1984 Holden Kingswood Utility WB 4.2 petrol from Australia and New Zealand
A head turner
Nothing major. Fuel pump @ 200,000,clutch @ 300,000. Usual hoses and belts over time.
Put a Statesman Caprice front end on in '88, installed a 5 speed Toyota Seca transmission in '95. Total strip back and re-spray in '96 (Red). Skirts and brushed aluminium mags the only other extras. No roll bars or roo bars for this baby. A very neat, clean, square vehicle. A little heavy on the juice, but the 5 speed and tuned extractors improve fuel consumption on long trips of which this vehicle does many.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
