This stunning and original HT Monaro. Ordered brand new for Les Vagg founder of Les Vagg Holden Sydney.

This car represents an iconic breed of Holden’s famous Monaro’s and a highly collectable Australian muscle car, which can be driven as a daily or put away as a weekend driver, whilst collecting appreciation as an Australian muscle car this proven Gold-plated investment.
This is a must have for the serious collector and the only HT Monaro known to be left in existence painted Warrigal Black.
The vehicle was factory optioned with a 308 Holden V8, coupled to a Power-glide automatic transmission, with dealer fitted Mag wheels. The vehicle was repainted some 15 years ago and today still presents in outstanding condition.
Most dramatic change was a new multi-louvred plastic grille with a raised centre section and Monaro black-outs. The GTS had bold centre bonnet stripes in black or gold, flanked by new bonnet scoops. Beefier two-section tail lights separated by a blacked-out tail panel, thicker side stripes and black sills made the GTS look even sleeker.
Wild new colours included Sebring Orange and Daytona Bronze. A full set of circular instruments replaced the HK’s console-mounted tacho and strip speedo. More contoured bucket seats with optional houndstooth check cloth inserts and a grippier steering wheel were in keeping with the HT’s added refinement and special detailing.
