HR 186S Special

Hi Guys - Last weekend I was at the GMH car day and
there was about a dozen HR's. Great to see rare NASCO
bits - through to a barn find 186S HR Special. I had
done up my 186 HR & upgraded it to a 186S many years
ago but could never find photos of what the carbie to
accelerator pedal looked like.

Attached is a photo of original 186S linkage set up
for the WW Stromberg two barrel.

Upcoming Holden Premier auction Perth

Hi,
I am considering bidding on the HK in this auction but suspect it may be out of my price range.
What do you guys think would be a reasonable value for a car like this. Looking at it in the metal it is not perfect but very very nice. link below.
Thanks,
Stevo

HR Radio

Hi T - Here is the HR Special Air Chief Radio photo.

Doesn't look as good as the 1966 sales brochure.

The tranny is however not connected to the 2 Farad
voltage capacitor, amp and sub behind the premier arm
rest (stereos in the glove box!).

HR Air Chief Radio

Hi T

For the Radio Page you should put in the HR Air chief
Radio image from page 15 of the 1966 HR Sales brochure
which I posted a few weeks ago.

Did you want me to take a photo of my HR Special air
chief - which looks identical to the advert image with
the HR special silver dash?

HR Brake Boosters

The only number I can find on an old PBR brake booster I have is a patent number 260550.

Does anyone know how to tell if it is out of a HR as I want to keep it all HR?

A HR Brake Booster (PBR) has a Holden replacement part number of 7433728

But is that stamped on the early HR factory boosters although likely PBR made.
