From the manufacturer:
The Panel Van features the “Standard” level of trim, as it was the only trim available. The engine will also feature the 149ci six with the manual transmission, as almost all of the Panel Vans sold had this configuration.
Released in 1963, the EH has was one of Australia’s most popular selling cars. With a new engine, clever styling changes, and competitively priced, the EH was the fastest selling car in Australia. Catering to a wide audience, the EH was available in nine different models. Two of those models were commercial vehicles, the Utility and Panel van, both sharing the rear styling from the previous EJ model.
The new powerplant, dubbed the ’Red’ engine was more powerful and economical than the previous ‘Grey’ engine, it also required less maintenance. The 149cui delivering 100hp (up 33% on the previous ‘Grey’ engine), while the 179cui delivered 115hp (up 50%). Although both of these engines, as well as the Hydramatic transmission were available on the Utility and Panel van. Almost all of the models sold were 149cui with the manual transmission. But they were designed to be sent to work, with durable laminated hardwood trays and rated to half a ton carrying capacity. The cars even featured the removal of the drivers side door lock as a safety feature when driver was making deliveries.
This is the first model of the Classic Carlectables Tastes of Australia Collection. The Tastes of Australia Collection will be releasing other Classic Carlectables models in their traditional branding colours.
