1952 Holden Sedan

 It was in average condition.

The car was purchased in 1987 and had been stored in a shed for 17 years.  It was in average condition.  Restoration started in early 1988 and taken back to bare metal.  All mechanicals were reconditioned by myself, including body and paint.  Trim work was done by Boyce Motor Trimmers in original leather colour.

The car has modifications:  Engine – ported head with large valves, 9.5 compression ratio, twin Stromberg carbys and Speco headers.  Diff and gearbox standard. 14 by 5 inch wheels.  12 volt electrical system.

The car was completed in 1989 and won its class at the Bacchus Marsh Nationals.
