Description

This lot is no longer available

The HX series release of 1976 saw only minor updates to the exterior, notably the grille and badge work, although base specification utilities and panel vans retained the HJ grill (except Sandman which got HX Kingswood frontal treatment).

When the HX was released, government emissions controls had been tightened and Holden needed to make significant changes to their engines. This resulted in the deletion of the 2.85 litre straight-six. In addition, a Kingswood panel van was introduced to the range of commercial vehicle offerings. The HX Sandman introduced a large 'Sandman' logo on the tailgate and stripes down the sides.

During the course of the HX series, front bucket seats were adopted as standard equipment for Kingswood-badged vehicles.
