Rare 1978 HZ GTS (Monaro) in Palais White with Buckskin/Houndstooth trim and sought after factory L31 5 litre V8, M21 4 speed manual gearbox, with 3:36 diff combo. Also factory optioned with power steering and four wheel disc brakes.
This was the last of the second generation Monaros (by HZ times known simply as the GTS) and is relatively rare with only an estimated 1,438 built prior to the model replacement in December, 1979 with the VB Commodore.
Current long term owner has just finished a 7 year quality nut and bolt restoration. Every part on this car is new - NOS or reconditioned. Perfect original body/chassis and tags. Running a QT coded 308 engine with original M21 4 speed and 3:36 diff.
Restored with originality in mind but a couple of sensible upgrades including electronic ignition, intake and extractors. Running 15 inch GTS wheels. Everything works as it should including the original radio.
This was the first Holden to be fitted with the RTS Radial Tuned Suspension. According to Modern Motor magazine - "At last! The Holden handles." Controversially it was to be the last GTS Monaro for more than 20 years but no Monaro badge is to be found anywhere on this model.
Comes with Holden Historical Services verification letter. Inspection is by appointment in MacKay, QLD car. (Ref. 5293)
