1972 Holden Kingswood HQ Ute

Work Carried Out

This HQ ute came into Finest Restorations requiring the full front end to be repaired and painted due to been involved in an unfortunate accident. Since the vehicle was already receiving the finest restoration treatment in the front the owner also opted to get the roof re painted due to some old repairs starting to show up. The final stage was to brush touch and glaze the full vehicle giving it a flawless finish back to its former glory.

History of the HQ Kingswood Ute

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.
