      HOLDEN FX 48-215 HISTORY

      Holden FX 48-215 

      Australia’s first mass produced car, the Holden 48/215 (FX) was launched on the 29th November 1948. The Holden was originally offered in one body style, a 4 door sedan known as the 48/215. About two and a half years later in January 1951, the Utility model was launched. This was known as the 50/2106 model.

      The original sedan was offered in four different exterior colours, Black, Gawler Cream, Seine Blue and Convoy Grey. Interior trim was either Grey woollen Bedford cloth or red leather.

      When released, the cost of the new Holden 48/215 was £734 ($1469). The Utility was priced at £843 ($1686). From November 1948 to October 1953, there were 120,402 Holden’s manufactured.

      Although General Motors Holden officially called the models 48/215 (Sedan) and 50/2106 (Utility) they were commonly known by the public and motor trade as the Holden FX. It is rumoured this designation came about in the mid 1950’s from Melbourne used car dealers wanting to differentiate the early cars from the later FJ Series.
