This 1954 Holden FJ Ute has come to us as part of a large private collection. He purchased the car mid last year out of QLD where it is believed to have lived for most of its life. The previous owner was using the car as a daily driver at the time which is a testament to its reliability given its age.

The body of the car has been repainted in a non-original but period correct pastel green colour. The car retains its original lines and styling with the only notable non-factory addition being a set of indicators added for safety. The paint and body on the car are driver quality with imperfections noted around the car and some areas where excess body filler is evident. The chrome on the car appears to be original in presentation. Completing the factory look on the outside is a set of 14” steel wheels with original hubcaps.

The interior of the car has been refinished in a dark green vinyl. The floors are covered in a reproduction original style rubber mat and the rubber seals have also been replaced. The bench seat has been retrimmed in new vinyl as have the door trims. The original steering wheel is still fitted and the original gauges remain in place in the dash. There is a tonneau cover over the bed with the internals of the bed sides replaced and timber on the bed floor.

Under the bonnet lives the original 132ci, 6 cyl Holden Grey engine which is paired to the original three speed, column shifted manual transmission. The suspension and brakes are believed to be original items. The electrical system has been converted from 6 volt over to 12 volt for better reliability.

With Holden no longer producing cars here in Australia, these early Holdens are an important part of our motoring history. You don’t get much more iconically Australian than a Holden ute! The car is being offered at NO RESERVE and will sell to the highest bidder come end of the auction.
