    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.

    Ray,
    You will have to write a book, just the names of the towns / places, amused those I shared this with here at work today.
    Cheers,
    Ken H
