1967 Holden HR Premier Sedan – Tennyson Turquoise

The HR Holden replaced the previously released HD when sales started to dwindle in 1966. The HR featured what appeared to be mild body changes compared to its predecessor, but in actual fact they were reasonably significant. The roof line was reworked and nearly all of the exterior panels had adjustments made to them to give the new HR a sleeker and (then) modern profile. In addition to this the front featured a new grille and squared off headlights with ‘tower type’ lights at the back.

The performance of the HR initially was bolstered due to an enlarged version of the ‘red engine’ with higher compression ratios, a new version of the twin carburettor X2 engine pumped out 109 kW (145 bhp). Soon after its release, the 186S engine became available as an option and while it still featured similar output credentials as the X2 engine, the new option delivered its power smoothly in comparison to the X2 version and it also featured Holden’s first automatic choke. The HR can also be credited as one of the cars that introduced new ‘safety’ packages to the Australian car market. Six months after its initial launch, a safety upgrade was included which saw seat belts added to the front, windscreen washers, reversing lights and sun visors.
The HR is a significant, classic Australian road car and as such, we have worked very hard to create a model that is worthy of this popular car. With separate hand brake lines on the undercarriage and extra engine bay wiring including the hood release cable and brake lines – the detailed mechanical features of this model are really quite impressive. That combined with the high attention to detail, fully opening parts and of course, the gorgeous colour combination of Tennyson Turquoise with white roof and Bone interior makes this an incredible model and one that will compliment our previous HR releases nicely in collections. Overall this is a remarkable replica of a classic Australian car.

1970 Holden HG Monaro GTS350 – Electra Blue

1:18 Diecast Model

1970 Holden HG Monaro GTS350 – Electra Blue

This 1:18 scale model has been released and will be in store early next week.

The model number is A73404 and it is priced at $230.

We only have 1 available and you can buy it here.

Many would argue the Holden Monaro is one of Australia’s greatest muscle cars that has ever been produced. Beginning with the HK series which was released in 1968, the HG was the third incarnation of the Monaro nameplate and was released in 1970. The HG Monaro was in fact the last Monaro released in Australia as part of the first generation of releases and was the last of the original coupe design and body shell.

Mechanically, there weren’t many differences at all compared to the HG and the previously released HT version but there were exterior differences which were notable. The grille had a face lift as did the taillights but it was the exterior decorations – particularly on the GTS350 which stood out the most. Gone were the bonnet stripes which were features on the past two editions which were replaced by the paint outs on the bonnet scoops. The stripes found their way from the bonnet on the HK and HT versions and were featured on the sides of the HG. The “sidewinder” stripes were a little more subtle compared to the previous versions, running from the front of the car just underneath the windows and ending at the rear pillar. As with all of the first generation Monaro’s, the black striping contrasting against the beautiful colour schemes is one of the Monaro’s best features.

This 1:18 Scale replica of the Electra Blue HG Monaro GTS350 is yet another stunning example of a collectable model car. Produced in diecast and featuring fully opening parts, highly detailed engine bay, interior, undercarriage and exceptionally crafted wheels and chromed sections, it’s a model fit for any Australian Muscle Car enthusiast.
