Holden FJ Ute

The FJ was the second model of the first "All Australian" car, the Holden.

Initially available in 1953 in two body styles, a sedan (with 3 trim options) and the Utility (Ute) shown here, a panel van also became available late that year. There was a wagon prototype but it never went into production.

Power was from a 2.2 Liter (132.5ci) in-line 6, called a "Grey Motor". No prizes for guessing what colour it was painted!

A total 169,969 FJ's were built. Many were used for towing boats and moving "stuff" around, and most suffered extensive rust issues over the years.
