Does anyone know who built/restored this car? I tried to private message the Peter Martin Sydney, Australia listed with the picture many times on the forum but it takes me to the wrong Peter Martin in California.
Just needs the lewis gun.....
Must be this one? No details, just found the image.
Howard, you have the right owner/restorer. It is Peter Martin of Sydney. Send me an email and I should be able to send you his email.
That is a nice vehicle. Of course the Australian army used quite a few brass T's during the war, here are a couple more old photos, -
Caption- "Two soldiers standing in desert (possibly Egypt), another man wearing a pith helmet sitting in car."
Yes that is my 1916 T, you are welcome to PM me about it if you wish.
Hi Peter, how was Shepparton?
Great run wet and freezing some days, typical Victorian weather, every time we go down there it rains. The T ran flawlessly as usual. Going Ford is the going thing!
Peter, I just sent you a second private message spaced several days apart.
Hi Peter, Victoria is always wet. Heh, heh. Come to sunny South Australia!!!
Since no matter what I do I can't get in touch with Peter Martin. Does anyone else know if the angle iron brackets used on the sides of this body can be purchased?
Thanks, Howard Dennis
I have been away on a tour, only got back last evening. I will send you a PM in the next couple of days re your questions. as for the angle brackets, I made a pattern and had them cast in aluminium to suit my body.
Thanks Peter, I think with information from your body and my 1917 Maxwell I should be able to replicate this vehicle shown in a 1916 Maxwell company magazine. I found out from the Jamestown Historical Society that the Order Of The Sons Of St. George were English born immigrants who sought to repay what their adopted country had done for them by purchasing Maxwell ambulances and donating them to the war effort. This had all been lost history till I discovered this picture.
