Holden Monaros – Get a Piece of Australian History Today

on

The Holden Monaro was billed as Australia’s first fully home-grown sports coupe and was launched in 1968. The Holden Monaro had universal appeal and the shape was a result of a brand new Holden design which was purely based on the muscle cars of the United States of America.

The pillarless two-door design was a new model concept for Australia and came with a choice of 3 different styles. Holden catered for the people who aspired to own a sporty coupe, be it the standard, GTS and GTS 327 with a choice of 6 engines. Each model had a wide body, flared wheel arches and a sweeping roofiine.

The standard Monaro was powered by a 3.05 litre six cylinder engine coupled with a column shift 3 speed manual. Choices in motors ranged from a higher spec 186S and the imported 5.0 litre 307 V8. The GTS 327 Monaro dominated the race tracks and became an instant hit with the Australian public.
