Title: Some more Archive Pics

First pic from National Archives- copyright may apply.

Great pics, Alex. I spotted an A55 Cambridge in a couple of those shots, my old mans car for years. No wonder I turned to Holdens.

Post by: Johns on September 08, 2008, 12:12:04 PM
I saw the A55 too Colin.

A mate of mine's first car was an A50 Cambridge, that he bought in 6th year of high school (year 12 for the younger viewers ;)). It was mouse grey and we painted it light blue with a vacuum cleaner, the paint wasn't very shiny or smooth it was nice and thick ;D.

I remember driving it (slowly) up the New England Highway to Armidale. On the climb up Moombi from Tamworth, it was a close run thing to see if we could get to the top before the thing boiled. It seemed that every time you even approached a hill the temperature would start to rise in anticipation of what was coming ???

It did have electric wipers, but they were Lucas..... did you know they invented intermitent wipers?

Just think, if Joseph Lucas had invented the internal combustion engine, the motor car would probably not exist ;D

John

Post by: peterwmh on September 10, 2008, 11:35:27 AM
I often wonder if in 1959 people saw a new FC and went 'ho-hum there's another new Holden they are so bland compared to the old '29 model A, now they had style!!' 

I know today if I see an old Holden I'll spin around and watch it pass, but even a new SS Commodore won't even rate a second glance from me.  Maybe it's just me??

I remember as a kid in the 70s the road was full of hotted up FJs and EHs, but I still took notice of the new Kingswoods etc then (I guess because we had one!).  Chargers and 2 door Falcons always stood out to me though!

Anyway enough rambling from me!

Thanks Shayne, the building has aged better than the cars :o

I haven't seen an FE bird on an FC before. I have one at home that I didn't put on Nev because I think it looks too busy with the standard propeller. However, I think it looks great on the FC, much better than the plane. Might put it on Thelma 8)

Yep Alex,
That is a nice one.  Taxi is sporting its original issue Qld number plates from 1957.  In 1961 Queensland taxi plates changed to this type pictured here, starting at T10-000.  If anyone has any pictures of old Queensland Taxi Cabs showing the number plates, please email me a copy.  They don't have to be FE or FC of course, unless you are going to post them here ;)

Hi,

I work for ACTION, Action stands for Australian Capital Territory Omnibus Network. Prior to this we were all part of the Dept of the Interior. I found this photo going through the retirees website that has just been put together.

Obviously all the usual copyright apply.

(http://inlinethumb28.webshots.com/42843/2388683920060682858S600x600Q85.jpg) ($2)

The photo was taken in 1975. This was when it changed over to ACTION from the Dept of Interior and the new logo was incorporated into the stop.

Obviously the bit of interest is the FC standard in the background.

Title: Re: Some more Archive Pics
Post by: EffCee on March 21, 2009, 09:07:13 PM
The bus route 45 went from Civic to Latham, via the Higgins interchange before the Belconnen Interchange was built. The Route 440 traveled from the City via Hawker to the Higgins Interchange. I am trying to chase up some old timetables from the retirees to try and find out at what point these two runs intersected each other to give me an Idea as to where the photo was taken.

If ever you needed proof of the statistic that Holden had 52% market share during the FC's run, you only have to look at that photo of the Cahill Expressway. What a cracking photo. Top stuff Alex, as always.

A you sure the ute isn't an FE?  ;D

What is that in the distance near the other bus, another FC or a later model?

Post by: EffCee on May 22, 2009, 05:43:51 PM
A you sure the ute isn't an FE?  ;D

Looking at the ute, it has a short front mudguard spear which should designate it as an FC. As far as I know FE utes had a holden script in place of the spear.

What is that in the distance near the other bus, another FC or a later model?


Looking at the vehicle I would think that it would be an FE as the two tone does not travel down the boot as does the series 1 FC.

I am happy to be corrected... ;)

Title: Re: Some more Archive Pics
Post by: mcl1959 on June 29, 2010, 06:02:11 PM
I'd say dead, not sore.

This is the rarely seen result of car crashes in the 50's. The road toll was over 1000 in the late 50's because of the lack of seat belts, non collapsible columns & no crumple zones. Anyone who tells you they would rather have an accident in an old car than a new one - show them this pic.

I was actually trying to dig up a photo of a Falcon Taxi*, when I came across this. Don't think it's been posted before...

