Artist's Description

The exhaustive testing that was carried out on these models at Holden’s Lang Lang test ground covered more than a million miles. This paid off, as the Holden was coming to be known as a very reliable, yet easy to repair should the need be. Based on the EJ the EH had a much more powerful engine and clever styling changes. There was a wave of public interest before the release of this new model, which also contributed to its success. Central to the new model’s appeal were its styling updates, and the new “Red” motor. This new motor was stronger, smoother, more economical and more powerful. There was the 149ci at 95 bhp and the 179ci at 115 bhp, which was initially only available with the automatic transmission. This showed an increase in power of over 50% in the 179ci motor over the old “Grey” (one of the reasons the public wasn’t ready for a 179ci manual?) The 179 manual option was not available until April 1964.
