1958 Holden FC sedan - today's tempter
This FC looks like an easy job to recommission.

Holden’s FC was an update model following on from the game-changing FE, with cosmetic and small but significant upgrades from its predecessor. Built from 1958 to 1960, it ran a familiar mechanical package, in the shape of a 2.2lt straight six and a three-speed manual transmission.

By this stage Holden offered numerous (seven) variants. There were a couple of trim levels for the family cars, with sedan, station wagon, utility and panel van versions on offer.

This South Australia car looks very complete and was inherited by its current owners. They say it hasn’t run for eight years, though it looks like it might not take a great deal to recommission it.

Surface rust is present and, assuming it’s structurally sound, you might be tempted to neutralize the rust and drive it as is.

Trim looks generally good and there is an original owner manual with the car. Overall it looks as though it’s spent its life under cover.

Asking price is $15,500.
