1961 Holden EK ‘Special’ Sedan Hydra-Matic
Australian classic vehicles are becoming more and more difficult to obtain in todays market, especially in this condition. It has been owned and stored by 1 owner over the past 25-30 years. A classic and striking combination of white exterior on silver and red interior, which is in amazing condition for its age.
In terms of finish, “Standard” vehicles were painted in a single colour with no additional trimming or fittings, while “Special”, the most popular model, came with stainless steel trims along the side and a white roof, as well as chrome Special badges, and two-tone vinyl interiors. Parking lights were incorporated into the top grille bar, and other changes included new exterior badges, a revised interior trim, electric wipers (replacing the old vacuum type ones), and a new fresh-air unit with a new ventilation air intake located forward of the windscreen.
The only significant mechanical change from the FB was the introduction of the first automatic transmission to be offered on a Holden. Marketed as the Hydra-Matic, it was a well-regarded three-speed unit which was fully imported from the United States. It was only offered as an option on the Holden Special models.
Beautifully suited to the collector, enthusiast for classic Holdens or even a perfect museum piece.
