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

Good morning all.

In a couple of weeks I will be listing my FC Special for sake on the net.

I would prefer that someone from this forum of the FB-EK forum buys it to keep it original.

I will be advertising it for $28,000 ONO.

As I canít post pics here.
Please txt me on 0409194725
Or email patrick.ryan@udtrucks.com.au
I will send through anything needed.

Please see first post for full car details.

Don't mean to be picky, but how is it a one owner if the original owner isn't around and you now own it? That makes it at least 2 owners. Or was the original owner a family member? If that's the case, it is still a one family car distinct from a "one owner".

Sorry, gee bee, I did not see this message.
I did modify my ad and mentioned I was in fact the second owner.

My ad should have read one owner before me.

Gents,

My FC is now sold, and will be living a happy and luxurious life in Victoria.

I wish the new owner all the very best.
Ric.
