The HX Monaro was a minor update but sales of the 2-door coupe models were slow. The practical four-door sedan was the clear favourite with buyers so to clear the remaining stock of coupe bodies, Holden released a limited edition Monaro coupe designated the LE.
The LE used parts from various prestige models including Monaro and Caprice models and strangely, Pontiac-like honeycomb wheel covers.
Most HX Monaros were sold as 4-door sedans labelled the GTS. Body-colour painted bumpers were available as an option.
