Holden HJ

Like it?

This car is probably the one in the most advanced stage of decay on this blog so far.
While HJs in good condition are worth quite much money today, this example with all its missing parts, rust and bullet holes won't be worth anything anymore.
Probably it has been used for spare parts before being too rotten for that.
Sold in three versions called "Belmont", "Kingswood" and "Premier" plus coupe, wagon and different commercial versions between 1974 and 1976, 176202 HJs were produced.
A properly maintained HJ looks like this Premier:

  1. Hi,
    The model was a "Kingswood" not a "Kingsman". The two-door coupe version was known as a "Monaro"

  2. Hi,
    thanks for the information. I'm not an expert in Australian cars, so I am always thankful for hints like this.
