HOLDEN HQ 1 TONNER
The Holden HQ series is a range of automobiles that was produced by Holden in Australia from 1971 to 1974. The HQ was released on 15 July 1971, replacing the Holden HG series. It was the first ground up redesign of the Holden line since its original release in 1948, and included an all-new body, chassis, and suspension. The HQ was later developed into a series of successor models, finally ending production when the WB series was discontinued in 1984.
A Holden SS sedan was released in August 1972. Although marketed as a separate model in reality it was a Belmont V8 sedan fitted with the XV2 option package.
The Monaro range initially consisted only of two-door coupes.
Holden Monaro GTS
Holden Monaro GTS 350
Holden Monaro LS
Two four-door sedan variants of the Monaro GTS were released in March 1973 and similarly to the SS the new sports sedans were a special vehicle package optioned on a lesser model, in this case on a V8 Kingswood sedan. Option XV4 was the HQ GTS sedan. Option XW8 was the HQ GTS350 sedan.
The commercial vehicle range included coupe utility, panel van and cab chassis truck models.

Holden One Tonner
The One Tonner, which was new for the HQ series, was a cab chassis truck. A Sandman option, which was offered on utility and panel van models from January 1974, included various “sports” items from the Monaro GTS.
The Holden One Tonner, (HOLDEN HQ 1 TONNER) is a cab chassis automobile that was produced by Holden for Australasia between 1971 and 1984, and again between 2003 and 2005.
