A very special moment in the history of Adelaide’s link to Australia’s Own Car. The first prototype of the new Holden being driven on display for the GM-H staff outside plant 7 at Woodville in 1948.
For many years the subject of complete motor car manufacture had been under consideration by successive Australian Governments. L.J.Hartnett, managing director of GM-H pursued the idea which became known as the Australian Car project.
Proposals were made to Government by various vehicle manufacturers and GM-H presented their proposal to Parliament in March 1945 which was known as Project 2000. The first prototype was registered as a 1946 Chevrolet sedan in Victoria on 1 September 1947.
Prototype No.5 (registration number KY-442), which was used as a publicity vehicle and for the announcement of the car’s name as Holden, was first registered on 14 January,1948. This car was eventually released as the 48-215 [FX] on 2 November 1948.

Meh, he’s got a rope


#2484

Was it a rope or a bungee cord?


#2485

I couldn’t do that with a rope, safety net, bungee cord, parachute and two pairs extra absorbent underpants. You are clearly made of sterner stuff.

Gin for breakfast again Dave??? Fair play!
