The FJ Ute

The Shop

Welcome to the artomobile Shop!

All designs are hand painted. The use of monochromatic colours and simple graphic representation give it the signature look for which the artist is known. Important to keep in mind is that all images are hand painted and no two paintings are alike in color. They are all delivered in a round post pack protected with acid free paper. At this stage, framed paintings can only be delivered within Singapore.

The FJ Ute

150.00

An Australian legend, the FJ coupe utility was announced in October 1953 and quickly became one of the most iconic of the commercial vehicles range.
 
The first post-WWII ute made entirely locally were a common site in rural Australia with their trays filled with wheat and wool. The hardworking FJ embodies all things great about Australia during this era. The two door ute with its beautifully rounded features, a strengthened floor and folded down tailgate, was built for the Aussie terrain, making its way around farm paddocks.
 
Laurence Harnet from GM-H wanted to break away from the American market and wrote a letter to the Chairman of the Government’s Secondary Industries Commission, John Klunder Jensen, requesting the manufacture of a ‘complete Australian car’. The letter expressed, “By designing a car for Australia as we propose to do, the product will better fill the needs of the country.” Not only was it successful here but it is also the first Holden to be exported to New Zealand from 1954 - plenty of wool to cart around there…
 
The FJ went out of production in 1959 but by the end of the 50’s, production had reached beyond half a million cars, effectively seeing one in three Australians driving a Holden product.
