Holden History

Holden HQ 1971-1974

Holden HQ

The Holden HQ was General Motors Holden most significant change to date. It included completely new bodies, chassis, suspension, brakes and interior. The only components not changed were the engines, transmissions and differentials, although the six cylinder engines were increased in size.

The 161 cubic inch 6 cylinder engine was bored out to 173 cubic inches, while the 186 cubic inch engine was increased in stroke to 202 cubic inches. The Australian 253 V8 and 308 V8 remained the same, being modified slightly to suit the new chassis. 

The three speed all synchro manual gearbox was retained along with the Tri-matic Automatic although an electric kick down was added.  An Australian four speed manual gearbox based on the three speed manual was added and a Muncie four speed gearbox and Turbo-Hydromatic Automatic were added to mate up to the 350 V8 Chevrolet engine.

The Holden HQ had the most Australian design input of any Holden to date. The range also had the largest selection of body variations and model variations, many special edition limited run models. The Limited Editions included the SS V8, 25th Anniversary Premier, Vacationer Sedan and Wagons and Sandman Panel Vans and Utility. The basic model range consisted of the base model Belmont, Kingswood and Premier. The Brougham was replaced with the Statesman which came in two models, the Statesman and upmarket Statesman De Ville.

The Holden HQ was to become Holden’s most successful model so far with 485,650 units being sold from July 1971 to October 1974.
