In the file is a Concessional License inspection sheet from which the car passed with a tick in every box. A concern with any English import is rust. The owner advises that the car has no significant rust, and there are sections of the underbody which have been plated. Only a couple of very small areas of rust are visible on the exterior. The paintwork in several sections is in need of attention, with some flaking and poor touch-ups. As you can see from the photos, the car is not unsightly, but a buyer is likely to want to rectify the paint issues.
A couple of the pieces of aluminium external trim have small dents. Hardware such as the bumpers, grilles, badges, etc are good. The rear hatch struts need re-gassing. The owner says everything works and the car has been very reliable and properly maintained. The interior of the car would benefit from tidying up also. Nothing appears to be missing or broken. The front seats have been replaced with Recaro-style sports seats, however the original seats are to be supplied with the car.
The owner advises there was no change made to the seat runners. The car starts easily and drives well. It shows 25, miles on the odometer, presumablyThis is a very rare version of an increasingly desirable and valuable model. It is believed there would be less than half a dozen Tourings in Australia.
Only five are currently registered in the UK. Overseas a Touring has long been more valuable than a sedan and values are strong, particularly in continental Europe. The owner has priced the car with consideration of the fact that cosmetic work is required. Brought to Perth by first owner from the UK; I am the 3rd owner. Approx ,km from new. First model has slotted metal grille instead of later plastic grille and corrugated panels to lower part of doors.
Engine and mechanical parts similar to a Very well kept car from a Fiat enthusiast who has owned the car for 18 years. Always properly maintained, garaged, etc. Very straight and presentable car.

Located Mindarie, Perth, WA. Values of these last of the Rs have been steadily increasing in the past couple of years. Beautifully built, powerful and well equipped. Peak of the Rs. This car has known history, with lots of documentation. It was delivered new in Perth by Diesel Motors. Three previous owners, current owner has had it for six years. He has always lavished attention on it. Most recent was reconditioned transmission late last year.
The car has always been extremely reliable. Everything works as it should on the car, even the clock. Air con was overhauled a year and a half ago. Wheels have been refurbished and look perfect. Dash top has been replaced, new rubbers for doors, boot, soft top installed. Brakes rebuilt, new shock absorbers, new radiator, etc. There are all the books with the car, plus a file of work carried out by current and previous owner and first aid kit, etc.
The car presents very nicely inside and out. Metallic burgundy with black interior colour scheme suits it well, far better than the common white or grey. Only criticism would be the paint on the front — several small stone chips, plus the bonnet is a very slightly different shade of burgundy — has been painted before for stone chips and has faded differently. Also a couple of small marks on bumper rubbers.
All lights, chrome, etc, are good. Leather is excellent as is carpet, including in the boot. Starts easily from cold, no smoke or anything untoward. Definitely does not need restoring! A factory RHD car delivered new in Australia when a Mercedes was an unusual car, this vehicle has been extensively restored. The mechanicals have all been done and a few years ago the bodywork and paint were redone. The chrome, lights and other ancillaries present very well. The previous owner had vinyl upholstery installed over the original cloth upholstery.
The car runs well but is unregistered. Converted to 12 volt.

Member for Bendigo East Jacinta Allan said it was unfair to apply the new code to the Bendigo project retrospectively. The original timeline for the project said construction would begin in December.
A heritage adviser and member of the Bendigo Historical Society, he said the idea to start the calendar followed on from a chance meeting with Jim Hogan from the Shamrock Hotel. An avid collector, Mr Mulqueen selects from his own collection and other records to create his calendar. None of the six tenders, two of which were local, were acceptable.
The Department of Defence said no tenderers that submitted proposals will be excluded from any future sale process. The house was put on the Commonwealth Heritage List inand the sale of the 19th-century building will be subject to a Heritage Management Plan. The Fortuna Coalition, which has been campaigning for community involvement or ownership, is pushing for a whole-of-site development.
However the high wheelers and veterans wanted to show up the historic racing cars and tried to set new lap records! It was great fun circulating around the track in front of an appreciative crowd. It was interesting to see the competitive edge come out in the buggy drivers and a certain Hotchkiss driver. I think that the crowd was quite surprised by how well the veterans circulated. So our moment of glory was over and the racing resumed. I have to say, that over the weekend there were a large number of efficiently run racing and regularity events, providing terrific entertainment.
We were particularly impressed with the performance of the veteran T Fords of Kevyn and Andrew Brown in their regularity events. Andrew Brown s car in particular is a wolf in sheep s clothing and goes much faster than appearances would suggest.

