1979 Holden Sandman. Mine was red like this but had a front spoiler and chrome roof rails.  Big 5.0L V8 and bucket seats. Imported from Australia it had an extra fuel tank fitted for outback touring.

It also had factory lowered suspension which was a pain over judder bars as the exhausts scraped. This is probably still my favourite…
