I agree the heading is misleading. 70 years ago would be the at release of the 48-215 in 1948 and I think they sold 112 in the 2 months before 1949!

From what I can find it would take until 1954 for Holden to be selling on average 4500 cars per month (54,000 for the year) and in 1955 it jumped to on average 5350 per month (63,800 total). But back then Holden would have also counted for 90% or more of the market.

In a growing market, February is still a sh*t result but as I said, lets wait a few months for everything to settle.
holden 90% of the market share never ,holden always had plenty of competition on the market from dodge ,ford, chevy, buicks and pomie cars ect in the early days
holden really have lost the plot, they are happy to sell boring cars similar looking to other makes.
i couldn't care less how many cars they sell , there not real aussie holdens anymore,
just another imported car

No worries Harry. I can remember when it seemed that 90% of the cars on the road were Holdens.

Good point, me either.
I remember the VF being advertised heaps back in 2013 and also a number of previous models with plenty of air time.
If ever there was a commodore that needed a massive ad campaign...... surely the ZB is it.

Well it the 20th of March and still no adds on any channel on the FTA networks. I have been alive a long time and ever since the HQ Holden came out we have been bombarded by adds but with the ZB it SILENCE.

Given Holden seems to be chasing the millennial market these days, their probably ignoring last century tech and focusing on twitface instead.
