The HX arrived in July 1976 as the Australian automotive industry concentrated on meeting new anti-pollution requirements.

There was no Monaro coupe in the new HX line-up, but the name was emblazoned on a single, extroverted GTS four door.

Its bright colors, large GTS decals, color-keyed mirror and bumpers, integrated body-coloured spoiler options and optional bonnet black-out made it the most distinctive of all four door Monaros.

A substantial, long distance grand tourer, it retained the longevity and built-in toughness of the HQ series while adding greater comfort and extra appointments.

These included a new multi-function column stalk that replaced the floor-mounted dipswitch, controlling headlight high/low beam as well as windscreen wipers and washers.
