    Move Ahead of your Time:

    (circa 1969)

    You are in the future - NOW - in the new Monaro, just released. It gives you, now, what other cars wish they could, like lines that get better looking every minute, like a new optional all-Australian V8 engine with big lazy power that drives these wider-track wheels where ever you dare to go.

    Like soft, secure bucket seats and safety all around you. And much more - the new Monaro - imported straight from the future. Now's the time to go Monaro. Move ahead of your time - the new Monaro - at your Holden dealer.
