    Hi , i own a 1974 HQ Holden Belmont with a 202 low kilometer recon engine with stellite seat cylinder head as it was going to be converted to gas BUT never did ,the color of this car is Chrome Yellow it looks great ,with Brown upholstery. The car is still shiny with very minimal rust in a couple of the usual places as the doors were painted internally with grease many years ago , the upholstery is tired and mechanically it needs a kit through the steering box and intermediate shaft , this car is Straight and is ideally suited to some one who is skilled to do a full restoration and bring this appreciating Australian heritage vehicle back to new condition . Am guessing it is worth between $3000 and $5500 would like to sell it but not sure of what is a realistic and fair price ?????

    I served an apprenticeship in Fitting & Turning/Toolmaking at the Woodville plant S.A. commencing 1962, where cast iron dies were hand-crafted for production purposes. It may be of interest to learn how G.M.H. engineering arrived at it’s model descriptions on the early 50’s/60’s series. An alpha/numero system was formulated by that department as indicated below.

    AB CD EF GH JK (the letter ‘I’ was omitted).
    0 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1

    By linking the intended release date (which could only be approximate) with each corresponding letter, the classification of each model then became as follows:

    52-FJ, 56-FE, 58-FC, 59-FB, 61-EK, 62-EJ and 63-EH.

    As can be seen, there was no FX – it was simply a 48-215 (the 215 was Engineers coding for a Sedan), and there were similar follow-on numerals utilised for Utility, Station Sedan and Panel Van options. For tooling purposes, all dies produced in the Toolroom for an EH Sedan were therefore branded as ‘EH-215’ and so on.

    A different coding system was then devised for models HK onwards.
