Holden took until October 1974 to replace the hugely successful HQ range, launched in July 1971, with the facelifted HJ which featured revised frontal treatment, new wraparound rear lights and some new features such as fan-assisted flow-through ventilation, much improved seats and standard power front disc brakes from the Kingswood up. The HJ model range comprised the entry level Belmont, the mid-range Kingswood and upmarket Premier along with wagons, utilities and vans with the Monaro GTS as the undoubted hero variant. The HQ and HJ were the only Holdens to offer the Monaro in both coupe and sedan variants. There was a wide choice of engines, including both 2.85-litre and 3.3-litre sixes and 4.2-litre and 5.0-litre V8s, but all Monaros were V8-powered.