All told it was a great weekend which can be thoroughly recommended and thanks must go to Paul Goethel for having the foresight to invite us and provide us with entry tickets and a great display venue. Also thanks to the other members who made their vehicles available.
I think that Paul would like to have more veterans along at next year s event as the veterans and buggies in particular provided a lot of interest. This can only do well for the promotion of veteran vehicle movement. The Windshield Wiper From Paul Daley There are so many things we never think about, taking it for granted, for instance, that when it s rainy or hailing, our windshield wipers will keep the windshield sufficiently clean for us to keep motoring.
But windshield wipers weren t always a given. Early vehicles didn t have them. After all, if a horse-drawn carriage didn t need them, why did a horseless one?
Well, because a driver needed some protection from those gal-darned gnats, for one, and because a driver who got up some speed needed a windbreak, and because new-fangled drivers really did need to see where they were pointing their cars. Besides, if a horse came upon an immovable object, it d usually stop contrary to the drivers wishes. Cars didn t provide this second opinion. Early drivers were pretty resourceful when it came to keeping their cars running. In lieu of the yet-to-be-invented windshield wiper, they are said to have used plug tobacco, a piece of potato, carrot or onion, or most anything else they could remember to bring along to keep their small piece of vertical glass wiped down during inclement weather.
They must have tried rags or sponges, too, before squeegees available for less than a dollar became the tool of choice. The first known inventor of an actual windshield wiper was Irish-born inventor J. Apjohn, who, indeveloped a UK-patented method of moving two brushes top to bottom to clear the windshield. As so often happens, however, another inventor was working on a solution about the same time and is credited with the first American wipers and the first operational windshield wiper.
Mary Anderson hailed from Alabama. On a visit to New York City in she watched a trolley car driver struggle to keep his windshield clear during a sleet storm.
The driver could leave the glass down and get cold and drenched or stop the car to clear the glass. Either way riders weren t happy with the results. So Mary came up with a swinging arm fitted with a rubber blade that the driver could operate via inside lever. A spindle passed through a hole in the frame of the windshield, connecting the external rubber wiping blade and the interior handle.
A counterweight and spring held the external blade to the glass. Mary Anderson, filed the first patent for a car window cleaning device in November Anderson was granted her first patent for an automatic car window cleaning device controlled inside the car, called the windshield wiper. It was a crude contraption, operated via a lever within the car. The driver had to manually crank the thing while driving, a concept that caused many skeptics to deem dangerous and distracting.
Still, it was preferable to opening the car s door and driving with one s head out, something Anderson witnessed herself. The windshield wiper was born. In she tried to sell the rights through a noted Canadian firm, but they rejected her application, 14 saying we do not consider it to be of such commercial value as would warrant our undertaking its sale.
After the patent expired in and the automobile manufacturing business grew exponentially, windshield wipers using Anderson s basic design became standard equipment. InCadillac became the first car manufacturer to adopt them as standard equipment.

Anderson s invention of the windshield wiper is mentioned in Season 7, Episode Well, a woman also invented the windshield wiper! Which goes great with another male invention, the car!

