Nothing more, I was just passing and not parked very safely so didn't do much more than take a couple of photos.

Not a "glider kit", a basic "slider kit".

Nice one. Looks like new seating is in order too with the load on the tray.

Off topic, sort of. Recent trip to Canberra spotted a very nice original one owner FJ bought in 1955 by a little old lady (with proof of ownership) who drove it from the farm to town on a regular basis until she could no longer see out the back window. Now you can call me silly or worse but I thought it more important to see out the front window. Car was always garaged in the barn with rabbits fur cover and quilts when parked up.
Next was what was described as the only remaining, 1 of 4 ever built, prototype 48-215 (FX) Holdens. This is presented in pristene condition with a dor open, bonnet up and elevated over mirror tiles to show the sub frames painted in gloss black paint and the floor in gloss white paint. A fantastic display but I cannot remember if any really survived and that all four were scraped due to damage.
Anyway I have some great pics of them both on the desktop if interested.

The car that could be called the first prototype Holden was a styling exercise by the Pontiac branch of General Motors that was rejected by management. It was seen on a visit to USA by Sir Laurence Hartnett then General Manager of General Motors Australia on a visit to America. I read that the next three prototypes were built in America after Sir Laurence said the car would be suitable as an Australian car. After that they were all built in Australia. There has been a lot of controversy over the years as to which was the first 48/215 built in Australia with different "experts" claiming different things. One widely held theory is that the car with body number 4 was the first Holden released. The previous ones were probably used for testing until written off.

Anyway, whack up the pictures and we will all see one of the very first Holdens.
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!
