Rarely do you see a Bathurst HT GTS 350 Monaro 4 speed come to market. Even rarer to find one this good! Available for inspection at our Sydney Showroom.

The mighty HT Monaro GTS 350. Winner of the 1969 Bathurst 500 on debut and the first Holden and first Australian-made car to win the Australian Touring Car Championship. Under the expert guidance of HDT's Harry Firth, Colin Bond and Tony Roberts triumphed over the Phase 1 GTHO Falcon of Bruce McPhee and Barry Mulholland with a goaty-bearded, 20-something year old Peter Brock and co driver Des West coming in third. And in the hands of Stormin’ Norm Beechey, the HT GTS joined the immortals of Australian motor sport by winning the 1970 ATCC.

The rules of the Bathurst Hardie-Ferodo 500 required that "production vehicles compete in showroom condition" with no modifications. A total of 200 such cars had to be built and sold to the public in order to qualify to race. The street cars had to feature all modifications that the manufacturer was shoe horning into their race cars. So in reality, these special cars were simply street legal race cars.
