1969 HT Holden

HT Holden

HT Monaro

HT Monaro

Introduced the locally designed Aussie V8 – in 4.2 and 5.0 litre versions – to strong demand. It featured design changes such as wraparound rear light clusters, wider track, improved suspension, new instrument panel and wiper system and offered a 14-model selection (Monaro demand exceeded supply), a choice of five engines, four gearboxes, and a lengthy list of options, including a limited slip differential, Superlift shock absorbers, power steering, power windows, bucket seats, and air conditioning.

The 6 cylinder engine lineup remained unchanged, but Holden dumped the imported 5 litre 307 in favour of its two locally manufactured V8’s, the 253 and 308. The Chev 350 was retained for the GTS350.

The manual transmission incorporated a fully synchromesh 3 speed column shift rather than the earlier “find and grind” type used in earlier models.

    I have a very early built HT premier with a factory 307 chev. Body No 14, built in Adelaide and used as a press release vehicle @ Warrick Farm raceway.
    Can you please advise, how many chev built HT prems were made and what the value of these rare cars would be worth today.
    Mines Monza Blue, with twilight blue interior with material inserts. Very nice combo.

    My son and i have been discussing rebuilding a car that he could then use as his 1st whenhe gets his license.
    I have found a HT 1969 kingswood that has been sitting in a garage for over 15 years. He does have a lot of spare parts and has already done all the suspenion.
    Basiclly the car needs a respray all parts that do have rust there are new pieces for, the enginge would obviously need a rebiuld aswell.

    He has thrown out a price that i am unsure of what the actual value would be. Can anybody help.
