HK to HG Holden sedans may be overshadowed by their more glamorous cousins, the Monaro series, but they nevertheless attract a big following.

As Cliff Chambers noted in a recent value assessment for Unique Cars mag, "Once Holden built a car to cope with V8 power, any advantage held by the Falcon or Chrysler Valiant was gone.

"Fifty years later, HK-HG Holdens remain practical, competent cars and even without the optional V8 their values are increasing."

The numbers we publsihed at the time are now out of date, but the general principle still applies.

This 1968 example has clearly had a major rebuild, boasting a 350 Chev V8 claiming around 300hp at the wheels, plus a TH350 auto transmission and nine-inch diff. 

The Premier front gives it a little presence, while the overall effect is close to stock with a few hints that there is some muscle under the bonnet.

This one is in western Sydney and is being handled by Australian Muscle Car Sales. It's priced at $55,000.
