History of this Vehicle

 

1928 - 19??

 

Originally bought at The Brisbane Show as a wedding present and was driven by the lady until her death.

.

19?? - 1996

 

Used daily by university student who sold it on to a person living at Moura Q.

 

1996 - Today

 

Purchased in January 1996 with Qld vintage plates.

 

The vehicle was complete and going, but not roadworthy with many problems.

 

Repairs include; Sleeving one cylinder; Diff' had ground ball bearings rolling around in it; Shock Absorbers; Brakes; and many other smaller problems.

 

The paint was left alone and believed to be fairly close to original.

 

The vehicle was put on NSW club plates in 1997, and has covered quite a few miles since then.
