Excerpt from EJ Holden Review...



Produced between 1961 and 1963, the "EJ" was the first of a bold new shape for the Holden. Gone were the fins of the previous EK model, and a new flat boot and lower roofline was created to keep pace with the more modern looking Ford Falcons. The EJ was designed from the Opel Kapitan, but incorporated some American influence, particularly in regard to consideration of aerodynamics. The trusty "grey" motor was carried over from the previous model, albeit with a few refinements. The EJ was the first model to introduce the new luxury "Premier" model, with innovations such as full leather interiors (dropped after two years), bucket seats and a console with controls for the two speed fan heater.

Excerpt from EH Holden Review...



1963 was a watershed for Holden, releasing what many people today still consider to be their greatest achievement, the eighth model "EH". The new model offered an impressive combination of style, power, refinement, ruggedness and value for money. Launched in August, it entered direct competition with the recently released Ford Falcon. An immediate success, more than 250,000 were sold in the first 18 months of its release, making it the fastest selling Australian car - ever. A far more substantial facelift of the EJ than those that had been attempted before, the "EH" featured a far more commanding look with a revised roofline and clever styling which, to most eyes, improved its looks from every angle.
