History of this Vehicle


1926 - 1984

History unknown.


1984 - Today

The vehicle was in completely dismantled, and in woeful condition when purchased, requiring a major remake and rebuild.


The restoration took 10 years, and necessitated all new timber work, new metal panels, and mechanicals with all major work carried out by the owner.


The car is now a very attractive and reliable club car, which is a great testament to the owner's ability,

and perseverance.


Chronicle of frustration by the owner.

"2 engines cooked, totally destroyed 2 heads with at least 6 cracks in each pot, everything I touched was buggered - and I mean really buggered - had to buy another motor hoping that it was ok to restore.

It was, thank God.  Someone should have lined me up against the wall and fired."
