Peter Pa­pa­geor­giou 1956 HOLDEN FJ VAN EX-PMG

‘POSTMAN PETE’ AND HIS BRIGHT RED EFFJAY PEEVEE WILL BE READY TO DE­LIVER WHEN THE CALL IS RE­CEIVED

Unique Cars - - GARAGE GURUS -

Icame across this car in ’97; it was for sale in Tas­ma­nia, and was still in use by a clean­ing busi­ness! Once I brought it home, I dis­cov­ered red flecks un­der the white paint. I got onto early-Holden ex­pert Don Lof­fler and he con­firmed it was an ex-Post­mas­ter Gen­eral van.

Nat­u­rally, once I knew this, I had to re­store it back to orig­i­nal, with all the cor­rect ex­tras that came on PMG vans. I sourced the ex­tra rear light, fuel filler-with-chain and an oil fil­ter, which the stan­dard FJ lacked. I even man­aged to find an orig­i­nal PMG hat! Some of the PMG vans ac­tu­ally came with no pas­sen­ger-side door but Tassie was a bit cold for that, I reckon!
