Description

This lot is no longer available

The all-new HQ series introduced in July 1971 was a milestone car for General Motors Holden, boasting brand new styling, unitary construction, new suspension, brakes and interiors. The model range was greatly expanded and performance enthusiasts were well catered for with the Monaro, available in either two or four-door (from early 1973 on) guise for the first time. The HQ was the final Monaro offered with the option of the Chevrolet-sourced 350-cid V8, churning out a thumping 275bhp and 360lb/ft of torque, with a choice of M41 Turbo Hydra-Matic 400 auto transmission or the much less commonly specified heavy-duty fully-synchro four-speed manual. Boasting steel sports wheels, well equipped premium interior and revised exterior styling, the Monaro GTS package was available at the hefty price of $4,635 when a base Kingswood was nearly $2,000 cheaper. With the modern Monaro helping revive interest in the classic models of the 1960s and 1970s, muscle cars like the HQ Monaro GTS 350 are becoming increasingly sought after.
