Early attempts at creating a luxury car were disappointing, but none were as bad as the Brougham. This car was rushed to the market in 1968 and was a quick fix, resulting in a lack of time to extend the wheelbase. To create this lengthened luxury car, GM-H took the HK Holden Premier and added a 20 cm longer boot than the standard. The result was an ungainly vehicle, which was quickly associated with being cheap and cynical.
