Replacing the ‘HT’ series, the HG was introduced in 1970 with a production run of only one
year. A minor facelift was undertaken with the introduction of new grilles, colours and trim
designs. Belmont, Kingswood, Premier and Brougham model lines were retained as well as
the desirable Monaro GTS. The HG series also featured an export program to South Africa,
with models rebranded as ‘Chevrolet Kommando’, ‘Constantina’ and ‘El Camino’.

This example is a HG Kingswood, subtly completed as a pro street cruiser for the streets.
This HG has undergone paintwork in a sedate shade of burgundy, contrasting nicely against
a set of satin finish Centerline Autodrags with a 5.5 front and 8.5 rear. While retaining
Kingswood specific exterior details, the raked stance gives an aggressive pro street look.
The interior is newly trimmed in black vinyl, featuring front bucket seats and Kingswood style
steering wheel. A range of modifications have been made to the interior including a B&M Pro
Ratchet shifter, Autometer tachometer, oil pressure and water temperature gauges and an
aftermarket Kenwood stereo.

This HG Kingswood now runs a stout 350ci V8 mated to a turbo 350 transmission and a 9”
differential. The following work has been undertaken to the running gear:

  • 350ci small block Chev

  • 11.1 forge pistons

  • Scat rod crank

  • Solid F254 cam

  • Fuelie heads with big valves 2021.6
