Not sure about the standard features here but I know we never saw this power plant here in Oz...

Nice. I remember those. I have a Wheels magazine somewhere around the house testing it from memory. I also recall a Sarich orbital engined TC Cortina from around the same time too.

Must have been a decision by the same guy who chose the powerplant for the OKA:-)

The Bangkok highway patrol still use Holden Premiers as their 'black and whites' CHiP's style chaser cars. You see them parked under the freeways at night.

What sort of info are you after?
Standard was non-metallic paint, 202 6 cylinder column manual, bucket seats with vinyl trim. Push button radio & heater/demister.

Shaker,

Sorry to dissappoint you, but after owning 3 of the Kingswood range, the HJ, HQ and the HZ, they all came standard with the bench seats. The HZ even had a pull down arm rest set in the middle of the front seat. The HJ and HZ were the pick of the Holden range, even after the bomodores were released. Even to this day, the HJ is still in the family and going strong.

I can assure you that I am far from disappointed!
I did read the thread title wrongly & thought it referred to HZ which I thought came with buckets as std. The HJ & HX certainly only had a bench seat.

Oooohh, now you've done it, I just remembered how well the pack of winny reds sat up the sleeve of the tight T-shirt.
Aaahhhh....reminiscing is a wonderfull thing.
You're right crewser, those were the days, ten cars lined up either side of the highway about 10 k's out of town, front wheels sitting on the white line, with the other spray canned white line 400 mtrs down the road, butterflies in your stomach, tacho needle hovering above the 4000rpm mark, your breathing pauses as the arms go up..........

I am not sure about standard feature back then, they started from very basic and you had to tick the option boxes to option up
