Australia's first fully home-grown sports coupe, the Monaro was a member of Holden's ambitious 'New Generation' HK range, launched in 1968. Conceived and developed in an era of massive social and cultural change, its design and marketing reflected a more exciting, youthful image and the Monaro went on to become a statement of national identity.
The Monaro, along with its HK counterparts, provided the largest number of options ever offered by Holden. magazine described it as “startling” and the exciting two-door, which was introduced six months after the rest of the range, took pride of place in Holden dealer showrooms across the country and proved an immediate hit with buyers. The HK Monaro was 1968 Wheels Car of the Year. On the racing front, a 1968 debut one-two finish in the Sandown 3-Hour (Roberts/Watson) for the Monaro GTS 327 was followed by first (McPhee/Mulholland), second and third outright in the Hardie Ferodo 500 at Bathurst, the forerunner of many Holden enduro victories.Stamp and coin cover details
