This finely detailed 1/43rd scale model from Trax accurately depicts the uniquely Australian top of the line Chrysler wagon. The AP stood for Australian Production and if your family was lucky enough to own one of these luxury load luggers you’d certainly stand out from the crowd.

Driven by Spencer Martin, this British Racing Green Holden 48-215 is a wonderful rendition of the classic Holden “Humpy” in 1/43rd scale. Apart from being Australia’s most popular road car of the time, the Holden also saw extensive service on race tracks across the country. Race to get yours now.

Finished in an impressive candy apple red, this 1/43rd scale replica depicts a uniquely Australian utility that was the “big brother” to the Holden of the time. Larger and more powerful than the Holden, this Chevrolet would have cut a fine figure going about its workhorse duties, delivering not only its payload, but a certain level of prestige along the way.
Finished in a popular gold with a cream roof, this HK Premier represented the upmarket variant of the first in this series of larger Holdens that offered many firsts for the brand, including the option of a 307 cubic inch Chevrolet V8. The HK proved to be a popular model, bringing a wider array of variants and options to the Australian market. This 1/43rd scale replica is sure to be popular amongst Holden fans.
With the HG series, here we have the last in this body style from Holden. The HG offered the Australian made V8 engines as options - in either 253 or 308 cubic inch configuration. The Kingswood was Holden’s most popular model and this 1/43rd scale wagon variant in green reminds us of a time before the term SUV was even thought about.
If custom is your preference, this 1/43rd scale wild wagon will really stand out from the crowd. Featuring a mega horsepower engine and wide tyres on mag wheels, this tyre shredding burnout machine gives new meaning to the term “Purple Haze”.

Finished in Killarney Green this 1/43rd scale model really captures the look of the ever popular Ford Customline.
