Holden EH

THROWBACK AD: Holden EH

1585

 The Holden EH was the best priced six-cylinder sedan in Australia at the time

The EH Holden was produced between 1963 and 1965, and replaced the similarly styled EJ series. The Holden EH had a number of improvements over its predecessor, including more powerful engines, with the base 2400cc engine producing 100hp and the bigger 2900cc churning out 115hp.

The 2400cc engine was mated to either a three-speed manual or three-speed column shift automatic. The bigger engine was only offered with the auto, but the manual came later.

The Holden EH series was available in sedan and wagon body styles, and three trim levels were available: Standard, Special and Premier.

The Premier was the Holden EH equivalent of today’s Holden Calais, and was fitted with luxuries such as carpet, bucket leather seats, armrests a demister and additional lashings of chrome.

The Holden EH was the best priced six-cylinder car in Australia at the time, and Holden’s marketing department at the time threw every superlative they could’ve thought of at the ad.

That elegant styling…
