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.

Special Sunday

The Holden Special is a mid-size car that was manufactured by Holden for Australasia. Introduced as the top-level trim in the new Holden FJ range of 1953, the Special was complemented by the entry-level Holden Standard and the mid-range Holden Business. The Business was in fact already available, introduced in July 1953 in the 48 series first seen in 1948. Three months later, the FJ was introduced, therefore forming a three-model lineup based around one car.[citation needed] A "Standard"-type variant also existed in the 48 series, but had been marketed simply as the "Holden".[1]

Tailgate winder lock barrel

Hi there people. Just trying to figure out if there is a simple solution or a solution at all for that matter if i have lost the key to my tailgate winder lock?
I note Rare spares and such the like do not list a new lock barrel so can they be re-keyed? ive taken it apart and cant see how the bloody barrel comes out of the housing. I.m sure it can if i had the key but what if you dont. I have a few winders all with no key so would be great to know what to do to fix them.
Cheers in advance.

Karl

Kingswood Thursday

The Kingswood sedan and wagon were released as part of the new HK series of Holdens in January 1968 (commercials: March 1968). This was an all-new body design, larger and heavier than the previous HR series. The HK series carried over the same local six-cylinder engines, but introduced the first V8 into the Holden range, the fully imported 307-cubic-inch (5.0 L) Chevrolet small-block engine.
