My 1956 Chev is an aussie built. The ID tag was riveted in the engine bay whilst the Vin tag was riveted to left lower door pillar. No chassis numbers though even after sand blasting.

I happen to have the Technical Specifications book for the Aussie made 1956 Chevrolet by General Motors Holden. As you will see at the bottom of Page 2, there is no actual chassis stamping. You have an engine stamp, vin tag on left door pillar and firewall body id tag.

There’s a number stamped onto my Melbourne-made ‘57 RHD frame ... behind the front l/h wheel. Maybe plants about the country did them differently.

Were all the parts needed for assembly of TriFives there in AUS manufactured in AUS (including frames, engines, etc?)? or were some parts provided from the US??

For CKDs – frames were made here. Also seat upholstery was made here – because they were all leather!

The distinctive differences were that the Aus 57`s were 210`s instead of Belairs and they all had 55/56 double hump dash, I6 engines and three speed column.
Of course there were some small exceptions.

CKD means 'knock down kit' doesn't it? Implying to me that *most parts* to build the car were supplied by Chevrolet to Australia as a 'kit' for assembly there, so the sheet metal and small parts were delivered to AUS in 'kit form'? It would be very interesting to see the 'form' of the kit delivered to AUS...

Do any of you there have a photo of such a kit?? (ie. before assembly)?

All of the CKDs would have been the same spec, excepting any dealer add-ons, like a heater.

But yeah, the lower number of fully imported cars were a different set of specs.

CKD stands for Complete Knock Down.

My seats were leather, and strangely enough it also had a bolt through the B pillar that mounted the upper seat belt, which was also used on some early Holdens
