Holden Statesman HQ-WB

It comes as no surprise that early Statesman models have been surging in value and owners of pre-WB cars are holding back while waiting to see if prices top out. Ultra-rare and totally missing from this year’s sample were HQ De Villes with factory-fitted 350 cubic inch (5.7-litre) engines. Some of these have previously reached $60,000; similar to the money asked for HJ-HX Caprice versions in exceptional condition.

The market showed no interest however and forced vendors back into the $40,000s. That said, an outstanding Statesman is still well worth owning. Neglected HQ-HZs and older restorations needing more work will sell for less than $20,000, as do reasonable examples of the big-bodied WB. Caprice WBs in excellent condition can hit $30,000.
