Now for sale this fully restored '75 HJ Sandman Ute, available for inspection in Perth.
Before the HOLDEN SANDMAN UTE, a Ute was just a Ute. It was a load-hauler that you threw ladders and half empty paint tins into, along with the cement mixer and wheelbarrow.
With the Sandman, Holden created a whole new genre, something we are quite used to now with HSV's Maloo and FPV's Pursuit Ute.
But in the early 1970s this was something pretty special. All of a sudden, you could buy a Ute painted in wild colours and dressed up with mag wheels, stripes and a GTS dash. This was a Ute that was built to enjoy the fun stuff in life like carrying you and a mate off for a dirt bike weekend, a surfing carnival or a fishing expedition.
The Ute as a pure work horse was no more. This was specialty transport targeting the younger market that saw a whole new use for the once humble Ute.
For sale is a stunning example of the 1975 HJ Holden Sandman Ute in Absinth Yellow with black trim. Running the very sought after all matching numbers 308 5 litre V8 and M21 4 speed manual gearbox, this Sandman Ute was rotisserie restored in 2014 and has been in a Holden Collection since.
Originally sold through E.C. Cameron & Sons P/L in Orange, NSW, this Sandman Ute was ordered based on the Kingswood specification rather than the more common Belmont variety. Power steering has been added to the car at the time of the restoration.
The Sandman Ute comes with a Holden Historical Services letter of Authenticity, an owners manual and service booklet, plus a warranty card, accessories booklet and engine starting procedure tag. Indicating 372,966 km from new with less than 1,000 kilometres since the restoration.
Available for inspection with the owner in Perth, WA. (Ref. 5987)
