50 years with the same family

According to the sellers of this 1971 Holden wagon, it has spent the best part of half a century as family transport.

It's undergone a few modifications over that time, including the addition of a five-speed Celica transmission and a disc brake conversion for the front end. 

There was a time when few people saw long-term value in this generation of Holden, but that started changing around a decade ago. Back then they were still relatively cheap, but there were signs restorers were taking an interest them, particularly the more glamorous Monaros and Premiers.

Regardless of model, the mechanicals for this generation are simple and robust, so keeping them going is not much of an issue. 

As with any car this age, rust needs to be checked for, however the bodies are relatively simple to work on.

This example is located near Cairns in Queensland and is on the market for $35,000.
