Value guide: V8 Holden HK, HT & HG

The classic car market has had its ups and downs over the years, but HK, HT and HG Holdens have seen a meteoric rise over the last decade. Whether that will continue is up for debate, however the shut-down local manufacturing by Holden in 2017 suggests that if nothing else the numbers will hold up.

Star car - Holden HK-HG Brougham

That Holden's Brougham borrowed its name-tag from Cadillac tells the story - a Holden for buyers with luxury car ambitions. Sharing the standard Holden wheelbase, it had a longer body courtesy of extended rear sheetmetal. With V8 power and a staggering range of extras thrown in it was, in effect, a Premier with the lot, and then some. It was great value for money offering true-blue Aussies what they loved  space, plenty of lazy power and rear-wheel drive to tow their other rolling stock around Oz. And heaps of creature comforts. That's still true today.
