Pursuit 1964 EH Holden Patrol Car (based on EH Special Sedan)
edited by Quentin Christensen

Date of release: Sunday 18th July 2010
Version: 1.0
Original model: Aussie Muscle then Alex Isaac

Based on Alex Isaac's 2004 release "Holden EH '65 Blown". Unfortunately I was unable to obtain permission, as the contact details in the original readme are no longer in use, but I give full credit to Aussie Muscle for the original model and Alex Isaac's modifications. If this does reach either of you, please get in touch with me to let me know if you approve or not of me using your model!

I've tried to turn Alex's blown and lowered 2 door EH 'back' into a more stock 4 door EH. I've also given the car Special badging, chrome strips, a two tone paint job and damage. This police version contains a flashing blue roof light, and (optionally) police decals from different Australian and New Zealand police departments. I started to make a dash view, but I just couldn't get the hang of it, so I apologise for it's lack of inclusion.

The model has:
Triangles: 4237
Vertices: 3628

with 34 triangles and 18 vertices being used in the convertible part.

After trying to make the carp more realistic in the 'street' versions of this car, for this patrol car, I've tuned it up a bit again - it's still got a three speed gearbox, but you shouldn't have so much trouble catching the class B baddies in this cruiser.

The different skins included are:

car00.tga - Every car must have a car00.tga file in the car.viv, it is the police skin used on many of the tracks (like Hometown and Kindiak park) and also used on the 'foreign' tracks if you don't have the appropriate country TGA file.

This Victoria Police livery is similar to that used around the time. I couldn't find a picture of an EH, but I found a 1964 Studebaker with just the light on the roof (and a siren on the bonnet which I didn't model), with no other police markings or decals:
I also found a slightly later model Kingswood with Victoria Police markings, which is closer to what I've modeled:

uk.tga - used on Celtic Ruins and Durhan Road.

New Zealand police car. Note that the roof light on my car is blue rather than red:

fran.tga - used on Route Adonf

This is a slightly later New Zealand Ministry of Transport Police livery than the Germ.tga below, but could pass for a US "Black and White" cruiser.

germ.tga - used on Landstrasse

This car is based on a HR Holden used by New Zealand traffic police:

aus.tga - very disappointingly, I've never found a track this works on and I *have* the Australian version of the game. If anyone knows how to change the country code of a given track, please E-Mail me!

This livery is an Australian Federal Police livery:

Particular thanks to: for the Australian picutres and for the NZ pictures.

Information on the Holden EH:

Released 26th August 1963, in a period of 18 months more than 250,000 EH's were sold, making it the fastest selling Australian car ever.. Engine options ranged from a 2450cc 149 cubic inch six cylinder producing 75kW, up to a 2950cc 179 cubic inch six cylinder producing 86kW mated to either a three speed manual or three speed Hydramatic gear box. 0 - 100 km/h of the 149 engine was 15.8 seconds with a standing 400 metres 20.2 seconds (149)

The EH was produced in four distinct body styles. These were the sedan, station wagon, panel van and utility.

Of the four body styles available, the two passenger models were offered in three levels of refinement;

- "Standard" models were basic with no real badging and were mostly fitted with 149ci engines, rubber floors, no radio and generally one-tone acrylic paint jobs.
- "Special" models came equipped with chrome strips all round, carpet was an option, a console radio, special badges and two-tone paint jobs still in acrylic paint.
- "Premier" was the top of the range model with all the trimmings; metallic enamel paint, a centre console heater, upgraded interior, deep dish rims and examples these days are very rare.

The Standard EH was the same price as its predecessor (EJ) at AU £1051 ($2102).

The "S4 Special" was introduced in September 1963 and featured a larger fuel tank, hardened gears, metal lined brake shoes and a larger tailshaft. Six examples were produced at Holden's Dandenong plant in Melbourne and approximately 120 cars were built at Pagewood in Sydney.
