Why only a 327? The HG Monaro came out with the 350.

Plus it's a bonus having the original 308 still in it. Broughams are pretty thin on the ground these days...

HG were 253 V8 optional on all models, 308 V8 optional on all models, 350 V8 standard on Monaro GTS '350' and im pretty sure they were the first trimatic v8 combination. HK had the 327 and 307,the HT had the 308,307,350 and by original motor i meant numbers matching :)

Don't worry bout Ari, from what I've read, he doesn't get the concept of people wanting a matching numbers engine in their car if it's not the biggest factory option or if it's modified.

Now where's these pics? Always wanted a brougham.
