Holden history: from the beginning to the end

General Motors has sold cars in Australia since 1902, setting up an Oldsmobile dealer north west of Adelaide – which continues to sell Holdens today. However, the US giant first became involved with Holden in 1924. At the time Holden was a motor body builder, fitting its designs to other car brand’s chassis, graduating to this new fangled form of transportation after starting as a saddlery in 1856.
