Comments


The Holden FJ perhaps evokes the most nostalgia out of all the early Holden vehicles as it was the first car for most Australians at the time. It was impossible to miss the FJ on the road. Reflecting the optimism of the post-war period, the FJ was a bold statement that came in 12 colours as well as two-tone finishes and was packed with accessories and decorations. There were five FJ variants - Standard Sedan, Special Sedan, Business Sedan, Utility as well as Holden’s first Panel Van.
