This 1961 Holden FB Special sedan is a cool Aussie classic cruiser that has been neatly restored. This example comes to us as part of a large collection of cars. The FB started its life in Perth, Western Australia, being sold new by City Motors. The original dealer markings are still present on the underside of the bonnet.

The car has been restored in its original colour combination of two-tone Desert Glow (pink) and Corona Grey as confirmed by the body plate. The paintwork is well presented and the chrome around the outside of the car appears to have all been refinished or replaced. There are some cool accessories which include rear wheel spats and windscreen visor. The period look is complete with the original 13” painted steel wheels with hub caps and dress rings wrapped in white wall tyres.

Open the door and you will see the interior presented in its original colours of Mephisto & Chianti Red with Stardust Grey Bolsters. The trim appears to be a mix or restored and original items. The base of the seats front and rear appear to have been refinished while the uprights look to be original. The floor mats have been replaced with new items. The dash is painted body colour with factory gauges. There is a venetian blind in the rear window.

Under the bonnet is a 161ci 6 cylinder engine which has been recently refurbished. The engine is paired to a three speed manual transmission which is column shifted. The brakes and suspension underneath appear to be original without any major modification.
