Holden 48 215, FJ, FE, FC, FB, EK

Early Holden values remain strong and relatively consistent. The only concerns are FJ asking prices which have jumped a long distance ahead of 48-215s and the failure of EKs to keep pace with similar FBs. Owners seem very keen to push FJ prices past $50,000; a resolve buoyed by one car that did sell at that level.

Finding early Holdens in decent but unrestored condition is still possible and these are among the easiest older vehicles to restore. FEs and FCs provide a good compromise between the old-fashioned pre-1956 cars and heavier, slower FB-EK versions. One reason why EKs should be more popular than they are is that these were the first Holdens to be sold with automatic transmission.
