    If you thinks something stinks here, it does, because this is TWIN6's METHANE powered car. He saves up for months to go on a trip......

  16. This is a bit of an oddity. The script on the number plate looks more like that used in NZ than anything in Aust.

    The thing is Fords in NZ were a direct import from either US or Canada as I understand it. Here in Aust. we had our own assembly plant. This resulted in some different or varied body styles being made here. The "ute" is one example. The sloper is another.

    We also produced panel vans(called sedan delivery in US) here in Australia. These PVs were based on the utility however they never looked like the unit in the pic. This one has some unusual swage lines along the side that give it quite a lot of character. The Aust ones never had this.

    I wonder if this was a custom built locally in NZ?

    Anyone else with any ideas?

  17. TRAFFIC BONERS???:eek::eek:
     
  18. Sigh, boy, oh, boy, would I like to have one of these converted into a race car hauler. Living quarters up front, race quarters out back. A '67 Mustang funny car (nitro-injected FE, of course) would look good coming out the back of this.

    It's captioned elsewhere as A 1937 Ford van of Texaco in Oriental Bay (Wellington NZ) Where it was most likely built in the Ford plant from Canadian and local parts :eek:
     
  21. Sorry to interrupt the vintage pics with a newer one but that 37 panel body looks like this 39? Picture taken in New Zealand. Now back to the old pics.
