1965 Holden HD
Body: Ute RHD
Odometer: Indicating miles
- Classic iconic Australian ute
- Rare in this condition
- Increasingly collectible
- Unmodified condition
The ute has been an Australian icon since it was introduced to the Australian public in the 1930's. Filling a hole in the automotive landscape the functional work horse ute has endured and is a top seller today.
Holden's HD was produced between 1965 and 1966 and finding the ranges commercial variances in good condition is now rare to see.
This largely original HD ute has survived well with an older repaint in the original Narrogin Green with correct green interior in excellent condition.
The bare bones cabin is a time warp with no modifications from standard without even a stereo after all these years. The door cards, roof lining, dash, gauges and seats are in fantastic condition with some wear to the original floor rubbers. The exteriors wear's it's age with pride, the chrome is original and straight but with some light pitting on some parts all the light lenses are in good condition.
The simple and reliable 149 red straight six is unmodified and the engine bay is neat and tidy. Running the column shift manual that so many Australians learnt to drive on offers a unique driving experience today and adds to the feel that makes this era of vehicle such a fun and desirable classic to own.
This classic Aussie ute is ready to enjoy as is or with a little elbow grease will shine like the day it rolled off the production line.
Always an appreciating classic.
