Introduction



Just two short years after the initial introduction of the Gemini GMH decided to update the little car that was proving to be a huge hit with Aussie buyers.

The new model TC was, as could be expected after only 2 years, merely a facelift of the old model, however Holden decided to introduce some important handling options, such as a front stabilizer bar and steel belted radial tyres. The drive train however remained unchanged.

Externally, the car remained little changed, the most noteable difference now being a vertical slot front grille. 1977 also saw the introduction of the "Sandpiper" model, which featured a stereo cassette player, a four spoke steering wheel and a wood grain finished dash.

I bought one of these new around 77/78. The Gemini, in my opinion, would have to be one of the best cars of it's era I thought it so good, I traded it on a new TE with RTS after finishing with the TC. The TE was also excellent, but didn't have the same power. I drove from Townsville to Perth twice in the TE, it overheated crossing the Hay plains on one trip, but otherwise never had any problems. My previous car was a 250 ci Cortina, but this little Gemini amazed me with it's power - what a great little car.

Just a correction on the tank capacity, i have a coupe and the capacity is indeed 52 litres, the tank is not model specific, at least as far as the coupes go, so i guess it is 52 across the board.

The technical specifications say the fuel tank was 52litres but the TC has a 30litre fuel tank. I imagine that applies to the TX as well and probably other models.
They are so fuel efficient they didn't need a bigger fuel tank.
A great little Australian car. Rear wheel drive, great handling and acceleration.
