HK Wagon to Monaro

Dear friends,

OK, this sounds stupid but what the hell...I am from Sri Lanka and I found an abandoned hearse (Holden HK). I know a top panel beater guy. I am thinking of making a HK monaro. Yes, you read it right.

I figured out that the front doors are longer in the monaro and B-pillar (yes, it has none) to rearwards are totally different.

But what about the front? Aren't they the same?

And does the HK wagon too have a semi-chassis in the front like the HX sedan and wagon? Or is it unibody?

Secondly, is there a workshop manual for HK/HT/HG in PDF available?

Thank you

Nice find. If it were me? I'd do it up as a hearse, much more interesting than a Monaro. A lot less work too. You'll spend $10,000's looking for Monaro trims, fittings, stainless moulds, glass etc.. Any pics?

Was too dark to take pics at that time and a bit far away for a second visit. It's a station wagon and not modified to be a hearse in any way, it was just used as a hearse. A HD wagon is also there. To be honest, it is my brother who wants to do this. I would like a station wagon but he hates them. Just wants a coupe so I'm only doing him a favor by checking the possibility. I wish he grows up to like them :-)

Anything's possible. A lot of work for another Monaro though. I'd still be interested in the hearse side of things, even though it wasn't stretched. There's an HR getting around, ex-hearse that's not stretched, and here's an FC heasrse, not stretched:

what you should do is convince him to turn the HD into a coupe as that would be a one off much more unique and you keep the HK

Turn the wagon into a two door nomad style.
Remove the rear doors, lengthen the front doors, and fill in the rear side windows!

I'm fairly certain the hk-g range has a full chassis but if I'm wrong I'm sure someone will advise you.
Good luck with the project.
