Holden HK-HG V8/Premier/Brougham - market review
The quality of what's on offer has been a problem for Premiers though the Brougham offerings have been right up there in recent times.
Usually reliable sources this time failed to produce any exceptional HK-HG V8 Premiers.
More disappointing was that cars on offer were generally of ordinary quality and below the $25-30,000 that one of these should generate.
Equally unexpected was an above average crop of Broughams with some asking prices above $60,000.
Typical cars have a way to go before reaching those heights but $35,000 is realistic.
Among the Kingswoods sampled was a White Hot HT model, with the correct 253 V8, at $35,000.
HK-HG utes and panel vans are hard to find, particularly those that were originally built with V8 engines, as opposed to receiving transplants later in life.
HK-HG V8 $13,255 
HK Premier V8 $25,000 
HT-HG Premier V8 $26.780 
HK-HG Brougham $35,915 
Values from 2015-16. Concours cars will fetch a premium.
