FJ HOLDEN SPECIAL For Sale
Description FJ HOLDEN SPECIAL
I am offering for auction my 1955 FJ Special Holden project. I bought the car as a barn find 10 years ago. the car had been put in a barn style garage by the original owner in 1972 and has not driven since,when he bought a hq station wagon. the car is a Special with leather interior. the original tartan seat cover is till on the rear seat and the front tartan cover was on the front floor of the car when I got it. the leather interior is in very good condition and has a air chief radio. the car was covered in a inch of dust when I cracked open the barn doors of the garage after removing a heap of grass and soil that had accumulated against the barn doors. the original paint is half flaked off the car over the years leaving surface rust all over it. as you can see by a photo of the bonnet,the rust was easily removed crushed glass sandblasting. the car has about 6 spots of rust,the only structural rust that I have noticed is each side of the radiator, the filler panel behind the rear b/bar is rusted,there is rust around the bottom of both C pillars,the bottom of one front guard also. it has had FX rear doors put on the car at some stage but the original doors are still sitting in the back of the car,just exactly like how it was when I got it,i have never removed them. I will take the FX doors off and put the originals on if/when the car sells. the under body and interior and in the boot area is still just like new,the black paint inside the boot is still really good. the motor and gearbox is currently out of the car and the motor is in pieces after I found it had a seized piston from sitting around for 30 odd years. the car has 16319 miles on the speedo and the original owner told me it was the original miles as he never drive it far from his house in the 27 years he drove it. it would make a very nice resto project for someone or if needed I could do a full restoration on it as I am the owner of Pro Street Restorations in the Hunter Valley. I am only selling it as I don't have the time to restore it as I have too many other personal projects going and would rather see it restored than just sitting in my shed for another 10 years. if you need to know anything please contact me. please don't bid if you don't have the funds to pay. thanks.
