The HG was the third and final facelift of Holden's HK/HT series and was introduced in July 1970, largely to coincide with the introduction of the new Tri-matic automatic transmission. Apart from a new grille, the remaining bodywork was shared with the HK/HT models and all the same trim levels, including Belmont, Kingswood, Premier and Brougham, were offered for sale. Holden had an extensive list of six and eight-cylinder engines on offer, ranging from the 130-cid six through to the 350-cid V8, along with no less than six different transmission types, with the three-speed Tri-matic replacing the old two-speed Powerglide . Production of the last of the original shape was short-lived and the HG was replaced by the all-new HQ in 1972, making it very hard to locate good original examples, particularly in the more desirable manual Premier Wagons guise.
