Konnichiwa! 1961 Holden EK Special Sedan
July 31, 2021
It took almost ten years searching, hoping and praying, but I have finally (with the help of Holden/WasabiCars fans) managed to track down an EK Holden that made Kyushu, Japan its home in around the year 2000. The grey-engined sedan was bought by its current owner from a seller in Tokyo, whereupon it received a restoration.
The EK Series EK was built from May 1961 to Jul 1962. This EK sedan was built in 1961. It has a 2,262cc inline 6 engine.
