1979 Holden HZ SL 202 from Australia and New Zealand
A comfortable cruiser
Nothing has gone wrong with it yet, I only just bought it a few days ago, but it had a few problems I've fixed.
The guy that owned it before had cranked the idle speed up way too high, and it had a crappy sports steering wheel which I replaced with the original.
There's many other small things to mention.
After my last car, a '69 Beetle, this car is pure luxury.
It was originally a cop car for the Hobart police.
The interior is in very good condition, no cracks in the dash. the motor starts and runs like a dream, but the transmission is starting to play up a little, it take a second or so to engage drive when changing from reverse.
The body is fairly good, but showing rust around the corners of the panels, I'm getting that cut out ASAP.
The motor is quite lazy, but its not too bad. could do with a bit more power, but I don't want to make it even more thirsty.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
