Its one of my mates. He recently finished restoring it, was original police car. He's a copper himself and drove HZs when he first joined, has told/taught me a bit about them, that I didn't know. Somewhere I have a few pics of it, when he dropped in at my place, when I locate them I'll post them up. Cheers Drew

HZ Kingswood sedan, HQ Kingswood Wagon, HJ Ute, HZ Sedan, HX ute and WB Stato, what to work on or cruise in today?

I know this was posted a long time ago but I stumbled across this car on the Lincoln Autoclub page where they did a full write up on it.

Wondering if anybody knows if the ex SA police Kingswoods came out with Dual Exhausts from the factory? I have just bought one and would eventually like to restore it to factory specs. I noticed it has Dual exhausts and was wondering if that is how they where?

It doesn’t this one has a single from what I have seen from other photos but every other ex police car I have seen on the road has always had dual exhausts. Was hoping to ask the man himself if it was just personal preference to fit a single or if that’s how the police ordered them.

Its a beauty would love to see some more pics. My wife was there but I was working that day so couldnt go, always wondered about the legalities of doing something like that, and finding all the bits and pieces needed but I spose being a copper himself he'd have all the necessary contacts

Yep, He got the correct radio in the car from Theberton Barracks (A Radio section mate there) got a few old sirens and lights from Marla Bore station! Geez lucky bugger! A couple months back he drove it over to Canberra for some car show. Their is some legalities with the signage, he did tell me, I think he has to cover some of it uo when driving unless he's going thru Makkas!! HA ha Drew

I can recall the "candy cars" of the SA highway patrol.... even seeing the old Valiant on the side-bar evokes memories. The non-striped cars were the ones to worry about for us young ratbags at the time. Park that one next to a HJ-Z ambulance and that would be a picture straight out of the past.

If your project doesn't work, look for the part you didn't think was important.

I just put a pic up mate. I'm in SA, you as well? I remember the HZ cop cars and Chargers, just got my license then, cops "oh no another canary!" Was better when they first went to Commodores you could pick them with the square headlights. Those were the days. Drew

I'd say it's a mesh one Lindsay. It's just how the sun is shining on it. I used to work at a place that made them when I was a pimply teenager. I might've had my hands on this one at the factory.....
