Weird Holden HR Body Code

Hi all, my HR body code is a bit strange. It doesn’t say what transmission it had. It is HR2106-3367S
Basically, it says it’s a Ute, and it is but it says it is the 33rd made in Sydney, and made in 67, which doesn’t make much sense.

HJ Hand brake problem

Hi all, been a while.
Hope you are all well!

Has any one had similar trouble with their HQ - WB handbrake levers?
The inner bit wants to keep spreading apart letting the cable pull through. As you can see I have crimped it a bit without much luck. Disassembly looks difficult too, as it is a drill apart job by the look of things.

Any advice appreciated.

Cheers

LMH

HQ tailgate badges

Hi all.
Seeking some advice or ideas. I've some tailgate badges for my HQ Kingswood ute I'm restoring. They are in great condition and want to avoid ciutting the pins off if possible (and use double-sided tape). Is there a simple way to install these badges?

Any reply is appreciated.

Thanks, Dave.

Bathurst 1946

This is the NSW Gran Prix at Bathurst in 1946: https://www.youtube....
It was the first race there since WW2.
Frank Kleinig was there in his red Hudson Special (The 100mph Car) and Gelignight Jack Murray raced his Mackellar Special ( Bugatti Type 37A with a supercharged Ford sidevalve V8)
They were both timed at 110MPH over the quarter mile on Conrod. No seatbelts, no safety barriers, people standing on the side of Conrod straight.
