Based on the humble Belmont variant of the HQ series, the SS was intended from day one to be affordable.

A quick PR and advertising blast saw dealer order books filling up fast – too fast. GMH originally planned a run of 1500 cars, which turned out to be woefully inadequate, so the company was forced to produce a second batch of 1300.

Styled by the legendary Leo Pruneau, its graphics were made with the aid of the 3M company, which at the time was just getting a toe-hold in the Australian market.

Basic spec was a Belmont with a 253 V8 in the snout and four-on-the-floor transmission.

Even basics like armrests had to be ordered as an option.

The 1972 model proved to be wildly successful, far more so than Holden expected, which found itself having to run out a second batch of cars to satisfy orders from dealers.

Three colours were offered, luridly named Lettuce Alone (green) Ultra Violet and Infra Red. Very seventies.
