The legendary Holden Monaro - starting with the 1968 HK GTS 327 that won Bathurst on its first attempt, to the even more brutal HT & HG GTS 350, followed by the beautiful HQ Monaro GTS & LS in 1971. Holden sent the Monaro out with a bang with the final HX LE. of 1976 - no longer a muscle car but a fine luxury GT. Engines include the 186S straight six and Chevrolet small block V8s in sizes from the 307 only available with Powerglide, to the 327 finally the legendary 350 that was still available in the HQ series. The first Holden V8s of 308 and 253 cubic inches replaced the 307 and 327 Chev motors in the 1969 HT model.
Holden performed minor miracles turning the Vauxhall Viva 4 cylinder into a giant killing Bathurst winner in the GTR XU-1, ably assisted by the brilliant driving of a young Peter Brock. With the LH and LX - Holden retained the Torana name but added it to a larger, locally designed sedan and later, a hatchback. Again - it became a Bathurst winning legend with Holden’s 308 cubic inch V8. The SLR 5000 and A9X created yet another local performance legend.
During its prime Holden exported cars to Japan, South Africa, the Middle East, Indonesia, Malaysia, Fiji, New Zealand, Japan and the West Indian islands of Jamaica, Barbados and Trinidad to name a few
