Old is good.

Wow, how rare would this be. It always amazes me when photo's/stories come out regarding car companies prototypes, this one is very good. Could you imagine how this 4wd ute would have sold, it would have beaten Toyota at it's own game I reckon. I wonder how many more of these experimental cars are around. The person that found this one must be very excited [I wonder if GMH has tried to buy it back] I know GNH made 4wd utes and station wagons in the 70's, I think they were based on the HT one Tonner? and then again GMH made 4wd Commodores, but here it is as a FE from the early 60's, but I think the wheels are aftermarket, anyhow nice car.

I don't pretend to be a Holden expert so maybe a few things I typed are not quite correct. Having said that, in my defense the car actually exists as per the photo, so who's to say that GNH make it and maybe even others. If it does have EH headlight rims and a later model mirror who's to say that Holden wasn't trying a few things as a market research exercise? Sorry yes I got the model wrong, I meant to say FX. Also I'm sure that there were Holden 4wds on the market around the 70's and they were called over riders, some were fitted witrh Chev V8's too, also Holden did make a 4wd Commodore for a few years, they were wagons and even a Monaro 4wd
Happy new year everybody

They were struggling to keep up demand for the 48 and FJ, so much so that the prototype wagon (that was built) wasn't produced, the van didn't make an appearance until the FJ series and an updated FJ was being worked on between the FJ and FE. There was zero possibility they would have been playing with a 4x4 model and probably as much demand for one. Those wanting a 4x4 were probably satisfied by the post war surplus. Many Holden lovers also forget that the factory was also producing vehicles for other manufactures like Bedford trucks etc so they would have been working flat strap, which is probably why the wagon didn't happen. By the way, what you're looking at there is a 1986 yellow Toyota.

Now I reckon your pulling people's legs. How can you say it's a Toyota? Holden and Toyota didn't model share until the 1980's [they called it barge engineering] and Bedford was made by Vauxhall if I'm not mistaken.I'm not who you think either, most of my work colleges call me jamfig?

1986 Toyota????
What makes you think it's on a Hilux chassis?
Does that mean it could be an early Hilux prototype?
Toyota could have put the prototype Hilux chassis under an FX ute shell (they were a dime a dozen in the 80s) for outback testing. It would be logical, who would look at a disguised 4x4 FX ute? I say disguised because it has the EH headlight surrounds and HQ mirror to confuse people.

But they did overestimate the load capacity (they were only 600 or 700 kg)
