    Kevin Greene's '37 Chev was on the cover of the January 1969 NZ Hot Rod magazine and they noted that it would be featured in a later issue.

    My understanding is that Kevin took the Coupe to the USA with him where it resides to this day.
    A lovely man and I bought many parts off him from his business, “ The Chevvy Shop”

    Wow Milan, great job! Yes this is the car I was thinking of. I can see why I got the two mixed up. They're both metallic '37 Chev coupes. But seeing them together now I can see they're both completely different.

    Kevin Greene’s is a 37 and the other a 38 if you go by the grilles

    Oh yeah, well spotted. I was just looking at the recess on the side bodywork.

    The orange Ford in the foreground has the late Ross Atkins' name on the cockpit surround but I thought he had a BT18 but this car certainly doesn't look like a Brabham! It could be the one-off built and raced by his brother Francis perhaps ( the FBA?). My memory is fading but it was about 50 years ago! Francis and I worked on Bryan Faloon's old Brabham Climax in the Tasman Series (circa 1967-68). Bryan, Ross, Francis and Warwick Binning shared a workshop in Levin to maintain their cars. Warwick bought the early Humber80 powered Begg National Formula car and converted it to Formula Ford specs, I eventually ended up with that car a couple of years later. I think the Begg was the second of the marque, Michael Clark will know!

    You might not believe this but I was multi-tasking - on the phone, checking TRS/emailing the above photo to Howard Wood and re-arranging a couple of books on my shelf - one of which is called 'A Tribute to George Begg - The Man and his Cars'...and then I found myself reading about what it known as 'the second car'.

    The book tells us "Warwick Binning converted the car into a Formula Ford in 1971..." When Rootes powered it was driven by Dave Bruton, Colin Bunce, Russell Thompson and Ian Bisman. Ian co-owns the car today with Noel Atley - they purchased it from Allan Woolf.
