2021 Holden: Australian Icon set of 5

In 1944, the Chifley government invited General Motors, USA to collaborate with General Motors-Holdens to build a family car for Australian conditions. After several years of prototyping and testing, the first car wholly manufactured in Australia was revealed on 29 November 1948, the Holden 48-215, which became known as the FX, was an economical mid-sized sedan, hard-wearing for Australian conditions and an instant hit with the public.

By 1958, Holden had captured what was to be its highest market share, 50.3 per cent of national car sales. By 1969 around two million Holden cars were sold. From 1970s to 2008, another five million vehicles were added to Holdens production tally. Holden ended its Australian manufacturing operations on 20 October 2017, after constructing more than 7.6 million vehicles for Australia and the world.
