HOLDEN HQ MONARO
SALAMANCA RED WITH BLACK STRIPES
When the two door Monaro GTS was released to the Australian motoring public in July 1971 it proved incredibly popular, the fourth all new Holden body produced in ten years. With the confidence of almost a quarter of a million of the HQ range already on the road, Holden released the four door GTS version in April 1973. The monocoque construction and all new four-wheel coil spring suspension provided superior ride and handling and delivered a smoother, safer, more elegant car than any previous Holden. The HQ was the largest selling model range to date for Holden and would ensure Holden’s title of Australia’s number one car manufacturer.
Interior is superbly replicated, including dash detail, fabric seat belts, soft vinyl seats and badged GTS steering wheel.
The engine has outstanding detail, like air filter with 350 decal, wire brake lines, rubber hosing and metal bonnet hinges.
