Holden has paid tribute to Jack Rawnsley, the last remaining
engineer to have worked on the very first Holden - the 48-215 - who
passed away yesterday aged 99.

Mr Rawnsley will be remembered as one of a small team of Holden's best
engineers sent to Detroit in 1945 to develop the foundations for
"Australia's Own Car".


Upon his return home in 1948, he was responsible for ensuring the car
designed, engineered and built in Australia was tailored for the
country’s harsh local conditions - something that Holdens have been
known for ever since.


Holden Chairman and Managing Director Mike Devereux said Mr Rawnsley
was considered Holden royalty by employees past and present.


“Jack and his colleagues were true pioneers and paved the way not just
for Holden’s success, but the Australian automotive industry as a
whole,” Mr Devereux said.


“With Jack’s sad passing we lose a cherished link with our past.





“But a daily reminder of his extraordinary work is his legacy of
designing, engineering and manufacturing the best possible cars for
Australian motorists.”

Holden extends its deepest sympathies to Mr Rawnsley’s daughter Brenda, son John, extended family members and friends.
