According to Wikipedia, for 1971-1985 "Statesman" was a separate make, it was named "Holden Statesman" only in the 90s when they reused that name...
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Statesman_(automobile)
The other Holden Statesman that we have of that era should be renamed then I guess?

So Statesman Caprice, but I do not know the two-letter code...

Wasn;t this a copy of a big Mazda (so Origin Japan, built in Australia)? Or was it just the other way around?

I was thinking of the Mazda Roadpacer, but it was based on the Holden Premier [HJ]: http://mrec.rotary.net.nz/articles/roadpacer.htm (and I was too lazy to check before I wrote...).

What are you guys talking about? Isn't this a made-for-AMERICA Chevrolet Caprice?

No, it seems to be an Australian one, i.e. Holden (Statesman in this case)

Definitely an Aussie Holden? Statesman Caprice - but I have never heard them calles Statesman as a seperate make. Even the Aussie "Redbook" guide for valuation of used vehicles lists them as Holdens not Stateman as a seperate make

I check the site you suggested, it is being used as marque under the manufacturer of GM Holden Ltd. However, should we listed as Holden Statesman Caprice? Comments?

Holden is the company which made them, like Peugeot make CitroŽns or BMW makes the Mini ...

There are already several others listed as Holden Statesman, and as far as I know they are always referred to as Holden Statesman in Australia. I have never heard them referred to as a seperate make. /vehicles.php?make=holden&model=statesman

Well, the info on Wikipedia seemed have some references though... It is like for that Valiant Charger case, with or without Chrysler...

Statesman is a type of Holden as a Chevy Caprice or Chevy Nova is each a type Chevy.

It has been marketed as a seperate marque on occasion over the decades of its availability.

No mention of Holden in these brochures: http://www.uniquecarsandparts.com.au/brochures_holden_hq_statesman.htm (except that they are listed under Holden on that site)
The way it is mentioned on Wikipedia it really seem to have been used as separate marque on 70s models :??: (but named Holden Statesman for the more recent model of the 90s)

There were four versions of the Holden Statesman in the H series. Statesman(very basic bench seats six cylinder engine boring and obviously not popular), Statesman Deville, Statesman Caprice which is in the picture and a Statesman SLE. The Statesman was droped after the end of the HQ series leaving the Statesman Deville and the Statesman Caprice. The Statesman SLE was used to rid Holden of the remaining bodies at the end of the HZ run much like Ford with the XC Cobra. With the re release of the long wheel base luxury cars in the late 80's there was the Holden Statesman and the Holden Caprice as two stand alone vehicles The Caprice was no longer a Statesman.
I belive the vehicle in the picture to be a HX as the HJ's grill was one colour giving it a finer look and the HZ wiper arm's were Black the ones in the photo appear to be silver/grey there is also two distinct lines on the indicator lense suggesting chrome strips which were droped at the end of the HX run
