"The current owner purchased the car approximately five years ago out of Melbourne. At the time the car was a nicely restored example but wasn’t the most exciting from a performance perspective. The current owner set about righting that wrong by upgrading the engine, trans, diff and suspension over the course of his ownership," says the Seven82motors website.

The body of the car was fully restored by the previous owner and repainted in it’s original colour of Lone O’ranger. Starting life as a base model, the car was upgraded with GTS fluted guards, a GTS grille and badging. The chrome and stainless on the outside of the car was all either refinished or replaced. The bonnet was later modified to allow the blown V8 to poke its head through. The external look of the car is completed with a set of 17” GTS style wheels.

Inside, the car was treated to all new trim at the same time as the body was done. The interior has been finished in original Sandalwood colour but with the addition of Houndstooth inserts. There are all new black carpets on the floor and new headliner up top.

In the engine bay now lives a fully built and blown 383ci stroker V8 engine. The was built by Engine Masters Australia in 2019 and started with a new EMA350 block which was bored and stroked to 383ci.

The result of all this work is a tough custom HQ Monaro coupe that’s a bunch more fun than when it left the factory. These HQ Coupes are always popular and this one is presented in an awesome factory colour combo and packed full of upgrades.

This presents an incredible opportunity to acquire a one of a kind 1971 Blown Holden HQ Monaro Coupe finished in Lone O’ranger. Additional features include:

- Built 383ci Chevy stroker V8 engine
- Weiand 6/71 Blower
