1967 Holden HR Special 186 Red Motor from Australia and New Zealand
My dream car
Muck in the fuel tank has blocked the carby a few times and jammed open the needle and seat.
I put a new fan in it and tore the radiator to bits.
Best car ever. Wouldn't trade it for any other car on earth, unless it was another HR.
Handling is a bit of a bugger, but I'm going to counter that with heavy duty shockies, lowered springs and possibly more hardcore sway bars.
It's only a Special, but it's got all the Premier body trims and the interior's pretty sweet.
It has a twin barrel Stromberg on it which I probably wouldn't recommend. It may add extra power, but I've had many a problem with it. The fact that I don't have a choke cable also makes it a mission to start in the morning.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
