Holden HD-HR

The gap that once existed between HR Holdens and the less-common HD has disappeared.

HDs by virtue of their scarcity and controversial history probably should sit higher on the collector car totem pole, but there are now enough in the market to meet demand. HD Premiers are still rare and will justify values around $30,000, with HRs $5000 lower.

| Buyer's Guide: Holden HD 1965-66

Surveying specifically for twin-carb X2 and twin-throat 186S engines we found several this time around and certainly not the extreme price gulf there was last year.

| Reader Resto: 1966 Holden HR

An excellent and authentic X2 HD or 186S HR Premier with automatic transmission should make $40,000, with ultra-rare 186S four-speed manuals able to justify $50,000+.

HD $21,015 [14] 

HR $20,170 [35] 

HD Premier $32,415 [9]

HR Premier $21,125 [8] 

HD X2/HR 186S $34,000 [4]
