1971 HOLDEN HQ MONARO GTS - $139999
The HQ Monaro Coupe emerged in July of 1971, featuring a completely new body design
over the First Generation ‘K,T,G’ models. Some notable changes were the larger rear
window, squarer rear quarters and integrated taillights into the rear chrome bumper. The HQ
Monaro was available in Base Model, Monaro LS, GTS and GTS 350. While most Base and
LS models received the 173ci and 202ci engines respectively, the GTS came standard with
the 253ci and could be optioned with the 308ci. The Chevrolet sourced 350ci V8 was
reserved for GTS 350 model lines.
This particular example is an HQ Monaro GTS Coupe (80837), built at Sydney’s Pagewood
plant in 1971. Finished in the tags matching ‘Blackwatch Green Metallic’, this colour rarely
appears on coupe examples. While quite understated in its body colour, a set of Streetpro
007 wheels completes the look and provide the quintessential pro street look.
As for the interior, this Monaro presents a black vinyl trim, matching that of the 10X Black
Roebuck trim number. Correct GTS steering wheel and dash are still in place and present
The running gear features a mild 350 chev, mated to a turbo 400 transmission and a 10 bolt
diff in the rear end. This particular mild setup offers for an entertaining driving experience with
the sound and performance to match.
The popularity of Monaros, particular HQs, is always on the rise. Take this opportunity to
secure yours and enjoy the entertainment that comes from this turnkey cruiser.
