Technical specifications, photos and description:
This 48-215 Holden is in outstanding condition. The bodywork was completed in December 2016 after a two year restoration process. The restoration included re-chromed bumpers. over-riders. door handles. grille. perfect stainless steel hub caps. complete rubber kit. new windscreens and other cosmetic items. Mechanically. everything needed was replaced including brake cylinders. rebuilt carburetor. wiper mechanism. new exhaust. new tyres. petrol tank and lines etc. The vehicle passed Victorian Road Worthy inspection upon completion on first attempt.
I acquired this vehicle in Colac. Victoria. in July 2014. At the time the car looked impressive—no visual rust or prior repairs evident. It had been partly restored in the late 1970s. including interior. In January 2015 the car's body was disassembled and parts and body were sanded back to bare metal (photos of the work can be provided). Minor rust. however. was located inside the sill panels which were replaced by reproduction units from Rare Spares. Further minor cosmetic restoration and improvements can still be achieved by replacing side glass and quarter windows. I have left these items in place as they are original to the car including the last registration sticker from South Australia. dated back to 1977.
This classic. early production 48-215. hosts the original and desirable rear door locks positioned at the back corners. which were only available in 1948-49 built cars. as well as early production cluster and other items unique to these early examples.
The vehicle is equipped with its original 6-volt Delco Remy electrical system and has no seat belts and holes anywhere in the body. The only non-genuine items are the retro fitted ‘Harley Davidson' sourced indicators which were not placed on the fenders. thus not interfering with the original panels. They can easily be removed if desired.
