Here we have a Holden Classic FJ Sedan,

The current owner purchased the vehicle approximately 4-5 years ago and undertook the restoration.

Mechanically the vehicle has been overhauled including it’s original 6 Volt ignition system and the car runs like clockwork.

Paint and panelworks completed and it is a pleasure to drive!!

Paint colour is Mosman Blue with a dark blue top.

The interior has also been recovered and is very comfortable.
