HOLDEN HD UTE
The Holden HD series is a range of automobiles which were produced by Holden in Australia from 1965 to 1966.
The Holden HD sedans and station wagons were released in February 1965 with coupe utility and panel van body styles following in July of that year. The Holden HD Ute range replaced the Holden EH series which had been in production since 1963. The HD had a completely new body, which was wider and longer than that of the EH and offered significant increases in passenger space, load space and equipment levels. Body styling exhibited strong similarities to Vauxhall’s FC Victor of the previous year, including that car’s unusual concave rear window. Disc brakes were offered for the first time on a Holden model and the optional Hydramatic three–speed automatic transmission as used in the EH was replaced by a Power glide two– speed unit.
The HD was also the first Holden to be offered with a factory performance engine option, the “X2”. The HD is often confused with the later HR but can be recognised by the front indicators being mounted under the bumper (the HR had round indicators mounted in the grill) and the wrap around tail lights at the back (the HR had narrow lights that extended up the end of the rear fins but not around the edge)
The Holden HD Ute commercial vehicle range was offered in 2 door coupe utility and 2 door panel van variants, marketed as follows:
• Holden Utility
• Holden Panel Van
