Introduction



Released in October 1974, the HJ Sandman followed the lead of the Monaro with the bold blunt front that somehow seemed to suit the van better than the sedan.

Once again the Sandman was tricked up with all the GTS options and came equipped with the same decals as the HQ series. Holden's plans for the Monaro Coupe were made obvious when the Sandman recieved more attention than its two door cousin.

Marketing unashamedly directly to the 'sand, sex and surf' generation, the Sandman was sought after and another Holden legend was now born.

Some of the marketing ploys were very 'risque' for the times and many of the adds would have todays "Civil Libertarians" up in arms but they did prove that Sex Sells.

I think the HJ sandman was pretty much the turning point as far as the youth and surf recreational vehicles went at that time. a great success! long live the "shaggin' wagons".
