202

possibly for sale in coming months

I have a 1974 HQ holden station wagon that has been sitting in a garage for a number of years. My mother has now passed away and the car needs to be moved, ie sold.

Problem is, what is a 1974 HQ wagon worth these days. The body is straight with very little, if any rust. A new engine has been fitted and has done less than 2500 km.

Truth of the matter is the car has not been started in years, Without any pics, what is the car worth any ideas?

regards

John

HG Paint Codes

Hi All,

Really struggling to find the colour for this code 585-9953 on a HG Wagon, can anyone help? I know that 585 denotes a Dulon Solid colour, but I can't find any info on the 9953 numbers.
Any help at all would be appreciated!

Thanks

starter motor issues...

ok my 202 has a starter motor issue which is sending me batty..
1: it sometimes starts first click. no worries at all.
2: sometimes it throws out and just clunks without engaging.
3: sometimes it just clicks and I have to tap it.
4: sometimes it just spins without engaging.
5: sometimes it will start 1st click, but if its cold and doesnt stay idling, itll just click and not start.
usually one of these things happen when theres a problem, not every symptom in the book at different times.

161 head on blue 202 block

Putting a 161 head on blue 202 head
Do you have to drill out the water jackets in the block to suit the 161 head (use 161 head gasket as a template)

What push rods do you use

Do you have to do anything else

Red 202 fan clutch and shroud setup

I want to put a shroud and fan clutch on my warm red 202 HZ van which has a V8 radiator. I can get a new shroud and new fan clutch but

1) I can't work out where the shroud is supposed to mount (think I'm missing brackets on the radiator)

2) can't find the blades for sale anywhere (to attach to fan clutch)

My current fan is 45mm (17.5") with a 2.5" spacer which I don't believe is stock and won't fit with the shroud (which I believe is 17" max?)

I'm located in Coburg, if anyone in Melbourne has parts for sales I'd appreciate it.

Anyone know what this Holden 6 exhaust manifold came from?

Found a photo online of a Holden 6 exhaust manifold, i've not seen this type before. Looks like it's a 12 port but it's a different type to what is on a blue 202. Thanks

Parts for 202 Electronic Distributor

Hey all,
Just in the process of upgrading my HQ red 202 to an electronic distributor to get rid of the points. I already have the distributor and coil, so the parts i need to know are types of plugs, leads, dissy cap and rotor that are best suited for the upgrade?
What are best simple and straight forward parts suited for a plain and stock red 202 with no fancy carbs or manifolds or anything on it.
Cheers

Trimatic slip in first gear in drive only not L

Hi can someone advise me before I go to a tranny specialist's and spend money that I may not have too.

I dont have any specialized tooling, just regular, and Jack's ect in my home garage.

Basically I brought an old hz 6 cylinder kingswood that had been sitting around for years unused. I hooked back up the fuel tank and replaced the master cylinder, bled the brakes and now the car runs and stops.

If I take of in D the tranny will slip in first gear only but if I put it in L and take of it is fine.

Any ideas i might be able to try?

Thanks
