The Holden FX, (formally known as the Holden 48-215) was manufactured by General
Motors Holden between November 1948 and October 1953. Development of the 48-215
began in 1944 based on a design that was originally penned in the United States by
Chevrolet. The term FX came into common use later to describe models with a new
telescopic shock absorber front suspension introduced in 1953. The FJ followed and was
based on the 48-215 series. Its design broadly followed the silhouette of its predecessor and
was the second model of the 'all Australian car' manufactured by Holden. The FJ sedan was
manufactured in Standard, Business and Special trim levels. A coupe utility was announced
in October 1953 which was followed by a Panel van derivative in December of that year.
