Nicely-presented HG has a few updates

It's no exaggeration to say Holden's Monaro changed our motoring landscape. Mark Higgins, in a piece on the series in 2018, had this to say: 

"But the Monaro was much more than just a car and for that we must thank then GM-H Managing Director Max Wilson for his foresight.

"It was a paradigm change for Australian-made cars. Spearheaded by the Bathurst-bred GTS 327 the Monaro invigorated the Holden badge with excitement and sportiness, blending European flair with American muscle thanks to the 5.4-litre V8 engine. A first for the brand."

Now a lot of people have been faithfully reproducing what came out of the factory, there are plenty of variations out there and this 1971 HG is an example. 

Under the bonnet is what the seller describes as a 336 stroker V8, matched to a T5 transmission. It's also running updated brakes – ventilated discs on the front and HQ stud patttern. 

That said, at a glance it looks very much like a factory car. 

It's located in WA and is on the market for $128,888
