Hump Day...

GMH stylists in Australia had their first clay model of the FJ ‘1950 Holden sedan’ ready by September 1949.

Although there were changes only to the front and rear glass and the grille, the car looked remarkably different from the original Holden model.

Car Phone...

CALLING ALL CARS
Another great find was the AWA two-way radio Carphone, also used in police cars, and mounted centrally on the dash. The optional, telephone-style hand piece, in lieu of the normal microphone, must have been a delight to use.

Upper tailgate handle

To remove the barrel do I remove the pin and should it pull apart ? Or do I need to soak it in oil for a while ? Any advise is appreciated

4x4 VB Commodore

Seller says it's a genuine Molecraft conversion: https://www.gumtree....
I've seen the word Molecraft occasionally referring HQ/Z type 4x4 Holdens. Does anyone know anything about the Molecraft conversions? Were they the ones that used Landcruiser running gear?
This car could be a good project. I'd buy it just for the Cibie Oscars in the back.LOL.
This would be good in the shed with that white Hayward wagon.
