Notes from Vendor:
Purchased 7 years ago from Benalla Victoria where it was owned for quite some time and was used for family excursions. It was here it was bought from the original builder.

Some years back we towed a tear drop camper with the 47 to Maryborough Qld from Mansfield in Victoria to the ASRF national get together. I was fortunate enough to meet the original builder. As I recall his story, he returned from active service in Vietnam in the late 60’s. He found the car in a paddock and built it over the next 40 years into 3 different incarnations. His father owned an upholstery business and he learned the trade. The white leather interior was done by the original builder. It is currently is the last of those incarnations.

After the return from Maryborough Qld, we had the engine and trans completely rebuilt and new front Wilwood disc brakes fitted. The front end is HQ I believe. The car also has a Bluetooth capable radio.
We fitted electric brakes for towing the teardrop and a small vacuum pump to assist braking as it has a lumpy cam. The engine and trans work was looked after by Matt Lagoon from Shepparton region.

Apart from that work we haven’t done anything else other than regular polishing and weekend runs. It has been to Bright Rod Run numerous times in the last 5 years and has done a few weddings.

The speedo is in MPH.

The car has VASS approval and paperwork will be supplied.