(http://www.lakemac.com.au/downloads/lmphotos/5055.jpg)

From City of Lake Macquarie's website ($2). I love the dog in the foreground.

* Before you ask, I got the new Trax catalogue in the post today, and am sure the 80s De-Luxe Taxis didn't look like the one pictured. Found a pic of a HQ ($2), but no XD. The HQ is more like I recall them, with a badge-shaped sign, which is nothing like the livery on this new Trax model. I think it has the decals lifted straight from the FC. This XE ($2) could be a De-Luxe, but too blurry to be sure.

I also turned up this, which is a fantastic photo, even if not FE/FC. It's a family owned fleet of Taxis, from Hamilton in NZ Victoria.

Here's one from the family archives (otherwise known as shoebox number 3).  Taken about 1971, that's me in Dad's arms with Mum and my brother.  The FE's roofrack  is loaded and ready to go.  This particular FE belonged to my Grandmother and she gave it to Mum and Dad when she bought a Volkswagen beatle which later caught on fire (I was in the back seat at the time).  I reckon Mum and Dad got the better end of the deal with the FE even though in this photo it just looks like any other 15 year old Holden. ;)

I had one of them coronas
painted flames all over it 1 owner car low miles
I remeber towing dads boat down to the local ramp just a centre console put it in and it wouldnt even pull the trailer out had to get a tow 1.3 litre 2sp auto not very nice at all.
I then stripped a cam gear so we got a complete cam and gear out of a earlly toyota truck that had the same engine and i dont know what the cam grind was but it was un drivable so we scrapped it.

I hope that one is in landfill somewhere.

Yes FCHoon, they weren't the ideal tow car.  Makes you wonder how powerful the truck would have been!

Bondi surfer John Knobel changing a tyre on Pittwater Road in the early 1960s, photo owned by John Knobel.

If you joined John Knobel on a surfing expedition, in his gleaming 58 FC Holden, the only condition was that you helped him wash and clean it out afterwards. Here’s a photo of John and his friends, far from their Bondi homes, sorting out a puncture on the northern beaches in the early 1960s. Cars were pretty special in those days.

I just love the Canberra photo - I'll take the FC wagon thanks. ;D  And the FE sedan is a pretty good looking car too!

I think this is taken at the War Memorial carpark.

This is potentially an EK, as the pic was dated 1962.
Either way it's a cool paddy wagon, and may be FC.

Thanks for sharing these they are great. Here is a pic of the same station that my FC came from. So one of these blokes was most probably the owner of my FC Taxi. That's why I am trying to track down the family so they can identify which bloke it is. I like to think I am a bit of a genealogist so kills 2 interests with same stone  ;D

I have had the photos below sent to me and they come with the following story:

I have been going through many old photo's on my parents farm at
Cootamundra. Dad was working at the CSIRO at the time & travelled a fair bit for
work in the old holden wagon in the photos.
 
Please note the one of the St Kilda Flats was taken in Narooma.
 
So - they are not my family photos and its not my Dad that is being referred to, but the fellow who generously shared these with me and has given permission for them to go up on the Forum.

The first 2 are at old Charnwood Homestead ACT (now suburbia).

Enjoy.

We saw a photo display in Adelaide Arcade once that had a black FE sedan police car.  I think it had  2 officers standing with it and it had a whopper of a siren hanging off the side of it. I've never seen it anywhere in their archives since - maybe it wasn't owned by SAPol though. 

Thanks for the link  :D

That pic of the Sydney tram with the old red rattler going over the bridge. Isn't that on the eastern side of the railway just north or south of Central station? Geez I wish I took more notice of things when I was a kid.

Hi Colin,
I think you are in the wrong city  ;)

I reckon that's a Melbourne Tram that has just crossed the Queens Bridge and about to travel under the Flinders St/Spencer St rail link (Spencer St now called Southern Cross.

If you google map this location cnr William st & Queensbridge st, Melbourne that it the location the photo was taken albeit 53 years later. Go into street view & rotate 180 degrees, it now looks like this:

(http://members.optusnet.com.au/blackct/Market2012.jpg)

Whereas it was like this:

(http://members.optusnet.com.au/blackct/Market1959.jpg)

Back in 1975 I used to work in the 2nd tallest building on the left in the 1959 picture - it was originally the headquarters for the State Electricity Commission of Victoria who I worked for until 1995 when the then Premier Jeff Kennet sold off everything he could so I lost my job as a consequence  >:(

BTW, Tram route 55 still exists and follows the same basic path it did back then:
http://ptv.vic.gov.au/maps-stations-stops/metropolitan-trams/tram/868 ($2)
Stop 1 at Flinders St is closest (beside the Immigration Museum) - the Immigration Museum is the cream coloured building on the left just above the train line in the 1959 picture (actually used to be Customs House until ~1970).

