Celebrate the birth of Holden, and Australia’s automotive industry, with a drive down memory lane! Biante Model Cars is proud to announce the Holden 48-215 FX in Gawler Cream, celebrating 75 years of an AUSSIE AUTO ICON. An absolute must-have for any serious Aussie car collection, this is your opportunity to own an authentic reproduction of the first Australian-made car to roll off the production line!
The limited-edition Holden 48-215 FX, with number plate ‘1948’, in the popular 1:64 scale is a piece of motoring history! Spectacularly replicated, boasting an immaculate sealed diecast body, this model car boasts a hand-finished exterior in the authentically-replicated, original Gawler Cream colour!
The 48-215 FX in Gawler Cream was the first car to bear the Holden name, driven off the Plant 1 assembly line by General Motors Managing Director Harold Bettle and Chief Engineer Russ Begg. The Prime Minister at the time, Ben Chifley, unveiled the car on 29th November 1948 in Seine Blue, exclaiming “It’s a beauty!” The Holden 48-215 FX represented the aspirations of millions of Australians – forever linked to our history, culture & sense of national pride.
