Artist's Description

Produced January 1960 to April 1961.

With the popularity of Chevrolet late 50s styled cars with the australian public, General Motors Holden decided to continue with the basic form for their new FB series. They did however make some refinements, the weight of the car was slightly increased through a length increase of 140mm. With the increased weight came an increased capacity motor, the old 132ci was altered to become the 138ci motor, with the increased weight though this only returned the FB to the performance of the FC.

The FB entered the market only 2 weeks before Fords new XK series, Holden though was enjoying a 50%+ market share of car sales in Australia at the time. Being the first Holden with the new acrylic paint work (or Magic Mirror as it was referred to at the time) gave the FB an improved appearance over its predecessors.
