Hi Dane ,They must have had a white ant problem out there to have to fit discs.

Dane, the heading Title Men suggests they may have been a survey party. The car looks like a Duncan and Fraser station utility. The Richards and Wilcox accessory front suspension was offered on a lot of cars sold by D&F.

Bob, if they had used the same native pine as the verandah posts, they would have had no white ant problems!

The car has Richards accessory suspension as often sold by South Australian agents Duncan & Fraser.

I'm not sure about the body but it looks like one of the station cars they used to sell??

Dave Chantrell will know!

cheers
