Holden Gemini (TX). 1975–7 (prod. 42,792). 4-door sedan, 2-door coupé. F/R, 1584 cm³ (I4 OHC). Holden edition of GM’s T-car, twinned with Isuzu Gemini and filling the Torana’s former four-cylinder niche. The name was licensed from Isuzu, and suggested the car’s dual manufacture (Japan and Australia). Cars even badged Holden–Isuzu, in the way the Japanese car wore Buick/Opel badges in the US. High standard of equipment for the 1970s, and sold on Japanese features alongside Holden dependability. However, ride and handling mediocre at best. Despite this, Wheels Car of the Year for 1975–6.
