Comments


If any Australian vehicle symbolised the sensational Seventies, it was Holden’s Sandman. It will forever be associated with the thriving surf culture of the day and has since become an Aussie icon. The HX Sandman package was introduced with brighter colours, new side striping and that unmistakable full width tailgate decal, which was designed to appeal to a younger crowd.
