Clearly the previous pics have been too easy for you guys. You all certainly know your cars.

Here's one that will remind you of a whole bunch of different cars from the era.

Hint - It's from the GM stable.

Sorry I don't have much luck with sizing the pics.

No...……... but I suspect that would have been an influence on the finished design.

I did say it will remind you of a bunch of different cars.

But this is a fun way to get to know some.

OK, so this one is a 1956 FJ Holden (GM). It probably looks so familiar, because much of the panel work came from existing USA cars. This was the second mass produced car in Australia, by Australians. Given that in 1956 the whole country had a population of less than 9.5 million, it was quite an achievement to develop a car manufacturing capability. Was pretty basic though, no turn signals, tail light had to be turned on manually by a switch at the light and air conditioning was a window crank.


Sorry guys, didn't mean to hijack your thread. Back to the US cars.

I don't even have a clue. Maybe 30s or 40s. Possibly 50s. But you've stumped me, Mike.

I agree the 1930's seems about right but I'm thinking a larger, more luxurious brand than Chevy. Initially I was thinking Packard but they were not a part of GM.
