Dubbed Creme de la Prem by Survivor Car Australia magazine and featured in their Collector's Issue No. 29, this stunning Survivor Paragon Blue/Grecian White HK Premier 186 and 2 speed Powerglide auto has covered a mere 45,851 miles in its 51 years on the road.
Purchased originally by a Mrs. R.P. Bald from Motors in Launceston, Tasmania, the car was optioned with mudflaps, driver's window weather shield, tow bar and Air Chief push button AM radio with auxiliary parcel shelf speaker. The HK Premier remained in the care of the original owner and then her son until 2014 and was last registered in 1993. The car was then sold to the current Tassie owner in 2014 who had been looking for a Premier as his Dad had also had one back in the day.
The car features all original acrylic paint with no rust or damage and a spectacular light blue interior that is as in good showroom condition. Everything still works like clock work and the HK Prem comes with the original sales brochure and also a horse shoe that was put under the floor matt for good luck by Mrs. Bald and has helped guide this special car through its time on the Tasmanian roads.
HK Premiers are thin on the ground at the best of times but finding a Survivor like this one is like finding a needle in a haystack. A perfect addition to any serious Holden collection and a fine example of Aussie motoring history. Launceston, Tasmania car. (Ref. 5256)
