HIGHLIGHTS: – HZ Panel van restored as Sandman Tribute – Rebuilt, matching numbers 253ci V8 engine – Factory four speed manual transmission – Panama Green paintwork with Sandman decals – Black interior with bucket seats – Aftermarket stereo system – Period 14” Hot Wire wheels

This 1977 Holden HZ Panel Van has been restored and transformed into a Sandman tribute. The car comes to us as part of a large private collection. It was purchased from a gent who owned it for 11 years and restored the van during his ownership.

Although not a genuine Sandman, the van was very well optioned from day one. The car was built in GM’s Adelaide plant and left the Holden Factory with an L32 code 253ci V8 engine and M20 four speed manual transmission. The car was finished in code 30518 Jasmine Yellow with code 63V buckskin interior.

During the restoration the can was stripped down and professionally repainted in the period correct HZ colour of Panama Green. The factory style black outs were applied to the body before the addition of the Sandman decals. There are two side windows in either side of the van to allow for some light in the back. The chrome bumpers were either refinished or replaced at the same time. The car sits on a set of period 14” Hot Wire wheels.

Open the door and you will find that the interior has been refinished to a factory style but now in black. The front features bucket seats and centre console with manual floor shifter poking through. The steering wheel is a GTS item and there is a full length headliner up top. For tunes while cruising there is an aftermarket head unit and CD player. The sides of the back are neatly trimmed with LED lights attached and the floor of the back is fitted with black carpet.

Under the bonnet lives the original, 253ci V8 engine that has been fully rebuilt prior to the current ownership. The engine is paired to the factory four speed manual transmission. The exhaust system is all new and the brakes and suspension are all factory items.

These Holden panel vans are always extremely popular and although this isn’t a genuine Sandman it certainly has the look of one, has been restored in a great colour combo and has a factory V8 and manual transmission. Be sure to register and bid if you would like to see this one parked in your garage.
