1967 Holden HR Premier 179S from Australia and New Zealand
This is a car that seriously puts cars today to shame!
There was some rust in the door panels and in the front quarter panel.
The car needed new wheels as the mags had rusted.
There were some parts missing from the engine like the windscreen washer bottle. I have been able to replace most parts now.
The seats were badly worn. They have been re-upholstered.
The car was originally an S model with a twin barrel carburettor. It now has a twin Stromberg carburettor.
Extractors were standard on the S model.
The manual gearbox is a modification. It the gearbox out of a VH V8 commodore.
This combination makes it very quick.
It has been lowered with sway bars which help it to corner much better.
This is an awesome car - quick, reliable, easy to work on, and plenty of grunt when you know how to tune carburettors.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
