In 1976, a young Policeman on his way home from work as a general duties officer was passing Fair Deal Motors on Church Street, Parramatta in Sydney and spotted a Mustard yellow HQ GTS Monaro for sale. Now after owning this stunning HQ GTS Monaro for nearly 45 years, its time to find a new owner to enjoy this very special survivor HQ.
With only two owners from new, this HQ GTS Monaro was driven daily up until about 1988. It was then shedded while his 5 children were growing up and then in 2010, it was sent to the owners mechanic to get it back on the road. The brakes and radiator were sorted. The oils changed. And since then, it has been driven on the odd occasion locally. All paperwork for the repairs comes with the car.
The HQ GTS is running the matching numbers 253 V8 and the 3 speed Trimatic automatic. Mechanically the car has been maintained to perfection with regular oil changes. The engine is still totally original and has never been rebuilt or modified. The car was resprayed in acrylic in the 1980s and the interior was retrimmed around the same time in velour with yellow piping using the original seats, door cards, hood lining, crash pad etc. The under dash A/C (needing regas), driving lights and Aunger rear window louvre are day two modifications by the owner.
The car has covered a genuine 196,463 klms from new with 70,009 Klms covered by the original owner and then the remaining kilometres by the current owner. The car is an accident and damage free car and is straight and solid and super reliable.
The boot is still fitted with the original boot mat rubber and comes with a genuine spare with period tyre fitted.
This is truly a time capsule HQ Monaro and a perfect way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the release of the HQ Holden.
