Holden HJ Monaro GTS Sedan - Absinth Yellow (1974)
Product Code: A72423
Manufacturer: Biante Model Cars
Biante Model Cars are pleased to announce the stunning 1:18 Scale 1974 Holden HJ Monaro GTS Sedan in the exceptional Absinth Yellow colour scheme.
The Holden Monaro is one of those nameplates that sits comfortably at the top of the upper echelon of classic Australian Muscle Car names including the GTHO, Charger and Torana. Such is the popularity of the Monaro nameplate, it still remains as one of the most adored cars in Australian motoring folklore.
The HJ version marked the 5th incarnation of the Monaro series as part of the second generation of Monaro’s released between 1971-77. Released in 1974, the HJ featured a facelift and improved equipment in comparison to the HQ series which preceded it. The front was notably different with it being more squared off than previously seen and the addition of the front indicators which rolled around the front corners of the HJ were an instant point of difference between the new and older model.
The GTS Sedan was also made as a stand alone model which in itself was a major change as it had previously been referred to as the Kingswood in the HQ series. Gone were the bold GTS paint outs and added were the options of front and rear spoilers for the first time.
Also included as part of the GTS package was full instrumentation, high backed bucket seats, blacked out grille and a locally made 308 engine instead of the US-sourced 350 engine which was dropped by Holden due to anti pollution issues.
The HJ was undoubtably a significantly different beast in comparison to the original HK Monaro in terms of appearance and styling but it certainly carried its own as part of the Monaro family. We’re very pleased to present this superbly detailed model with all of the features and finishing you would expect from us of the simply gorgeous Absinth Yellow GTS Sedan.
