50-2106 Utility РReleased 1951 Holden began manufacturing the 50-2106, series utility in 1951, buyer demand was so strong that the waiting list for these vehicles rose to 70,000 orders by
the end of 1951; although Holden could not produce enough utes to satisfy this demand, sales of the ute, together with those for the 48-215 series sedan for that same year, took Holden to the top of the market for the
first time; in 1948 only one in eight Australians owned a car; by 1956 it was closer to one in four
