Presenting the HOLY GRAIL of the second generation Holden Monaro.
You are looking at an absolute ONE-OFF '73 HQ GTS Monaro Coupe, factory specified with the 350 Chevrolet V8 and 4 speed Muncie gearbox, and special ordered in Warrigal Black with Doeskin trim. A magnificent example of the HQ coupe, which many believe to be the finest looking motor car ever made in Australia.
This special one of a kind Monaro, believed to be the only 350 4 speed coupe ever made in factory Black, was originally sold through Suttons Motors, Petersham, NSW and was used by the original Canberra owner for daily transport and some motor sport events, and went on to live in the pristine dry air of the ACT for over 40 years.
Recently refreshed with new exterior paint, all chrome work redone and all molds polished, with detailed undercarriage, the GTS retains it's original interior trim except for the carpet and seat belts and has covered a genuine 63,880 miles from new. The boot is also unrestored and features the original tool kit and Grand Rallye original spare tyre. And the compliance plates are all day one and have never been removed from the car.
According to the Holden Historical Services verification letter, this one off Monaro was a special Colour/Trim variation order. It is indeed rare to find a genuine Monaro GTS Coupe now-a-days let alone a factory ordered Black car with the 350 V8 and 4 speed Muncie gearbox combo.
And to have one survive so well with the period correct carby, distributor, exhaust manifolds, alternator, battery terminals and radiator through to the original Muncie gearbox with genuine linkages, Hurst shifter and bell housing is indeed super rare. Even the centre console retains the unique and rarely seen Muncie-only bump.
We hope that you enjoy the extensive photo gallery of this very special Monaro. Photographer makes no apologies for taking too many pics of this one! It is rare to see such a complete and original example of such a rare car. Currently on display in our Kingsgrove, Sydney showroom. (AMCS Ref: 5689)
