The 48-FJ Holden Club of SA Inc was founded in 1977 to cater for enthusiasts dedicated to the preservation of early model Holdens in as near to original condition as possible. It is rather unique in that it is a two model club only, covering the original 48-215 sedans and 50-2106 utilities, and the subsequent FJ sedans, utilities and panel vans.
The Club also has a strong social emphasis, which has resulted in friendship and enjoyment being two of its great strengths. While our early model Holdens are our common bond, it is the wonderful friendships among our members, the enjoyable and memorable outings and social activities, and the friendly atmosphere prevailing in whatever we do that make the Club a very special organisation.
We are actually a very disparate group of people, coming from a wide variety of interests and occupations, past and present. The fact that we get on so well together, despite such marked differences, says much about the ethos that successive generations of members have fostered. Far from criticising each other’s Holdens, we aim to be genuinely positive, constructive and encouraging when talking about our vehicles.
There is also a generosity of spirit among the technically gifted and experienced members, who willingly give advice and assistance to members who need it. Spare parts are either bought and sold or donated, in order to keep our vehicles as roadworthy as possible.
Anyone who owns or has an interest in our old Holdens, the 48’s and FJ’s, is welcome to join the Club. If you would like to know more, please come along to one of our meetings – you will be made most welcome.
Our club meetings are open to all members and non-members, and family are always welcome. Please join us at 8pm on the second Monday of each month at the
Model T Ford Club Room, Port Road, Croydon SA 5008
