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
tires. 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.
