In May 1969, the HK Monaro was replaced by the facelifted HT Monaro. The GTS 327 became the GTS 350 with the replacement of the Chevrolet 327 V8 by the 300 hp (224 kW) Chevrolet 350 V8. As the Monaro was Holdens main car in Series Production racing, this was primarily in response to Ford who had introduced the XW Falcon GTHO Phase I in 1969. There was also an automatic version of the GTS 350 introduced which used a lower power version of the 350 V8 engine coupled to a 2-speed Powerglide transmission. The HT Monaro GTS350 was successful in Series Production racing. The Holden Dealer Team was formed in 1969 by longtime Ford Works Team boss Harry Firth with the team using the GTS350 in competition. The HDT entered three Monaros in the 1969 Hardie-Ferodo 500 the lead car driven by Colin Bond and Tony Roberts winning from 1968 winners Bruce McPhee and Barry Mulholland who had switched to driving a Falcon GTHO. Coming home third in the Dealer Teams 3rd Monaro was Des West and Bathurst rookie Peter Brock. In January 1970, Bond and Roberts would win the Rothmans 12 Hour Series Production race at Surfers Paradise driving their HDT Holden Monaro. Norm Beechey upgraded to a HT GTS350 and would win the 1970 Australian Touring Car Championship, Holdens first ever ATCC championship success.
Muscle Car Warehouse is excited to present to you this very special 1969 Holden HT Monaro GTS 350 which is build number 83 out of the Sydney plant and believed to have been first owned by a couple from Kingswood in the west of Sydney, then exchanging hands in the early eighties to the second owner of thirty five years and then onto the current owner approximately four years ago. With approximately 550 units made to meet homologation requirements to be able to participate in the Hardie Ferodo 500 in October of the same year. This example was built in September of 1969 and finished in Platinum Metallic (567-10974) with Black trim (10X). The paintwork was redone about 25 years ago in acrylic and stood the test of time and is only showing very minor defects but still very presentable. All of the mouldings, badges and other bright work such as the bumpers are all genuine and true to the car and are all in great condition. As you would expect this Monaro still houses its genuine 100% matching number engine (which was freshened up several years ago) with all of its genuine components still intact and once again all true to this car. Original date coded heads, intake manifold, extremely rare 7029283 Quadrajet carburettor and the genuine homologation upgraded air cleaner with extra breathing holes and even the trap door sump which is unique to the HT 350 cars. Original exhaust manifolds with complete factory correct exhaust systems with special quad tips. All the fuel lines, ignition leads, special clips are all there! Even the compliance plates have never been removed. The starter motor, original fan with the special 350 fan spacer and original special radiator. All of the engine bay is completely correct and was achieved by using some NOS parts.
The gearbox is also the date code correct 350 high capacity bearing Saginaw with the genuine bell housing and the correct rare hydraulic clutch parts and correct shifter assembly. Following on from there is the special Violet coloured tailshaft connecting to the genuine 10 bolt Chevy type differential with 3.08 Gears LSD and original radius rods. Note that the gearbox, clutch assembly, differential, front end including brakes and all tyres have also been recently freshened up. Other unique features on the Monaro are the 25 gallon long range fuel tank for endurance racing and the correct slotted rims to enhance brake cooling as part of the homologation process unique and exclusive to the HT GTS 350 Monaro model. With all of its special body features such as the unique floor pressings to accommodate the 25 gallon tank and Saginaw differential, unique holesin the firewall and holes to accommodate the 25 gallon tank and lastly the small diameter rear spring front bushed this car will easily pass any authenticity inspection.
The interior has been refurbished to original specifications with countless NOS items used including NOS steering wheel, NOS crashpad and NOS centre console inserts amongst other parts once again to ensure this car is 100% correct. The Monaro also still retains all its original glass except for the front windscreen which has been replaced at some stage. Even still sporting its original Lucas brand headlights.
This Monaro has never been unregistered in its 52 year life and is currently on NSW Historic registration which is not transferable and is now available for the fussiest of buyers so do not hesitate to contact Muscle Car Warehouse for any further information on this very rare piece of Australian muscle car history