I love the picture as I remember crossing in front of No 55 Trams on the way to work,

Hi all
The top view is pre 1961..as the trams stopped running in Sydney in February 1961. "I believe" the location to be the top of William Street Kings X. The tram a Sydney R type car and is about to swing right to travel down throurgh Ruscutters Bay passing the Sydney Stadium (the old tin shed) on its way to Watsons Bay. Watsons Bay line finished in 1960.
What a lovely view of Sydney in the late 50s to 1960.
Thank You   ...Bruce

I believe the ICA was an additive that Shell put in their petrol to help stop pinging and valve wear.
Ignition Control Additive.

Hi Alex.  I do not know the story behind the photo.  Recently some long lost slides were found.  I have scanned all of them but only one with an FC  in it.  I found the date stamped on the slide. It was taken at my in laws property just outside of Beenleigh not too long after I came on the scene. As far as we can work out it was a visit from some friends. Will be asking ma in law when we next see her.

I was talking to some old taxi dudes. They said that some would put custom bumpers on front to put lights on, some taxi ones were also strengthened behind the bumper. When I get to doing the rechroming of the bumper on my taxi, I wonder how much filler it will have and whether it will be brass, not that I know much about chroming.

The pic of the new 50's Holden is very interesting. It's a 48 with what looks like extra controls for a disabled driver. Maybe a hand throttle above the light switch?

That lion pic is a cracker.
What bright spark thought painting the car in zebra stripes would be a good idea. Missing headlight rim, dented roof, bent overriders etc. Looks like it may have been mistaken for the real thing.
Makes you realise how big those kitties are.

Here's a carpark full of interesting cars.

Finally a period correct photo of my old home town with FC's. It is outside the "new" Woolworths. It actually burnt down early 70's and rebuilt. Still there today. This shot was taken sometime between 64-67. Shamelessly pilfered from Facebook under Isa Group.

  the cars that can been seen aboard the trail are on the west coast of tassy Rosebery to Burnie , as there was no road, the murchinson highway from the coast through tullah to Rosebury didnt open till 1962,  the loco pulling them is one of two Dubbs locos built in Scotland in the 1890s one can be viewed at the west coast mining museum at Zeehan, the other fully restored at the Don river rail museum at Devonport, highly recommend you visit both when you are over here ,especially the mining museum at Zeehan, allow yourself plenty of time lots to look at...........

The Fairbridge (Farm) Drag Strip was an old airstrip which was mostly gravel. Club members would sweep the quarter mile for race day. At the end of the Quarter mile you held on for your life because that's where the real fun began.

Hmmm, thats an interesting wagon, at first I thought it was a FC special wagon with a stripe kit, but its not. Then I thought its a standard wagon with a stripe kit, but its not.  Its an FE special wagon with what maybe a "Dart Look" flash kit the same as Chris Boutlev's car.
It appears to be grey and white with a maroon flash.
Would have been a pretty car in its day.

I was wondering if anyone noticed Ken.
I agree, FE special wagon with Dart was what I thought also.
According to the blog, the pic was taken from a family super 8 movie from '59 in Qld.
The girl on the right was the writer in the blog and I searched for more pics of the wagon, but none found.

Here is a picture of the first FC I owned takrn in 1965 at the parents in law house.  The house is over 100 years old as is the barn and cream shed.  All the builds are still in use and the ma in law still lives in the house.

I was told there was a picture of a FC or FE in the Saturday Newcastle herald, I didn't get that paper this weekend :( but is worth a Look (Possibly the weekender section).

Hopefully someone can find it and post it on here.

Cheers,

Another photo published in our local paper recently of Murray Street, Gawler back in the '50's. 
I did contact the history group,  since FC's didn't commence manufacture till 1957 they might need to amend the date of this photo.

Hey DJ.
I wouldn't say it is unique, I have seen a few FE's with this paint treatment.
I believe this was a way that FE owners added a bit more colour.
A way of upgrading to match it with the newer FC perhaps?
Here's a closer look.

