2021 Holden Australian Icon 1968 Holden HK Monaro GTS 327 Medallion & Stamp Cover PNC.
The much anticipated 1968 HK Monaro GTS 327 - Holden's first two-door, fastback coupe - instantly appealed to younger buyers and fans of the burgeoning "muscle car" trend in the USA, with its flashy colours and offset stripes, lowered suspension and console mounted tacho.
With a Chevrolet V8 engine and Saginaw close-ratio four-speed manual transmission, it could reach speeds of 125 miles per hour, unimaginable just 18 months earlier.
The HK also boasted a limited slip differential and power disc brakes up front.
Privateer Bruce McPhee drove a Monaro GTS 327 to victory in the 1968 Bathurst race, the first win for a Holden at Mount Panorama.
The HK also became the first Holden to receive the coveted Wheels Car of the Year award.
The stamp and coin cover features an illustrated envelope featuring the 1968 Holden HK Monaro GTS 327. It also includes an Australian $1.10c commemorative stamp and is post marked First Date of Issue 12 April 2021, Port Melbourne VIC 3207.
The medallion's obverse features the inscription Holden Australian Icon along with the Holden logo.
