Lakeside Classic: Bob Jane's 1971 Holden HQ Monaro GTS 350

September 20, 2017

Yes, you are looking at my dream car, but brought up to early 1970's race-specifications. The General Motors Holden weapon of choice was the diminutive Torana at the time, so just a handful of Monaros were tasked with track work.

The HQ Series HQ was built from Jul 1971 to Oct 1974. This HQ coupe was built in 1971. It has a 5,735cc V8 engine.
