The Holden Monaro could easily lay claim to being one of Australia’s most iconic and most beloved cars that has ever been produced. From its inception in 1968, to its modern evolution in 2001, the Monaro has, and always will have a place in the Australian motor enthusiasts heart.
The HQ Monaro was the first model series to make up the second generation of Monaros produced for the Australian market from 1971 to 1977. The new HQ series featured a new body design and was faced with some unfortunate competition from within its own ranks, which some argue hurt its progress at the time. The Statesman luxury sedan was also available with the 350 engine as an option and the replacement of the bigger coupes with the Holden Torana GTR XU-1 as Holden’s favoured machine for Touring Car racing both combined to detract some of the attention away from the Monaro.
In 1973, Holden introduced bonnet and boot lid paint outs to the range in a bid to counter these issues. Some also claim it was purely a move to help avoid consumer confusion between the newly released 4-door Monaro GTS sedan, and the much more humble Kingswood sedan, from which the GTS was based. The bold striping on the bonnet and the boot lid added an iconic element to the HQ Monaro GTS and this particular replica features what is widely considered as the most striking colour combination of Purr Pull with White stripes.
The colour combination and finishing for this model are super impressive. When this is combined with the accurately replicated and highly detailed engine bay, interior, undercarriage, boot and wheels, you get a model that is sure to be a popular addition to collections.
