1972 HQ GTS Monaro 308 4 speed - One Off! ... (SOLD)

Take a look at this one-off beauty! A super rare factory 308 V8 and M21 4 speed manual 1972 HQ GTS Monaro coupe in striking Baroda Silver Mk. II and Medium Blue trim.

What A Car!!!

So rare in fact, that you actually won't see another like it because this is the ONLY ONE GMH ever built!

This stunning HQ GTS Coupe has had a meticulous ground up nut and bolt restoration with 23 miles on the clock since the completion of the resto.

Built at the GMH Melbourne Plant and sold through Sydney Atkinson Motors, Ltd in Perth, the car runs the '74 installed GMH NASCO replacement 308 V8, M21 high performance 4 speed manual gearbox and 3.36:1 Salisbury LSD diff.

Coupes are now few on the ground and the HQ model is the most sought after of the 2 door series. The current owner/fanatic 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. (Note that the ID plates have not been disturbed since they were fitted by GMH in 1972 at the factory.)

The restoration included blue printing and balancing the 308 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 GTS.

The whole restoration is documented with photos and receipts. The car features ultra rare NOS Medium Blue trim. 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 three owner HQ comes with a Holden Historical Services letter of Verification confirming the driveline combination and build specification. AMCS's recommendation; given the huge interest in coupes and specifically HQ GTS models - grab this beauty while you still can!

Located in Perth, WA for your inspection. If you wish AMCS will gladly arrange a video tour of the car using WhatsApp and of course there is no issue with door to door freight delivery anywhere in Australia or New Zealand. (Ref: 5615)
