Duncan Heritage Holden Collectible Yo-Yo
Love yoyos and love Holdens? Well we've got something for you!
The Duncan Heritage Holden Collection features 6 models of classic Australian Holden cars each in a different colour yoyo!
Based on the classic Duncan ProYo, the yoyo itself has a wooden-axle and is great for older style looping tricks, such as walk-the-dog and around the world!
Note that you must break in the wooden axle before play - ie. remove the string, wrap it around the wooden axle, then pull it off. Repeat this process around 10 times - this will slightly sand the surface of the axle - getting it ready for play!
These are collectable yoyos, so grab the whole set!
The range includes:
1948 HOLDEN 48-215 SEDAN (BLUE YOYO)
Following four years of intensive design and development by General Motors Holden, Australia’s first series production car became a reality on November 29th, 1948 when Prime Minister Ben Chifley unveiled the new model to an eager public, declaring “She’s a Beauty”. “Australia’s Own Car” proved remarkably popular, cementing top spot in passenger car sales by 1950.
1958 HOLDEN FC SPECIAL SEDAN (WHITE YOYO)
A true classic, the FC was a mild facelift on the FE series, but achieved a more harmonious look, with new grille, chrome fins and - on the Special - chrome side mouldings allowing for stylish two-tone paintwork. Holden reached a milestone during the FC's production run, with the 500,000th example rolling off the production line on October 22, 1958.
1963 HOLDEN EH SEDAN (GREEN YOYO)
Heralded as the most dramatic new model since the FX, the hugely popular EH Holden became the fastest-selling Australian car ever. In just 18 months of manufacture, buyers snapped up a record 256,959 units. “Power Swept” styling gave the car neater, more modern lines helping it achieve universal appeal and relegating it to one of the most loved Holden’s of all time.
1968 HOLDEN HK MONARO GTS 327 (BLACK YOYO)
The first Holden to wear the Monaro Badge, the 1968 HK Monaro, was a 2-door fastback emulating the style of American muscle cars. Designed to help Holden stake its place at the racetrack the HK Monaro GTS 327 proved its worth, not only winning the coveted Bathurst trophy but also finishing in first, second and third place.
1976 HOLDEN HX SANDMAN PANEL VAN (RED YOYO)
If any Australian car embodied the sensational 70’s, it was Holden’s Sandman range of utilities and panel vans. Instantly identified by its bold graphics, including a special Sandman script emblazoned across the tail-gate, it was aimed squarely at a younger crowd, with features including sports instrumentation and steering wheel, bucket seats and rally road wheels sourced from the Monaro. A true Australian cultural icon.
1977 HOLDEN LX TORANA SS A9X (YELLOW YOYO)
The legendary LX Torana SS A9X was an homologation special that still evokes one of the greatest eras for fans of the General in touring car racing. Built in limited numbers the A9X option was available on both the SL/R 5000 sedan and SS hatchback LX Torana’s. It proved its muscle-car credentials – winning the 1979 Bathurst race by a record six laps.
