    Repost of the Official photo of the car - the start of the Hunua Hundred in 1971.
    ** Car has black wheels and I seem to think was only one colour " Black " at that time.
    Carjam mentions Black with Red - so ?? - unless taken back to original, if known !!

    928, your question ??
    That is from John Stokes Facebook page - guess he likes them !! - I got for the Book Cover ..
    Understand that John is writing another book on Ford in New Zealand, more about the Seaview Plant than the cars.

    That Ford 'New Beauty' is the same as the one I went on my first trip to Boggabilla in...

    No it's not! Ours had a spare wheel on a front mudguard. But it wasn't black, it was a very dark blue.

    It was quite a trip, the exhaust pipe broke somewhere near Dungog and made it quite noisy until we got to Taree.

    I remember this trip quite well, right up to when we went to play in the river at 'Little Bondi' between Boggabilla and Goondiwindi, but I recall nothing whatever of the drive home.

    Oddly, I am the only person left who recalls the trip details at all. My 'big' sister doesn't remember anything, nor does my younger brother, my youngest brother was there, but only a baby and he died 11 years ago anyway.

    It was certainly different to our previous car, a Chev 4 converted to a panel van.

    Vanguard GT - TR3 Special ..

    An interesting car - 1952 Standard Vanguard - a wreck provided the chassis and some components including the Engine. -Motor has been modified with TR3 parts and stated to have TR4 specs.

    Body of the car is Fibreglass, by Ferris De Joux
    If it looks familar - It is - as Ferris De Joux used the same body on his own Holden powered Coupe.

    Photos from Sports Car World March 1964 issue -kindly given to me by BMC BOY [ Ross there were some photos cut out from other articles in the Magazine ? ].

    Car was built by Kevin Lamb around 1963 -details from SCW March 1964 - Australian Magazine - article written by Grant Howard who was the New Zealand correspondent for SCW in the 1960's

    Photos a bit small - may try to resize !

    This thread is called " Motoring pics Vintage cars -.."
    The car is that now 1952 Chassis, mid to late 1950's mechanicals and created in 1963, Under the 30 year rule its a Vintage - wonder if it still exists.
    Any information welcome.

    Have gleaned quite a bit more about this car and the other similar bodied one - Bodies by Ferris De Joux - some details posted on the De Joux thread ..
    Rumours are of a third car No1, Holden 6 powered - later repowered with a Holden 253 V8 - then ?a 350 V8.. however there is a comment that the Holden car was wrecked in 1967 .. sohis is there a third body - as a non Vanguard powered car - a V8 was for sale in 2013 ??
    Questions, ??
