1972 Holden HQ SS Sedan for sale

The Holden HQ SS was launched to create a budget style entry into the Holden performance car range. It was based on the bottom of the line Belmont Sedan but with a 253ci V8 and a 4 speed manual transmission jammed into it. The cars were visually identifiable by the SS stripes and being one of three colours, Lettuce Alone (green), Ultra Violet or in this case, Infra Red.

Holden initially planned to produce 1600 of the cars but demand quickly showed that they under shot the mark by a mile and ordered another 1200 to be produced in a second run. Even then, demand was high and people were lucky to get their hands on one new from the dealer.

This particular example was one of the first production run of cars. Built in GHM’s Pagewood plant in Sydney rolling off the production line on the 18 of August, 1972 before being sold new by Muirs Motors in Ashfield in the same month. The way the car is presented today is the same way it would have rolled off the line, ordered in Infra Red with Black Houndstooth trim. Holden had an internal nickname of “Bluey” for Infra Red cars and this is what appears on the production report…. doesn’t get much more Aussie than that.

The car has been restored to a high standard all round, the bodywork is in fantastic condition and the paintwork is silky smooth. The chrome all round has been refinished and presents beautifully. The car sits on an original set of wheels with tyres that have been red striped to add that pop! The car runs a rebuilt N.O.M 253ci V8 and is restored to look original under the bonnet. As they all were from factory, the engine is backed by a M20 4 speed manual gearbox. All of the suspension and brake components have been reconditioned during the resto.

Inside the car has the correct Black with houndstooth style trim with bucket seats and correct GTS dash with unique SS steering wheel. The interior is in exception shape with very little sign of wear since it was refurbished. The car is registered in the HQ SS registry and comes with the production report from Holden Historical Services confirming it as a true SS. Prices of these car have climbed steeply over the last few years with no signs of dropping off. Grab yourself one of these great Aussie classics before they become out of reach.
