Untouched GTS Monaro is a rare find

Survivor HT 350 GTS Monaro coming up at Shannons
Time capsule Monaro will get a lot of interest.

Here’s something you won’t find every day – a genuine survivor and one-owner HT Monaro. It’s being offered by Shannons at its upcoming Sydney Spring auction on November 7.

Here’s what the auctioneer has to say about it: With the same family since new, this incredible Holden HT Monaro 350 GTS has never been modified or restored, remaining just as it left the factory back in 1969.

Finished in the factory colour of Verdoro Green with gold stripes and white vinyl upholstery, the Holden was first owned by the proprietor of the Wagga Speed Shop before passing (along with the business) to his son in 1979.

The Monaro was proudly displayed at the Speed Shop, admired by customers but rarely driven until 2010, when the owner decided to get the family’s pride and joy back on the road.

The Holden was duly recommissioned although the vendor’s father sadly passed away without the chance to drive the car again.

Subsequently inherited by the original owner’s granddaughter and put back into storage for a further five years, the Holden has spent its entire life in Wagga Wagga and is showing just 82,890km from new.

Retaining all the original major components, including the matching 350-cid V8, four-speed manual transmission and Salisbury diff, the Holden even has the original hubcaps and headlamp covers.

The body appears relatively straight, apart from some dents, scrapes and blemishes to the duco, with good chrome and the interior has been remarkably well preserved for a car now over 45 years old.

The seats, carpets, headliner and door trims are all showing well, with a lovely patina, and the car even retains the original AM radio/tape deck (still in working order).

The overall impression is that of a genuinely untouched car, one of the last remaining unrestored examples of this Aussie Bathurst legend. Last registered in April 1986, the Monaro comes with the all-important books confirming the matching number status and details of the original owner.

The sale estimate is $130,000-150,000.
