SU carburettors were a British manufacturer of constant-depression carburettors. Their designs were in mass production during most of the twentieth century.

The S.U. Carburetter Company Limited also manufactured dual-choke updraught carburettors for aero-engines such as the Rolls-Royce Merlin and Rolls-Royce Griffon.

The Holden HG range was introduced on 26 July 1970, replacing the Holden HT series which had been in production since May 1969. Changes from the previous model included new grilles and body decorations as well as new safety features, colours and trim designs. All V8-engined models were now fitted with improved disc brakes and the suspension system of the Monaro GTS was modified for greater comfort.

A new three-speed "Tri-Matic" automatic transmission was offered for the first time on the full-size Holden range.
