1969 Holden Hurricane, Melbourne
Everything old is new again! How true that is especially with this restored 1969 Holden Hurricane, Melbourne. Painstakingly restored by factory workers (who volunteered) this was originally a concept car. But it’s amazing how many of its features were ahead of its time that we take as normal for today. It had automatic air-conditioning, a rear camera that can be viewed in the drivers seat, guidance system providing directions from detecting magnets in the road and modern Corvette styling.With it being just over 100cm high it packs a punch with a 253-cubic-inch Holden V-8.
“…For that time, the engine’s output was considerable, and a four-barrel carburetor had never appeared on a Holden until that point…”
