Re-re-posted (ta to, ahem...Ado!)

Re-re-posted (ta to, ahem...Ado!)

Andrew put this up ages ago. I think it works in some ways that the green EH 2dr custo seems to jar a bit...
[EDIT - Nope, it was Ado who posted this originally. Also, it's not remotely like a Plymouth Fury's roof!)

HK'ing.

Yeah, looks good.

There was talk a day or two ago about a 2 door HR. They look OK, but the roof-line just doesn't. This roof-line might work OK though...

The Tudors - pt 2.

I gather the EJ was the last of the in-house designed Holden bodies. The EH and subsequent HD & HR featured the edgy, angular seppo lines of the day. Nothing wrong with that, but I don't think this swoopy (50's Chev inspired?) roof would ever work atop an EH, etc.

Holden's drawings of an HR coupe have been posted here every once in while. They feature a very angular roof line, including a sharpish edge above the rear screen and at least as long a boot as the sedan. (Better than the oddly curved lines around the lower edge of the HR sedan screen actually.)

[EDIT] Conversely, the HK-T-G Monaro roof line returned to the curve-edged turret design. This was reputedly inspired by some Opel models/design, and subsequent Opel coupes of the 70's demonstrated that same smooth roof styling too.

HK'ing.

agreed

That works and give a cool 50s 60s Rock n Roll style.

Nothing is rare, you just need to know where to look.

Cool, ta!

Ah ha!
D'oh! Saint Neat was only in the thread.

Ectomorph?

Ectoplasm?
Other?

Yep, that's the thread in which Ado mentions he posted this pic 2yrs prior. Your site access & research skills are demonstrably awesome.... Not quite sure who in that thread was promoting any seppo companies though.

Plasmacytoma ?

Reseach skills ?

memory is all it took......... you should try it,
comes in useful when you learn stuff... .

do you remember why Ado joined OldHolden

"Reseach skills"?

I think we have some wires/topics crossed. Not quite sure what the next surprise accusation or topic might be though... :-)

No, I don't recall why Ado joined OldHolden. At a guess for more or less the same reason as any other member?
I'm more than happy for anyone to point out how/if/why it relates to me, or the context of me re-posting a pic of a cool custom, that others have also admired and posted in the past.
