Sixties family cruiser

Holden's EJ and its EH successor represented a huge shift in style for the local company. As we mention in a buyer guide on the series: 

"When the EJ range appeared on 30 July 1962 the difference between it and the horribly outdated EK was immense. Lower, modern and more compact with not a tailfin in sight, the EJ was a head turner and more than 10,000 a month were being immediately sold.

"Despite its smaller dimensions, the EJ sedan would still accommodate six adult Aussies and a stack of luggage. Those needing more space could choose a station wagon or for extra cargo a utility or panel van."

This 1963 example is exceptional in that it claims to be unrestored and have just 60,000 miles on the odo. It's running a three-speed column-shift and of course the 2.25lt inline six grey motor.

Located at Diamond Beach north of Newcastle, it's on the market at $65,000.
