Take a look at this one-off beauty! A 1971 HQ GTS Monaro coupe in striking Covert Beige with Olive Green roebuck vinyl interior and dark brown vinyl roof.
What a standout combination! You actually won't see another like it because this is the only one GMH ever built.
Believed to be a dealer promotional vehicle, this early build HQ GTS Coupe has had a meticulous ground up nut and bolt restoration with less than 1,000 kilometres on the clock since the completion of the resto.
The GTS runs the all matching numbers fully rebuilt 253 V8 with Trimatic T-Bar auto transmission and 2.78 ratio LSD diff.
Built at the GMH Melbourne Plant and sold through Melville Motors Pty Ltd in Perth, the car comes with it's original log books and owners manual, plus some receipts. The original owner sold the car on to the second owner in 1974 and the current owner/restorer has owned this special GTS for the past 4 years.
Coupes are now few on the ground and the HQ model is the most sought after of the 2 door series. The current owner/restorer has lavished well over $100,000 to bring this car up to better than showroom condition with a ground up nut and bolt restoration completed in 2020. This included blue printing and balancing the matching numbers 253 motor, rebuilding the gearbox and diff, plus fitting a full stainless exhaust front to back painted in ceramic coated high temp black paint so as to look stock. The current owner has fitted factory power steering to compliment the drivability of this stunning cruiser.
The whole restoration is documented with photos and receipts. Of course everything has been checked, recalibrated, rebuilt so that it all works perfectly. The gauges have been recalibrated. The steering column has been refurbished with new bearings. The indicator switch assembly and steering wheel have been refurbished. The window winders, wiring loom are all restored. The heater core has been replaced. Nothing and we mean nothing has been left to chance. This is an A-grade restoration as seen on the best high-end Aussie muscle, and fittingly lavished on this ultra rare and super desirable Monaro GTS Coupe.
This special HQ comes with a Holden Historical Services letter of Verification noting the car was originally sold through Melville Motors in Perth and confirms the driveline combination and build specification.