Well, the cars in the foreground are not FE FC, but those behind are.
The featured car is a bit of a mystery as little is known other than it is in WA and wears a Holden badge of early 60's vintage. The other car on the stand appears to be Ross Coxson's FJ based custom (special) Anyone know anything about these cars?

That last pic is Doug Whiteford's garage, and looks like his Talbot-Lago T26C monoposto in the foreground (which he took to 8th place in the 1956 AGP).

Doug won the AGP in 1950 (Eldred Norman's Double Eight entered but DNF), 1952 (Eldred's Maserati entered but DNF) and 1953 (Eldred didn't race but McKinnon took Eldred's Maserati to 15th place).

Ken

VERY common practice by low-budget (read poor) racers was to just heat the rear springs with oxy to lower the car.
Also common was to take a few spring leaves out.
The softer springs helped keep both rear wheels on the ground as well, with axle tramp being a rare problem.
It was also common to heat the front springs or cut part of the coils out.
Usually we cut more out of the left, sometimes leaving the right side whole.
Very scientific, hey?

Hi All ... Remove this if off topic ( back of FE / FC only) ..but It just gos to show how different life was when our cars were young. Here we have, at Bendego a tramways truck and crew working on the tram line .....proberly welding .... using the tramway overhead, 600 V DC for power. How different life was in 1957 to 1959.    Who would had thought so many of our FEs &  FCs would still be running around well in to the 2000s.

Back to the 224s roll over photo, the motor appears to have broken off its mounts, judging by the gear box to tail shaft angle anyway (we have to chain our engine mounts these days for that reason) and are those rear floor pans rusted out??? What year was that photo taken?

I came across these pics amongst a series of photographs taken from slides.
The pics were taken in the early 60's and show a beautiful family FC.
No names, or locations, as they were acquired from a random box of slides bought at a market stall.
I love the insight these pics give into the early 60's way of life...the car, the house, the garden the clothes etc.
The pics were left large to allow you to check out the details....use the slide bar at the bottom of the pics.

Brilliant photos great to share them , shame they got left out to go to a jumble sale!! Anyway they are a fantastic snap of 60's life in the burbs in Australia reminds me of my aunties and Grandmother in the 60's in Reservoir in Melbourne always well dressed a Holden always in the drive and incredibly house proud. Notice that the first shot the lawn is freshly sown and the next one its cut short!
 and the guy with the 2 girls in the drive love the elbow pad on the drivers door!! Thanks again

Car would not have been bought new as John H Ellers the holden dealer was not opened until 1963.
I have a picture of myself in cowboy suit in the same era. (no ankle holster though) :(
Brings back great memories of my childhood times. :)

IMHO the photos here should have an FE or an FC in them, unless there is a specific reason why not (eg the 2 little girls in cowgirl getup)

Can have an FX FJ as well as an FE FC  ;D

Found some old slides from my dad's collection... this one's circa 1962 of my siblings and me in the family FC. It originally had a light grey flash but some time around 1961 dad resprayed the flash to maroon using the old hoover vacuum cleaner with a folded hanky as a respirator mask :o

OK, couple more pics...

(http://members.optusnet.com.au/blackct/slide4.jpg)

My Dad beside the family FC (earlier than previous photo as still has original grey flash). Not sure what the story was with the white socks.....

(http://members.optusnet.com.au/blackct/slide2.jpg)

Not sure of the location of this one but I remember the FE in front of our FC, it was a cousin's who thought he was top of the family until Dad bought his FC  ;)

(http://members.optusnet.com.au/blackct/slide1.jpg)

Think this one is outside "shell house" in Stawell VIC mid 60's

(http://members.optusnet.com.au/blackct/slide3.jpg)

This one is obviously later, I think around 1968-9 as dad had sold the FC to my older brother (who resprayed it to blue and white). Dad bought the ex taxi HD (hence the all black paint job) which he kept until mid 70's when he finally painted it red and white to sell it and buy a HQ 2 door Monaro LS (shame it was only the a 202). We built the caravan in dad's garage in the mid 60's and that's why dad bought the HD as the FC would not pull the new 'van.

Have some more I will post later.

Some great shots and the FC in the shot with the sheep looks like it has been hit in the right rear and an extra mould kit added. Speaking of extra's, do you know if the blonde seat cover is a Nasco item?
