In 1974 General Motors released the Isuzu Gemini - their first small "World" car which was sold under an astonishing array of makes and models.

Most Australians knew that the Holden Gemini was a re-badged Isuzu, but were unaware the little car was being sold in the USA as the Buick Opel and Pontiac T1000, in Brazil as the Chevy Chevette, in the UK as the Vauxhall Chevette and in Germany as the Opel Kadett.

In 1975 GMH began the manufacture of the Gemini in Australia, and within a year of its release the little Gemini had become the most popular car on the market (no doubt helped by the low price tag and its being named Australian Car of the Year).

The Gemini got its power from an Isuzu 1584cc 4 cylinder SOHC petrol engine. A four speed floor mounted manual was standard, but the car could be optioned with a Tri-matic auto.

Amoung the (for the time) luxury accessories that came with this first Gemini as standard were front discs, reclining bucket seats, carpet, fan boosted ventilation and rack and pinion steering.

The last of the TX's rolled off the production line in 1977 when, after the usual makeover necessary to keep a car 'fresh' in the mind of the public, the TC model was released.
