Description

This lot is no longer available

Holden introduced the HK range in 1968 with all-new bodywork that was both longer and wider and offered a great deal more interior room. The model line-up was overhauled, with the base model Belmont joined by the Kingswood and upmarket Premier while two new models were added in July 1968 - the Monaro sports coupe and the luxury Brougham. Pitched squarely at Ford's Fairlane, the flagship Brougham had unique styling touches to differentiate it from lesser Holdens and came with the 307-cid Chevrolet-sourced V8 and Powerglide transmission as standard, along with power front disc brakes and power steering. Inside, the Brougham boasted Brocade upholstery, a heater/demister unit and quality carpeting while the vinyl roof was the finishing touch. Priced at $3,855 when new, the Brougham sold in limited numbers and few survive today in decent condition.
