About the Holden EH

The EH was released in August 1963 replacing the Holden EJ series and was the first Holden to incorporate the new "Red" motor. This new "Red" motor featured 7 main bearings as opposed to 4 for the "Grey" motor and a larger capacity of 149ci (2400cc) or 179ci (2900cc). These motors were attached to "three speed" manual or "Hydramatic" three speed automatic transmissions with a column gear shifter; the three speed manual (column shift) gear box having no synchromesh on first gear which meant the driver had to be proficient in double de-clutching or riding second gear at slow speed. A total of 256,959 EH Holdens were produced and sold from 1963 to 1965, when the EH was replaced by the Holden HD series.The Holden EH range was offered in the following models: * Standard sedan * Standard Station Sedan (station wagon) * Special sedan * Special Station Sedan (station wagon) * S4 Special sedan * Premier sedan * Premier Station Sedan (station wagon) * Utility * Panel van
"Standard" models were basic with no real badging and were mostly fitted with 149ci engines, rubber floors, no radio and generally one-tone acrylic paint jobs. "Special" models came equipped with chrome strips all round, carpet was an option, a console radio, special badges and two-tone paint jobs still in acrylic paint. "Premier" was the top of the range model with all the trimmings; metallic enamel paint, a centre console heater, upgraded interior, deep dish rims and examples these days are very rare. The Standard EH was the same price as its predecessor (EJ) at AU02.The "S4 Special" was introduced in September 1963 and featured a larger fuel tank, hardened gears, metal lined brake shoes and a larger tailshaft. Six examples were produced at Holden's Dandenong plant in Melbourne and approximately 120 cars were built at Pagewood in Sydney.
