HOLDEN FC RETRO
The Holden FC Retro series is an automobile which was produced by Holden in Australia from 1958 to 1960. Introduced on 6 May 1958, the FC is a facelifted and improved version of the Holden FE series, which it replaced.
The FC range consisted of four door sedans in three trim levels, five door station wagons, marketed as “Station Sedans” in two trim levels, a two-door coupe utility and a three-door panel van. The seven models were : Holden Standard Sedan, Holden Standard Station Sedan, Holden Business Sedan, Holden Special Sedan, Holden Special Station Sedan, Holden Utility and Holden Panel Van.
Although the FC series was substantially the same as the FE, it featured revisions to the radiator grille, body trim and interior. Minor mechanical improvements were also made, with changes to the engine, suspension, brakes, gear change linkages and the steering box. The Utility now featured painted rather than chromed grille and headlight rims, as did the Panel Van.
All FC models were powered by a 132-cubic-inch (2.2 L) six-cylinder engine producing 72 brake horsepower (54 kW). This engine was carried over from the FE series, although the camshaft was altered, the compression ratio was increased and torque was improved. The interior appearance was improved by a new instrument panel, narrow seat coverings, and two-tone finish. GM-H didn’t stop there, and added extra “hooding” around the instruments to help cut down on distracting reflections.
After a production run of 191, 724 vehicles, the FC was replaced by the Holden FB series in January 1960.
