HQ Monaro 6 cylinder model

Hi,
I am helping a relative sell a '72 HQ Monaro LS that came from the factory with a 202 and column auto, GTS interior and GTS wheels fitted. Can any help with the production numbers for the '72 HQ Monaro by engine size?
I have read that there are only a few HQ Monaros left in the original 6 cylinder configuration?
Is this correct and does this have an impact on price?
Thanks.

While the six makes it rare, that may not equate to being desirable.

You may have a longer wait for the right buyer to come along.

Holdenpaedia, they're the brakes Mate.

it's probably true that a vast majority of the 6s were changed to V8s over the years..but they would be quite easy to put back as 6's if that was seen as desirable...not having the original engine number is not the end of the world as so many older cars had reconditioned engines...as T points out it would be reasonably rare but that doesn't equate to higher value/desirability...it's like having a Standard vs Premier..not many Standards survived...so rare but not higher in value

This article a few years old provides an interesting perspective on a 6cyl Monaro...suggests that authenticity and documented history can yield a better price than modified cars....https://www.tradeuni...
