1977 Holden HX Kingswood Worked 186 from Australia and New Zealand
Takes my breath away
Some of the bushes in the suspension wore out after 27 years, Bench seat worn, replaced with Japanese bucket seats out of a Mitz sigma.
This HX Holden is fully done up at a cost of about $17,000. The 186 in it puts out over 200 BHP with only a 350 Holley, Has about 450 thou lift on the cam though. Excellent on gas with a celica 5 speed. This thing dose over 200 kh/h easy.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Maybe is a project or hobby. Besides some people like classics more than plastic. Not everybody wants to be part of the boreodore club. I say good on the original poster for reviving a classic.

I had an HX, 1977 model, T-bar auto 202 motor, two-tone (white top, maroon bottom). Miss it heaps.
