Description

This lot is no longer available

Holden introduced the HK range in 1968, with all-new bodywork that was both longer, wider and offered a great deal more interior space. The model line-up was overhauled, with the entry level Belmont joined by the Kingswood and upmarket Premier, while two new variants - the Monaro fastback coupe and the luxury Brougham - were added in July 1968. Two commercials, the utility and panel van, were available, the latter only sold in Belmont trim level. This meant a bench seat in Sadlon vinyl upholstery and fewer add-ons. The HK commercials boasted a much longer, wider and deeper load area and were marketed as being both bigger and stronger all round. The suspension was beefed up, the brakes were improved with dual circuits and 14-inch wheels also made for a work vehicle that was up for the toughest jobs. Holden's option list for the HK was extensive to say the least - buyers could specify any one of three six-cylinder engines or the 5-litre V8, numerous transmissions, a limited-slip diff, heavy-duty radiator, battery and air cleaner, not to mention creature comforts like air conditioning.
