  Ford E-Series - Wikicars
The Ford E-Series, formerly named and also known as the Econoline or "Club Wagon", is a line of fullsize vans (both cargo and passenger) and truck chassis from the Ford Motor Company.
The first E-Series was based on the compact Ford Falcon, sized roughly to compete with the 1961 Chevrolet Corvair Sportvan and Volkswagen Type 2, which was 172.3 in long.
Over the next six years, the "Big Three" (GM, Chrysler and Ford) would all redesign their vans, with hoods gradually evolving to a short conventional truck-like hood, and evolving from being based on compact cars to using components from full-sized pickup trucks.

 Bambooweb: Holden
The Commodore was originally based on a design by Opel but went through such extensive revisions (including several generations of engines, enlargements, suspension design changes, and complete body restyles) that this "grandfather's axe" of a car must now be regarded as a unique vehicle.
At this time, Holden were also dealing with a number of severe and long-standing cost and build quality issues (as were other car companies in Australia and around the world).
