The FJ, of monocoque construction, broadly followed the silhouette of its predecessor, but featured a bolder horizontal styled front grille, along with comfort and decoration upgrades in a new sedan model named the ‘Holden Special’. Originally specified as 60 bhp (45 kW) achieved at 3,800 rpm,[2] the claimed maximum power output from the six-cylinder engine was increased to 65 bhp (48 kW) achieved at 4,000 rpm.

The sedan, in Standard, Business and Special trim levels,[3] and a coupe utility were announced in October 1953 and were followed by a Panel van derivative in December of that year.[4] A wagon prototype was built but the bodystyle was not put into production.[5] In 1954, Holden’s first exports began with sales of the FJ in New Zealand.[6]

In 1955 the car underwent a mild interior facelift for the Holden Special sedan, along with a variation in paint and trim options. The FJ series was progressively replaced by models from the Holden FE series from July 1956 to May 1957[7] with a total of 169,969 examples produced.
