HD – end of prod. in April
HR – new model in April

Australia

A total of 178,927 vehicles were produced up to April 1966 when the HD was replaced by the Holden HR series.
The Holden HR range was released in April 1966, replacing the Holden HD series which had been in production since 1965. In additional to a revised grille, the HR feature a reworked roofline and larger rear window (on the sedans), revised rear lights (on sedans and wagons) and changes to almost all exterior body panels. Other changes include a widened track, improved interior trim and woodgrain interior finish for the Premier models. Six months after the launch of the HR, all models were given a safety upgrade with the addition of front safety belts, windscreen washers, reversing lights, sunvisors and a shatterproof interior rearview mirror.
