Holden's history in Australia
After the war, Holden returned to producing vehicle bodies for several car brands including Buick, Chevrolet and Vauxhall. In 1948, the company finally achieved its long-term goal of manufacturing the first all-Australian motor vehicle. On November 29, Prime Minister Ben Chifley unveiled the first Holden 48-215, which became affectionately known as the "FX". The FX, was a robust and economical family sedan, designed for the Australian environment. The price was set at $733 (including tax), which represented a staggering 94 weeks wages for the average worker at the time. Despite this, the car was an immediate success and Holden could not satisfy demand quickly enough. 18,000 people had signed up and paid their deposit without even having seen the vehicle.
