First Peter Brock HDT sporting Commodore made from this series. Redesigned engines. Addition of 1892 cm³ Starfire unit to create Commodore Four in fuel crisis-hit Australia, which was a marketing success if not an engineering one—car was underpowered. Holden suffered as Ford introduced alloy heads for its XD Falcon, a larger car but with reasonable fuel economy.
