50 Years of Holden Wagon:Calais V Sportwagon v EH Holden Special Station Sedan
www.caradvice.com.au


The humble station wagon has been the cornerstone of Australian family transport for over half a century.

However, since Ford stopped production of the Falcon wagon back in 2010, your only option for a locally made, sedan-based hauler has been the Holden VF Sportwagon – in both Commodore, and Calais guise.

But sadly production of this too is due to cease in a few years time, so we thought it was the perfect opportunity to wind the clock back 50 years and take a look at a car that is both iconic and important to Australian history, the EH Holden wagon.

I remember seeing an FX wagon (I don't think it was an FJ) when I lived in Albert Park. It was dark blue and white and I assume now that it was a Cordell but my recollection is that it had a rear door set-up more like a Morris Minor Traveller so it may have been done by a different coachbuilder. I wish I had taken a photo of it. It was owned by a guy who worked at Holden I think.

At least I still have my pristine HT Kingswood wagon dad bought new when I was a kid...

But I never say never. Manufacturing of all types is about to revolutionize in the coming years; and will bring car-making in a different form back to OZ.

Yes. I suspect that modular build techniques will bring CKD type assembly rather than full manufacture but who knows for sure. Maybe developements like supercapacitor films will revolutionise electric vehicles in the not too distant future.
