G'day this is pic of me 1976 HJ GTS Monaro, It is the real deal, manual 308 that sound the way a v8 should sound.

LOVELY car mate. But didnt Monaros only have 2 doors? I was sure the 4 door was just a 'GTS'.

ok, i stand corrected, there are hj gts monaro 4 door sedans. from what i read here http://www.uniquecar... the car above would have come out with a single headlight front. my uncle upgraded his hq sedan to twin headlight two weeks after he bought it in 71, so to me headlight counts are not a big deal as they were easy to change. Also from what ive googled there are a few other cars with the monaro badge the same as the car above. You (I) learn something everyday. again, great MONARO mate, keep her out of the rain.

Well that is good to hear, haha.

I always give my mate sh!t about his GTS. He calls it the Monaro, and we give him crap and tell him it's just a Kingswood - sheesh, talk about touchy, takes the bait hook line and sinker, every time, lol.

His too is a bloody nice car though, I have a few pics of it in my shed or just [http://gallery.oldho...|CLICK HERE] to check it out.

Yeah, Monaro or not, GTS or Kinga, still bloody nice cars.

The 4 doors were also sold as and badged as 'Monaros'. This has caused much anger and girly name calling from coupe owners refering to our cars as "Mingswoods".

Spoilers (front and rear) were also options on the GTS 4 door. The dual headlight front could have been optioned or changed by the dealer (a bit of that went on) or a subsequent owner.

'just' as in 'one' thing rather than 'two' things, like i said in the first reply, lovely car, i wouldnt downrate this car just because it didnt have a monaro badge on it.

As for the chev commodore thing, since you bring up the commy name, notice that gts commodores were not monaros, even while the monaro was being made. they were 'just' a GTS.

I just followed the link (great read) But it says they were never BADGED as a MONARO. So the badges on this one were added?
Not flaming ya buddy, its a beautiful car.

Only the HZ was not badged a Monaro.
The Monaro badge came back into the range in 73 with the HQ 4 door.
The badges on the HJ pictured are where they were from the factory.
The 4 headlight front is not.
The only HJ Monaro with a 4 headlight front was the LS
Also my HJ has the front and rear spoilers optioned

car looks to spec from pic except having the twin headlight front when they only had single.
if it was a genuine buy i.e. you paid top dollar for a 100% hj gts then you may be sad by that hey anyone would.
but in my opinion that's a sweet ride man.

Thank for everything, Yeah i knew the the HJs GTS 4d come out with the single headlight, but even though it is a sweet ride. It does have all right numbers under the hood.
