The Holden HT is a range of automobiles built by the Iron Lion between May 1969 and July 1970.

Replacing the outgoing Holden HK, the HT brought with it new changes such as a redesigned grille, new taillights and a wider rear window.

Customers could have their HT in a number of different body styles that comprised a four-door sedan, five-door wagon, two-door coupe, two-door ute or a two-door panel van.

Power came from a range of different motors that included a 2.6lt and 3.0lt inline six-cylinder or a 4.1lt, 5.0lt or 5.7lt V8.

These donks sent power to the HTs rear wheels via either a three or four-speed manual or a two-speed automatic transmission.

There were several different models within the HT range, and these included the Belmont, Kingswood, Premier and Monaro.

This particular HT is a ’70 Premier with the 4.1lt V8 and two-speed automatic transmission.

According to the seller, the vehicle has travelled an original 85,265 miles from new and the motor has been reconditioned and converted to unleaded.

The seller adds that the vehicle has been well looked after and has been owned by the same family since 1980.

The HT Premier is $30,000 and anyone interested in this Aussie classic can view the full listing here.
