Ok,
Thanks for the tip Marco.

I might take the FC to Heartland Holden tomorrow, 5 minute drive.
As you guys said, good photo opportunity.

Wonít be long, and they will all be gone.

I have also found out, that the Sutton family, will now be selling Fords.

Gents,

With a heavy heart, due to my work situation, I am now selling my one owner 59 FC Special.

So you guys or girls can look it up, here are the details.
ID. FC-225-24248-S
Trim. 271-632 Venetian turquoise & black
Paint. 256-2048 Pinecrest green
Insert. 256-2038 Duchess green
Chassis number. FC-41896-S
Engine number. L563312

A few points of interest.

The original owner & his wife purchased this new in 1959 in Maitland NSW.
They drove it home to Newcastle where it was used as a daily driver until both of them passed away.
They never owned another car except this 59 Holden.

Original sales receipt
Original key
Original paint (except for a minor repair in the 60ís to the passenger side boot/guard area)
There is also slight damage to the passenger front door the chap did in the 70ís on list front gate.
Original floor and boot rubbers
Original interior
Original spare wheel & tyre (only used a few times according to the original owner)
Optional extras purchased when new, sun visor, weather shield, large clip on rear view mirror, and rear grab rail, as the owners mother was elderly and needed grab rails to get in and out of the car.
The hood lining is green, and so is the back of the rear view mirror (Iíve never seen a colour coded rear view mirror??)
They grey dash top & interior A pillars are like new.
The seats are in good condition with wear to the side tops of the front seat.
Both ashtrays are as new.
Interior is bright & vibrant.
This car lived its whole life under cover.

This car has never had a heater fitted or a radio.
It is still basically the same as when they purchased it 61 years ago.

A real time capsule.
Personal items still in glove box & boot
Car has never been out of rego since 59.
I drive it a couple of times a week.
Drives well, and is a real head turner.

I have done king pins, rear shackle rubbers, tune up, service, and coolant.
Brakes were re done a few years ago, and are working great.

As I canít post images here, please contact me for further details & many images on

Rio,
Vern is right.

At your price range and even at $20k, you may be just paying to inherit huge problems.

My 1 owner FC will be available when I finish doing what Iím doing to it.

Just jump in, drive and enjoy and put a car cover on it.
Ric.

Hi Vern.
Will do, thank you for this.

What are the details off the carby you need?
Is there a model number on it?

Clay,
I have found a bloke who has a few old Carbies, he is happy to assist when he returns from his travels.

This is unusual for me, there isnít one part of a car Iím not familiar with, well thatís what I thought lol

I have put hundreds of kits through these carbies over my 45 years working on cars, but none of them ever had an issue, well except for the odd warped base, or needle and seat.

I guess it just goes to show how robust these very simple, but extremely efficient carbies are.

Gents,
Thank you again for your advice on all of this.

PS
My FC sat around in a mates local workshop for a few days while getting a pink slip, wheel alignment and tyres.
He said the interest the green FC generated was amazing lol.

Thanks for the explanation chaps.
Looks like my car is a late 58 build, 59 delivery.
