Former Summernats entrant

The Holden HJ is a series of large-sized, family and commercially oriented vehicles built between October 1974 and June 1976.

Replacing the outgoing HQ, the HJ brought with it mostly cosmetic changes such as a more squared-off front end as well as new wraparound front indicators and a new rear bumper with resigned taillights.

Body styles that customers could purchase their HJs in comprised a four-door sedan, five-door wagon, two-door coupe, two-door ute, two-door van and a two-door cab chassis.

There were a number of different models that the HJ could be had in, and these included the Belmont, Kingswood, Premier and Monaro.

This particular HJ is a ’75 one-tonner and it’s not exactly what you’d call ‘stock-as-a-rock’, actually this HJ has had a myriad of modifications and an interesting history.

For a start, the seller says the vehicle has a worked 253ci bent-eight donk with 500 Holley extractors, B&M quickshift auto, custom paint, custom steel tray and much, much more.

The seller adds that the vehicle has previously taken part in the automotive enthusiast event Summernats.

The ute is $19,500 and anyone interested in this Aussie built tyre-frying machine can view the full listing here
