When I was a kid, we went to Australia and when my dad saw 4 w.d. Holden (Chevy) station wagons he went ape. That was 1955 and I still have it, with it's huge straight six truck engine, enormous radiator and after market split intake manifold with two big S.U. carbs. Two years ago, it underwent a ten month, body - off total restoration. Two weeks ago, a guy in a new Suburban offered to trade me straight across.
