The 1974 Holden Sandman HQ Panelvan is a utility vehicle featured in Forza Horizon 3 and all subsequent titles.
It is featured as the eigth Barn Find and Forza Horizon 3.
The HQ Panelvan performs similarly to its coupé counterpart, the Holden HQ Monaro GTS 350, but launches quicker off the line due to less weight on the front. Having a higher center of gravity than most C class cars, the HQ Panelvan tends to be fairly difficult to control in corners.
Both A class upgrade presets in Forza Horizon 3 swap the stock engine with a 7.0 litre V8 that produces 541 hp (403 kW) and 542 ft·lb (735 N·m) of torque. The HQ Panelvan also receives much improved handling performance. However, the rear tyres tend to be throttle sensitive, which is less of a problem for the ute variant. Other differences between both variants include a higher top speed for the van and less weight on the ute.
In Forza Horizon 3, the HQ Panelvan can be upgraded up to A class with the auto-upgrade feature. It can reach S2 class with conversion upgrades.
