Thanks

I couldnít remember if they came out of mine or I pick them up somewhere

I guess only sedan drivers make the passengers panic Smiley

Interesting. My EK wagon doesn't have any provision for panic straps, but my HR Prem wagon seems to. I think the hoodlining in the HR was replaced, so can't see the top mounts. What I can see though is the two holes for the press-stud/button, one of which has the stud/button still in it. The two straps are missing though.

Did GMH introduce panic straps for wagons sometime after EK, or were they a Prem fitment?

Harv,

Just trying to remember road trips in the '70s.  I think the family's HR Special wagon had panic straps.

Remember: if your Holden's not leaking oil, it doesn't have any.

AFAIK panic straps (officially passenger assist straps) were fitted to all Special sedans from FE to HR & all Special & Premier wagons from EH to HR. Wagons prior to EH & all standards & business models missed out.

No evidence of panic straps in my 1957 FE special station sedan.

Interesting question and one I have considered myself. Dr Terry; why do you reckon they left them out of wagons? My EK didn't have them fitted either but an FB wagon I wrecked a long time ago had them fitted from memory, interesting. Al

Maybe they considered the wagons C-pillar too thin in some models to fit them. Good question though.
