The HT Monaro was introduced in 1969, as the face lift replacement to the highly successful HK. Missing from the HT lineup was the 327 cui engine, now replaced by a larger 350 cui. The larger engine pushed the output to 300 b.h.p. but only when it was paired with the 4-speed manual transmission. Upgrades from the HK also included the instrument cluster, with the tachometer now housed within the dashboard, the suspension was revised, and thicker brake discs.
Cosmetically the front grille was changed from metal to plastic, and the rear lights were now taller and wrapped around the car. The rear of the boot lid was also now a flat panel instead of having an undercut. The most notable upgrade was to the bonnet with the addition of twin air scoops, although they were more style than function.
The HT Monaro continued the racing success of the HK. In 1969 the Holden Dealer Team was formed and entered three HT Monaros in the 1969 Bathurst, with the HDT 44D car winning driven by Colin Bond and Tony Roberts. Norm Beechey also had success with the HT Monaro, winning the 1970 Australian Touring Car Championship.



The HT was a facelift to the previous HK, with the bonnet now featuring twin bonnet scoops. The metallic badges are replicated to match the real car.

The GTS ‘sports wheel disc’ hub caps sat on top of steel wheel rims. The front wheels featured brake discs that are replicated in etch metal.

The HT Monaro GTS interior received a styling update, and now featured circular instrument cluster, including tachometer within the dashboard.

Form fitting buckets seats have been recreated in soft touch rubber. Fabric seat belts have been included for a realistic appearance.

The engine bay shows off the 350 V8 engine. The chrome air-cleaner has large openings with visible etch metal mesh.

The rear chassis shows off the impressive exhaust system. The dual exhaust system splits into four chrome tipped tail pipes.

The front chassis shows the engine sump, exhaust system and working suspension. The front wheels are even linked to the steering wheel.

The chassis bears an individually numbered etched metal plate which is the edition number of your model.
