HQ's, HZ Premier, HG Premier, vans utes etc etc
If you havn't seen it you should.
Anyone know of any other classic Aussie car movies?
I'm looking at installing air bag suspension in my HZ Sedan and was wondering what size wheels/tyres can fit without the need for tubbing or extensive suspension modifications?
The plan is to fit 20" wheels in there with 30 profile tyres and want to know if it's possible in these cars.
Hey guys, after a genuine opinion on what you think this van would be worth? It's got make an offer on it.
Running 253 and trimatic (not original)
Genuine gts guards
The rest is pretty self explanatory looking at the photos.
I got me car dyno tuned at motsons in QLD told me gas on idle was lean an under throttle it was rich anyhow I would recommend them any time some one on here put me onto them thanks for that.
Getting a lazy 118 HP out the back wheels at three grand revs,he said it about right for a stock 308 .i didn't tell him it had over three hundred thousand KMS since rebuild etc
Need a new one HZ sedan cheers
A friend of mine is about to undergo a cobra kit car build and was talking about a special license he will be taking out
that gives him only 90 days driving a year and requires him to keep a log book, but more of interest gives him a bit more
scope on running items that would be otherwise illegal.
I think he said it was a hotrod license. I've had a look at the licensing website and it states the vehicle must be pre 1949
to qualify? A club concession license says the vehicle cant be modified?
Hello everyone. Haven't been on the site for a while and thought Id show you all my first attempt at some old school flames.
Trying to stay committed to a "have a go" outlook and with enormous help from my adorable wife we searched the net for some flame styles.
Then found out how to stencil, mark out ,tape up and method of painting and just had a go. This effort all stems from some "have a go"
rust repairs in the RH window scuttle area and both doors and then touching up with paint and finding the result was patchy. So I decided
to repaint in protec GT black. Painted the flames and then covered with some satin clear. Ive just got to put some sundry items back on
and Im rollin again. All up took me a week and a half. Hope everyone drools. Long live old holdens
I've just found a shell of a Holden HZ that I want to use for parts but I'm not sure if the numbers and tags are matching.

i'm confused. can anybody possibly shed some light on this hz door rear view mirrow for me?
it is completely loose on the ball - useless as is. it doesn't look damaged.
two of the three screws have been (somehow..?) sheared off. they rattle around inside - i can't get em out.
the mirror looks completely sealed so i cannot see how i can service it. i just wanna tighten the attachment ball up.
there's nothing wrong with the mirror - besides the looseness.
i really wanna keep it.
any ideas boys?

Hey all. I'm new on this website and just wanted to introduce myself.
My name is Tom and I'm from Sydney.
I've been reading posts on this website for almost a year now and have just bought my first Kingswood today, a 1979 Kingswood Premier with a factory 253 Trimatic.
It's got your usual rust spots etc but I plan on restoring the whole car properly including some modifications along the way to make it my own and unique.
Here are some pics of it:
I have had oil leaking issues with my Banjo diff. So I have replaced axle seals and gasket between diff centre and housing. All looked good until i took the Prem for a 1 hour drive and popped it back on the hoist. I still had a oil leak and it was coming out of the breather. I checked the level and it was okay, not overfilled. thought about replacing it with a new one, but you can't buy them. Any ideas people?
Hey guys need some advice I've been lied to about condition of a motor in a vehicle.
Recently purchased a car.
Was informed the motor was a new crate 350 only done X000 ks. However it has a police stamp number and the thing is running like a John Deere.
So if it is stipulated over and over its a new motor & clearly not do I have any legal legs to stand on?
The car was just under 10k it was purchased thru a dealer in another state.
Should the seller come to the party with the truth & cough up a bit of a refund to rhetoric the motto running properly?
The timings way out it's running really rich changed points & plugs today she starts then runs for 15 seconds then stops.
Any diagnosis tips? Next step was to check fuel lines .
hi everyone hope you all are well.i need some help please.i got a holden hz sedan and i need to change the proportioning valve and just wondering if a p6720 proportioning valve fit the holden hz as i can get a brand new p6720.
1) just stripping me driver's, front door down today and just wondering (again)
why gmh used different size lug holes for the door rubbers around the botton/sides than
from the window frame. obviously, the big holes need plastic grommets, where the window frame holes don't.
what do you boys reckon?
2) does anyone know the correct way the winder winder and door opening handle anti-rattle springs go?
the photo show how they were. the window winder spring looks right because the lower coil fits
snug around the regulator. it looks upside down when compared to the door opening handle spring.
any ideas boys? manuals say nuttn...
btw, the door looks bewdiful now..great nic...but let's see how she looks when the paint comes off to bare metal
