A display of the works of GM Holden's first Australian Head of Design, Phillip Zmood.

Zmood commenced his career with Holden in March 1965 working as staff designer on the HR, HK, HT and HQ range of vehicles. From 1969 to 1981 he worked as Chief Designer in Australia and Germany. Until 1995 he was the Executive in Charge of Design. He is credited with creating the major design elements of some of Holden's most iconic muscle cars.

The collection features original sketches of the GTRX and the Torana as well as Zmood’s childhood sketches, studio photographs and product brochures.
