The Holden Grey motor is often referred to as the Holden side plate. The engine earned its name as they were painted grey from the factory. They came in 2 sizes, 138ci and 132ci. More engineering and after market modifications have gone into this engine than any other engine in Australian automotive history.

Rescuing, building, collecting & compiling the history of the GREY MOTOR HOLDEN ENGINE 1948-1962

Having a passion for the Holden Grey Motors, I am endeavouring to acquire any parts, memorabilia, information, documentation and photographs for a display of engines and to compile a book on subject.

The Grey Motor was originally developed for the automotive industry but was adapted for use in industrial applications including forklifts, compressors, welders, concrete agitators and marine - to name a few.

Any assistance you can supply in my endeavour to save the history of this engine, would be greatly appreciated.
