Holden Utility/Van/One-Tonne: HQ, HJ, HX, HZ, WB

The market for commercial-use Holdens from the 1970s remains very active, with many of these vehicles still hard at work and ignoring their advancing years.

Six-cylinder utilities, usually running a three-speed column manual transmission and showing signs of recurrent rust, will cost $10-12,000.

Adding a V8 can almost double their value. While a One Tonne six-cylinder HQ-WB probably ranks as the least-desirable Holden of its era, lots are being preserved and they are already worth considerably more than a 1990s Calais.

V8 Tonners will often have been glammed-up for show use, as have HQ-HZ styleside V8s and many of the surviving V8 vans.

Any of these can be found in very good condition for $25,000.

HQ-WB Utiilty Six $14,785 [24] 

HQ-HZ Utility V8 $21,395 [18]

One Tonne Six $9660 [23] 

HQ-WB One Tonne V8 $21,665 [27]

HQ-HZ Van V8 $21,390 [14]
