      Holden FC History

      Holden FC 1958-1960

      May 1958 saw the introduction of the Holden FC, a face lift version of the Holden FE. Mechanically the Holden FC was basically the same as the Holden FE except for minor improvements to the engine and suspension. The engine had a higher compression ratio and an improved camshaft. These changes resulted in a smoother driving car.

      The major changes for the Holden FC was the outside trim, however there were many minor changes to the interior also. The Special model had extra chrome work added to the side panels and a new styled grille with bolder horizontal and vertical bars. The indicator and park lights were now incorporated in the grille on either side.

      Holden dominated the car market in Australia during this time with an amazing 50% market share. With prices ranging from £1141 ($2282) for a Holden Standard Sedan to £1311 ($2622) for a Holden Special Station Wagon, Holden sold 191,724 vehicles from May 1958 to January 1960.
