I had an HD Premier from 71 till 73. Wish I still had it. My favourite early Holden.

The HD looks beautiful, my first car was a HD Premier, trusty 179 under the bonnet the low rise bucket seats in it were like arm stairs, had it from 1975 to 1981, great memories

Thanks, the 179 & powerglide has made way for a 202 +20 thou, XU1 spec'ed 161 head, VK efi cam, VH electronic dizzy rebuilt & recurved to suit the cam, X2 headers with dual engine pipes into a 2 inch free flow muffler with a 2 inch mandrel bent system, 253 spec'ed trimatic, a pair of rebuilt 186 carbs on a genuine X2 inlet with a custom air cleaner.
But the twins will be making way for a 34ADM Weber off an XE & I built this combo to tow & I don't think that the twin's will be suitable for towing, so the Falcon two barrel gets the nod.

Good stuff. I always liked the often maligned HD. Why are you towing with the old girl though?

I'm building an old school poptop camper it only weighs 720kgs & weather permits the HD will be the occasional tow vehicle.

I've often thought that an HD or HR fitted with an Ecotec and five speed or auto would be a nice performer. Much lighter than a VT-VY. Upgrade brakes and suspension and you'd have a sweet and reliable performer.