June Brass Notes The image of the Rolls-Royce as an air compressor is interesting and no doubt has caused considerable discussion.
It is probably one of the world s better known compressors. When new, the car was used as a RR Company vehicle by several of the senior employees. By aroundthe owner of the car was one E. He was the son of George Burt, a founding partner in the contracting engineering firm of Mowlem, Freeman and Burt, and the nephew of Mowlem s wife.
The firm became one of the largest firms in the construction industry, and I believe remains in business today. George Burt inherited the business, and in due course, so too had E.

The Silver Ghost, Chassiswas factorytested in mid-juneand despatched to have single-seater coachwork fitted by Hooper and Co. It succumbed in the glut of Rolls-Royce cars in the immediate post-war period, with many cars gifted by wealthy owners to the War Office being sold at auction.
In the early s, it was purchased by E. Burt, but soon became the compressor of the Mowlem business. It s worth by the early s would have been minimal compared to a new model, so its conversion to a compressor was probably justified on that basis. Note the dual radiators fitted in tandem. Ian Irwin It is with sad regret to advise of the passing of Ruth Orde. Ruth along with William Bill joined the club in the late fifties and were seen many times speeding along happily in the Red Itala or putting along peacefully in the Orient Buckboard and quite often in the early days with one, two or all of their three children aboard.
Rain hail or shine Ruth never complained and took it in her stride and we are sure she loved every minute of it maybe not the rain! She made many friends many no longer with us within the club and these friendships have remained to this day.
She surely will be missed. My thanks to the VCCA members that attended the funeral. Wanted Daryl Meek asked whether anyone could recommend a technician for magneto repairs. David Inglis recommended a technician who operates in Brighton. Membership David Provan 8. Copies of the new draft Constitution will be available at the August meeting for anyone who is interested.
The President thanked Bruce Nelson for bringing several items along to the meeting that Elaine Bone had kindly donated to the Club s archives. Don thanked all members for their friendship and that he and Jill had enjoyed their time with the Victorian Club. Chris Knoop provided members with an update report about the Motorcycle Cannonball Endurance Run. There were no other items of general business. Closure The President closed the meeting at 8. She is a trained historian who also teaches at the University of Melbourne.
Helen delivered a very interesting talk and presentation about Colonel Harley Tarrant. Harley, a businessman and entrepreneur, was born on 6 April in Clunes, Victoria. Tarrant s victory in the two Dunlop reliability trials of and the success of a Tarrant car in helped to develop confidence in local manufacturing.
The executive positions of President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer for a month term of appointment as well as three general committee positions for a three-year term of appointment need to be filled this year.

Andrew McDougall, Melbourne, Ph, Veteran Parts For Sale I have some veteran car parts for sale, a 4 cylinder Swift motor with 2 radiators, a Wolseley 3 speed gearbox, a 4 speed Sunbeam gearbox, some other things also.
Cracked reflector and lens and bent handle. The remnants of a D 4 which I used to complete this are included. Made from to with some detail changes to the distributor cap. It is missing a couple of caps. C A V Switch board panel meters as shown appear to be in perfect condition. It was certainly the most eyecatching vehicle I had ever seen. I assumed wrongly that it was an original car albeit with some obvious modifications. I learned subsequently that the ALF Company only ever built less than 20 cars, specifically for Fire Chiefs, and until one turned up as a barn find in the U.
After having built top quality horse drawn fire appliances for more than half a century the first motorised ALF appeared ina 4-cylinder 9 litre engine and double chain drive.
This model continued virtually unchanged for more than 20 years although it grew to 6 cylinder by the simple expedient of an additional pair of cylinders using the same blocks. Lubrication of the early units was by way of dashboard dripper.
A very adequate cooling system was necessary for pumpers such as VIN No which were required to pump under full load for long periods whilst stationary. Production over the entire period averaged only about one unit per day. Almost all orders were for fire departments in the U. My search for an ALF began in Newcastle where I inspected a 4-cylinder which turned out to be in poor condition.
I embarked on an extensive tour of the U. Many of the latter were in modern fire stations in both countries.Swapmeet 2017 yianni
I determined that whatever I bought I would leave the chassis and mechanicals unchanged.
