Torana Tuesday

The Holden Sunbird was also updated to UC specifications and continued to sell well as a 1.9-litre four-cylinder car, sharing its body architecture with the UC Torana sedan and hatchback. The UC Sunbird expanded into three trim levels: base (manual only), SL, and SL/E. It did very well in New Zealand, where it was assembled, particularly in fleets, where it competed with the Ford Cortina and a variety of Japanese models. SL/E trim was also available in New Zealand. The UCs had square headlamps and a smoother front end. LX and early UC Sunbirds were fitted with a 1.9-litre Opel engine.

Turbo 400 fluid loss through breather and GMH's answer to the problem

If losing fluid from the Turbo 400, GMH's answer is to lower the oil level to the add mark. This answer was from 1974 GMH bulletin though. Page 10 to view..

Ht brougham paint code

Hi I’m trying to find out what the factory colour my HT Brougham is.
Plate says 567-10972. I’ve spent a bit of time looking around and all I can seem to find is it’s a metallic paint but no colour.

Rocker gear on a 202 head.

I'm putting a old 202 yella-terra head on my 179,, Do I have to use original rocker gear (saddles) or can I use the old (179) adjustable type. Cheers, Norm.

No more Holden utes

Well, been looking at the final series (series 2) of Holden VF utes, with the 6.2 litre V8. No more new ones available according to the local Holden dealer. He reckons he checked Australia wide. I'm wondering will the used utes go up in price? Insurance premiums may go up also.
Thoughts?

Cheers
Keith

Monaro Monday

Holden had a limited number of HJ coupe panel sets in 1975 and the decision was made to do something special with them The solution was to create the Limited Edition, or LE, which was not released until 27 September 1976.[3]:163 600+ body shells were assembled at the Pagewood body plant as HJ bodies in white late in 1975, but due to delays the HX series came around before LE production begun, thus the cars had to be converted to HX which meant body shell changes.
