HOLDEN HK BELMONT UTE

AUG 2017

IN A world of Convo Pros, reverse-cowl scoops and LS conversions, Jason Poustie’s HK Belmont ute is a breath fresh air.

Not only does it rock to ProCharged 383 Holden power, putting out 650hp at those fat rear treads, but all the mumbo is tucked neatly under the bonnet.

The rear rubber is so fat that the arches had to be stretched to suit; a relatively common mod on a tough streeter, but made complicated by Jason’s desire to keep the ute looking stock-ish. Jason took this on himself, along with all the major surgery, while drawing on the talents of mate Mark Bedggood to help neaten things up.

Trophies have flowed like water since, including a Best HK-T-G Modified at the Geelong All Holden Day.
