Excerpt from HR Holden Review:

Basically a face-lift of the previous model, GM's US stylists redesigned the somewhat unpopular HD shape and came up with one much more appealing to the Australian public. The redesign included vertical tail-lights, a sharper nose and moving the front parking lights from under the bumper to become integral with the grille. The track was now wider, and the bodywork featured a new rear window, a reworked roofline and squared off headlamp surrounds.

Inside, Holden developed a more luxurious trim which included wood grain for the Premier, the addition of front seat belts, a shatterproof interior mirror and windscreen washers. On top of these standard features, the NASCO range of accessories increased and now included such options as power steering, front-wheel disc brakes and a limited-slip differential. Immediately more popular than the outgoing HD, the resultant sales surge saw many more HR's being sold than HD's.
