1956 HOLDEN FJ STANDARD SEDAN – ONE FAMILY OWNERSHIP – 26,882 MILES SHOWING
The Holden FJ series is a range of motor vehicles which was produced in Australia by Holden from 1953 until 1956. The FJ was the second model of an “all Australian car” manufactured by Holden and was based upon the established 48-215 series, commonly referred to as the “FX”.
Presenting here in Cream with Red interior trim. Paint colour is original, however it has been repainted at some stage in the past.
It is very rare to find a car nearly 68 years old that has been in the one family ownership.
Presented for sale by the grandson of the original owner, who worked at the Holden factory.
We hold an original Holden Workshop manual, which looks at least 68 years old and probably has been used at least 100 times to help maintain the car.
The car has had brake and clutch attention in January 2023 and an oil service and radiator flush/coolant change in October 2023, so it drives and starts well for an old girl.
The car has always been garaged and covered when not out on car club runs and currently Historically registered with the FJ Holden Car Club.
Powered by a 2.2 Litre 6 cylinder engine, it produced when new 45Kw and 135.7Nm of power and torque, delivered to the rear wheels via that well known “3 on the tree” manual gearbox.
Performance wasn’t as important as sheer reliability in the 50’s and these cars were famous on race tracks and the early Redex Round Australia trials for their incredible stamina. Performance figures suggest when new they would achieve 0-100kph in 24.7 secs and a top speed a little further on near 120kph.
A wonderful time capsule of early Australian automotive history.
An ideal car for car club runs, events and show and shines.
