1962 Holden EJ Hydromatic – Today’s Tempter

Two owner car, original condition, no rust and always garaged

Holden’s EJ arrived in 1961, with a bold new look compared to the very-50s EK range.

Gone were the rear fins and eye-lids, replaced by a flat boot and lower roofline in response to early60s Falcons of the era.

The looks were modern, but the driveline was not: powered by the tried and true grey motor which were reliable, but offered no real performance gain – especially compared to the XL Falcon’s ‘Pursuit’ models.

Humdrum performance aside, they’re still a handsome classic cruiser with plenty to like.

This one looks like an honest ’63 hydromatic version.

It comes to market on behalf of its second owner (of 25 years) who’s always kept it garaged.

It’s reportedly in original condition throughout with no rust and a reconditioned motor.

Overall, the car looks to be in good condition original paint with some blemishes developed over the years, but with a hard to fault interior and all trims and emblems in place.

The seller describes it to be in "pristine original condition", and is seeking offers over $26,500.

The car is based in Tasmania, you can check out the full listing here!
