1954 Holden FJ

FJ Holden

  Also see: Holden Car Reviews and FJ Holden Specifications
One of the best things about the FJ Holden was that, unlike the 48/215, it could be seriously optioned. For example, the 'Special' featured armrests, deluxe leather seat trim, front door courtesy switches, chrome instrument surrounds, black knobs with chrome inserts, dash facia grille extending to the glovebox, rear passenger assist straps, window winders, a cigarette lighter and (for the first time) came in a two-tone finish. Raising the profile of the FJ (particularly for its reliability and strength) were people such as "Gelignite Jack" Murray, who raced the FJ around Australia in the Redex and Ampol Trials - as well as in exotic overseas events such as the Monte Carlo rallye.New Zealanders could also join in the love affair we Australians were experiencing, with shipments to the "land of the long white cloud" commencing in 1954.
