Holden Model Codes Explained:

FJ And Later:

Submission by Dr Terry.

Hi waynef.For all model series prior to HD, GM-H used codes that were derived from their year of intended release. 48, obviously was released in 1948. 50 (FX Ute) was slightly late, being introduced in January 1951.GM-H used the table below to code each model. By using the table, it can be seen that FE = 56, FC = 58, EK = 61, EJ = 62 & EH = 63. What about FJ & FB ? Well FJ = 52, however the FJ’s release was delayed until ’53 and the same for FB = 59, the FB being released in January ’60, once again slightly delayed.0 = A
9 = B
8 = C
7 = D
6 = E
5 = F
4 = G
3 = H
2 = J ( I is not used )
1 = KA 48 would have been a GC (1948), and a 50, an FA (1950), if these codes were used.The EF was the code for the stillborn prototype slated for ’65 release. However the much more up-to-date HD replaced the EF, signifying the end of the use of this code system. Rumour persists that the HD code was derived from the then managing director’s initials (Mr David Hegland), in reverse. Dr Terry.

Hi jack mac, the 215 is standard GM model coding for a Standard sedan. These codes were used up until the HR series. So an HR Standard sedan is an HR-215. an EH Premier wagon is EH-239 etc.The full list goes like this.

215 = Standard sedan
225 = Special sedan
235 = Premier sedan
217 = Business sedan
219 = Standard wagon
229 = Special wagon
239 = Premier wagon
2104 = Panel van
2106 = UtilityAn FX ute is 50-2106.
