1976 HOLDEN HJ PANEL VAN- $75000

 

The HJ series was introduced in the third quarter of 1974, replacing the legendary HQ series.
The HJ received a facelift, most noted by the squared-off front end and wrap around
indicators. The same warp around treatment was provided to the rear taillights that were
presented in a triangular-like shape. Popular model lines such as Monaro, Kingswood and
Premier were carried over.


This particular example is a Holden HJ Panel Van, leaving GMH’s Melbourne manufacturing
plant in 1976. Since leaving the factory, it has undergone a full nut and bolt rebuild, now wearing a
sedate shade of silver. A series of tasteful modifications have been made to the exterior
including a set of GTS flutes, period correct front bumper overrides and a set of 17inch GTS
Sprint wheels. Most notably, this HJ has received a HJ Statesman front clip conversion
including quad headlights, chrome bumper with rubber impact strip and vertical finned grille
painted black.


The interior presents well with shades of tan vinyl and cloth throughout. The dash cluster has
been upgraded to a HJ/HX GTS round gauge style facia with the addition of wood grain
highlights to complement the tan vinyl and cloth. A GTS style steering wheel looks right at
home in this interior, while an upgraded Pioneer head unit sits in place of the original FM unit.
Additionally, the roof lining has also been replaced from front to rear.


The original running gear has since been replaced with a rebuilt 350ci stroker that now boasts 383ci.
This stout motor is mated to a rebuilt turbo 350 transmission, translating the power to a Sailsbury
3.08 LSD rear end with 3.7 gears. Additionally, disk brakes feature in the rear.

Why not step away from the classic Holden sedans and coupes and stand out from the crowd
with this tastefully modified HJ Panel Van with strong V8 running gear capable of effortless
and enjoyable cruising. Enquire today and make his tough Panel Van yours.
