V8 rolling project

Holden's HZ may not have been the last of the big Kingswoods, had the company not been so single-minded with the introduction of the smaller Commodore VB.

As we pointed out in a feature on the series: "Holden famously considered continuing the full-size Kingswood line past the HZ and we can only wonder what we would have ended up with. Though the Commodore proved to be a worthy car in its own right, the big brothers that started life in 1971 as the HQ series had really developed into a well-sorted car. It seemed such a shame to cut them off in their prime."

See that feature, which has a focus on wagons, here.

This 1979 example in WA is running a 308 (5.0lt) V8 and T400 three-speed auto, and has a few of add-ons. They include the Premier nose cone with its quad lamps, GTS dash and SL/R seats. 

The Perth-based dealer says it needs some panel work, but is a registered runner in its home state. It's priced at $29,888.
