    Peter Eames' Holden bodied car has several significant variation from the American Willys. Holden was (like Fisher Body) a coach builder that moved into the automotive field and was eventually acquired by General Motors. As well as building all of the bodies for GM in Australia Holden continued to build some of the Willys bodies while T J Richards (which later was absorbed by Chrysler) built the rest which included five window coupes.
    Note that the door upper frame is a simple channel section rather than part of the door skin stamping as per the US cars. Not quite so obvious in the photo is the fact that there is no rocker panel below the door as the door skin rolls under at the lower edge and extends to the body of the body. On this car the running boards have been replaced with a fabricated piece that covers the frame which would otherwise be exposed below the body.
    This photo of my old shop truck shows the variations a little better.

    And here is a shot of one of the TJ Richards built five windows that used sedan doors

    The 55 Chevy in the near lane is driven by the late Roger Gustin who ran the car with his brothers Bill and Phil.
