A leaked photo published on social media appears to show the final Australian-made Holden ahead of the plant’s closure on October 20.
The image features a Commodore sedan as a bare metal shell in the manufacturer’s Elizabeth plant, pictured with a sign signifying the car as the “Last Holden Manufactured in Australia”.
Holden declined to comment on the photo, which was not officially released by the brand.
It will officially produce its final cars on the morning of Friday October 20, when the final vehicles roll off its production line at a ceremony exclusive to Holden employees.
It is possible that the factory has assembled a final batch of bare bodies which will be painted, mated with driveline hardware and dressed with a full complement of parts next week.
Ford insiders leaked images of the final Falcons before the brand’s Broadmeadows closure 2016, working outside the blue oval’s official media strategy.
