivas were sent as knock down kits to Australia, before being built inhouse by Holden( aka the Torana HB and on,they sent coals back to Newcastle,so to speak the 4 door being developed in The Antipodes I believe.
similarly kits were sent to Canada to be assembled as Epic Envoys, including a unique GT specced HB Estate( or Wagon in transatlantic parlance ?)
