The Holden HR range was released in April 1966, replacing the Holden HD series which had been in production since 1965.

In addition to a revised grille, the HR featured a reworked roofline and larger rear window (on the sedans), revised rear lights (on sedans and wagons) and changes to almost all exterior body panels.

Other changes included revised ball joint front suspension, widened track, improved interior trim and woodgrain interior finish for the Premier models.
Six months after the launch of the HR, all models were given a safety upgrade with the addition of front safety belts, windscreen washers, reversing lights, padded sun visors and a shatterproof interior rearview mirror.

This lovely HR Sedan was one of those Safety Upgraded cars, cared for by its current owner for over 12 years it certainly shows … with a very original interior in wonderful condition throughout.

It has the Gearshift safety lever lock and the sticker has survived on the front right quarter window.

This car also has an X2 Dash.

The exterior presents very well and has been painted at some stage in its lifetime in those colours, with the engine bay and boot areas showing as original.

As seen in the photographs the books are with the car and show ownership of the vehicle originally with GMH Pty Ltd Dandenong including their service history tabs, you will also notice a very interesting stamping on the drivers side inner guard area stating “GMH TEST VEHICLE”

With extensive effort to verify this the owner was unable to find any answers or further information from GMH or the people close to the car during its time at GMH, best described in the owners notes (see PDF in the photo area).

Please note the PDF Link in the photo section with Words from the owner about this lovely 1966 HR Holden.

Once again a perfect club car with the books and great history and intrigue.
