1978 Holden Kingswood HZ 3.3 Litre In-line six cylinder from Australia and New Zealand
Tough reliable runner, and the last of the real Holdens!
The engine blew at 184000, and I exchanged the blown one for a reconditioned unit built for gas.
Transmission has a tendency to sit in neutral if you put the boot in, but that's probably due to it never been worked on.
Bolt on brake caliper fell off on a dirt road one evening. Found it, but it was like finding a needle in a haystack!
Ever since the motor was done, it's more reliable, doesn't overheat, and tranny doesn't play up as much.
Looks better inside now since I put a Statesman dash in it.
But the back seat is worn and squeaks all the time.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
