Is it just us? Probably not. Aussie wagons seem to be in big demand at the moment, and relatively short supply as most of them got driven into the ground and got cut up for scrap.

So it's not every day you get to see a presentable example from the EH family.

These Holdens were built in sedan, utility, panel van and station wagon form from 1963 to 1965, with just over a quarter of a million being produced.

Of course this was the generation that saw the S4 produced, effectively a sports or homologation race version of the sedan. They were distinguished by a tougher driveline (with the 179 'big' six), a more comprehensive tool kit and a significantly enlarged fuel tank.

Two engines were available in the standard cars: the 149ci (2.4lt) and 179ci (2.9lt) straight sixes. They were matched to either a three-speed manual or the three-speed Hydra-Matic auto.

This example has the 179 along with the three on the tree manual. Inside it looks right for the period and overall it seems to have suffered little or no molestation. The owner does point out it has a modern stereo (in addition to the period radio mounted under the dash) but that's hidden away under a seat.

Located in Tweed Heads, NSW, it's priced at $27,500.
