By the time the FJ Holden was replaced with the FE in July 1956, Australia's own had taken many steps forward. The six-volt electrics were replaced with a 12-volt set-up, the two-piece windscreen was replaced with a single curved item and the skinny 15in rims were replaced with 13 x 4.5 steelies.

Unlike the FX-FJ, the FE was designed locally by an Australian team. The resulting car was much sleeker than the earlier models. The 132ci grey motor received an additional dose of horsepower thanks to larger valves and improved cylinder heads and gears were swapped with a column shift 3 speed non synchromesh gearbox. The FE got new pendulum-style brake and clutch pedals, hydraulic clutch actuation, larger brake drums and recirculating ball (rather than worm and sector) steering. There was also now an optional heater, indicators, reversing lights, windscreen washers and a demister.

The range remained the same - Standard, Business and Special - until the station wagon was introduced in 1957. That same year, FE utes and vans were released to replace the FJ commercial models. A total of 155,161 FEs were produced and delivered Holden a 42.7 per cent share of all passenger cars sold in Australia were Holdens!

AMCS presents for sale a rare to find in this condition 1956 Holden FE Special sedan. Beautifully restored to original specifications, this FE received a full ground up rebuild 8 years ago including a bare metal respray in the original Teal and Elk Blue Tu-tone acrylic paint. Interior and engine bay done in 2 pack. The original car was in excellent condition for its age with near perfect floors and sub frame. Totally stock standard and unmolested, this FE Holden Special has been mechanically upgraded with HD Holden brakes, suspension and diff to deliver superior handling and braking.

The interior has been fully retrimmed with all new hood lining, carpets, pinchwelds, seat and door trims. Everything works and this Holden truly transports you back over 60 years in style.

The motor, gearbox, radiator, brakes, suspension, drive line have all been reconditioned with all parts powder coated, cad plated or two packed prior to reassembly. All chrome work inside and out has been refinished and the owner has sourced and fitted many hard to source genuine NASCO optional extras including the radio, heater, sunvisor, mirrors, mud flaps, dress rims, driving lights, brake booster, oil filter, rear venetian and bonnet 'bird'.

Very well maintained since restoration the car has been treated to regular services undertaken by the current long term enthusiast Holden owner.

The FE Special drives and handles beautifully and is a super reliable cruiser on full NSW registration. Southern Sydney car. (AMCS Ref. 5707)

And if you like AMCS will gladly arrange a video inspection/road test of the car using WhatsApp and of course there is no issue with door to door freight delivery anywhere in Australia or New Zealand.
