Wanted - HR Holden Station Wagon Tailgate

Hi Old Holdeners,

I've just rescued an HR wagon from life as a rally car. It's got an HD tailgate, rusted and falling apart.

Looking for an HR tailgate.

I have HR parts galore to trade or cash is fine.

Cheers, Mike (QLD)

Ideas on my HR build date? - HR73814M

Hi

Trying to figure out approximately when my car was built. I find it a funny thing today to not be able to trace back to a build date for something as substantial as a car, but then again times were simpler in so many ways back then....

Motor and gearbox have been swapped out. Unknown regarding steering column so won't trust whatever that number says.

Chassis ID is HR73814M so I know it's from Melbourne and I know there were a tad over 250k built in total but not sure when ~74k from Melbourne would put it date wise...

Cheers for any help.

HR wagon seat belt mount position

Hi all,

I'm working on a HR rebuild with my Dad (the original Old Holden guy ;)

We're putting three-point seat belts into the back seats, but we're not sure where to attach the top mount of the seat belts.

Has anyone put these belts into a HR (or similar model) wagon, and be willing to share advice or photos of how this was done?

Thanks very much all.

Cheers,
JB

HR Tyres

I've got some quite old (20 year old) tyres on my HR and they are looking hard and have a few cracks in the tread - also 4 different tyres - so thinking of getting a new set...originals were 6.5 x 13 - which equates to 165/80 in metric...can get a good deal (Bridgetsone at $61 each fitted) on 175/70s - which are a common size now...is anyone using this size on their stock HR and do they seem ok re profile? They would be 3.2% less in diameter...185/70 is closer in overall profile but less common and not as good price..

HR Holden Numbers of different types

From what I can determine about 252,000 HRs were produced - I'm interested to know what was the % of Standards, Specials and Premiers - does anyone know or have a fairly good idea? Were the panel vans and utes only produced as Standards with options?
