1966 HOLDEN HR PREMIER SEDAN - 31,689 MILES SHOWING

The Holden HR range was released in April 1966, replacing the Holden HD series which had been in production since 1965.

In addition to a revised grille, the HR featured a reworked roofline and larger rear window (on the sedans), revised rear lights (on sedans and wagons) and changes to almost all exterior body panels.

Other changes included revised ball joint front suspension, widened track, improved interior trim and woodgrain interior finish for the Premier models.

Six months after the launch of the HR, all models were given a safety upgrade with the addition of front safety belts, windscreen washers, reversing lights, padded sun visors and a shatterproof interior rear view mirror.

This example presents in Landale Gold and Black Vinyl Roof and complimented with smart Astoria Red interior trim.

A very well presented classic Holden, not originally an X2 model, but upgraded to that status when recently restored.

Powered by 3.0 Litre (186ci) 6 cylinder engine, it produced in X2 form, 108Kw and 250Nm of power and torque, delivered to the rear wheels via a 2 speed Power Glide automatic transmission. Performance figures in the 60's suggest 0-100kph in 13.9 secs and a to speed near 155kph.

The current owner has supplied the following information on this example:-

- Landale Gold with Black Vinyl Roof
- Interior Astoria Red
- Factory six seater (Bench Seat) as per the id tag.
- Vehicle extensively restored by owners previous to the current ones – exterior and interior.
- Powerglide Auto
- X2 optioned (not factory and not a X2 engine block) includes X2 badges, carbies, air cleaner, gauge, badging)
- Engine re-conditioned at some point.
- All chrome/stainless has been re-chromed/polished
- Modern stereo system concealed in glovebox with original factory radio installed (non- functioning)
- Customised 14” rims retaining the original hubcap/trim look whilst improving the ride and how the car sits on the road.
- Drives very well

Altogether, a very well presented HR Premier which would be great for classic car events, show & shines and cruises.
