Information ref HZ cassette player

Can any one provide info on where the cassette player as an option was fitted to the HZ GTS.

IN the Brochures I have the radio is a white needle in both the Premier and the GTS I'm wondering if like the HX LE Coupe if this optioned was requested was the centre console exchanged for one similar to the coupe and the Statesman Caprice so that the cassette player would be fitted into the space that this console was used for in those models

Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated bearing in mine that I only want restore my car to factory specs/authorised options

Regards

it's not listed as an option in the 77 sales brochure? so maybe it wasn't available from factory..I had an HZ caprice and the radio/cassette was a bit unusual...the cassette player as shown above had 4 separate speakers 2 in the footwell and 2 in the parcel shelf and the amfm radio had one speaker in the dash and one in the parcel shelf so stereo was front and rear and you could have the radio and tape going at the same time...

Hi A big thank you guys for responding appreciate your effort.
Today my son who's interstate sent through a Holden Philips HZ Installation Instructions for Radio/Stereo cassette Player GM-H Part No 9946275 (Pic attached). Also I have attached pic of what I believe is the actual radio which also happens to be Yellow needle. The actual cassette only pic is from a HJ Accessories Brochure PA201 which was dated Oct 1977 the same time period of the production of HZ GTS Now really confused but would appreciate any more ideas theory's comments

Thanks

the one in the brochure is a 4 track - they were fitted in some earlier Statesman's up to HX but not HZ...I'm certain a HZ would not have been offered with a 4 track as it was a seldom used technology at the time....looking at the install guide I'd say you are right the yellow needle in dash unit looks to be the right kind...I do not believe it would be the separate type like fitted to the Caprice because that had a different console including a raised panel next to the passenger leg...

Andrew would know
The yellow needle is a giveaway the same as the dash
HQ were red ?
HJ were white (mine were lol)
So Would it be fair to say HX and HZ both had yellow ?????
Andrew,
How many H models have ya owned over the years 🤔
