On a trip, in the 1980's we visited the country museum in Kerang, Victoria. I was fascinated by a car made using many T parts, and powered by a T engine cut in half. Unfortunately I was only able to take one photograph (film was expensive!). I have never been able to re-visit the museum to get more details of the car.

Perhaps someone here has photographed it at some time, or perhaps there is someone in Victoria who lives close by and could visit the museum to gather more information.

Dane,
The car is still in Kerang in the same location. We visited with the club while in Kerang celebrating the local Ford dealerships Centenary. Amazingly the block is an early 09-11 style which was cut in half. The car is a home built local car built back in the teens from available parts.A very interesting vehicle. If you are in the area again take the opportunity to look it up.

Any photos Warwick? Would be very interested in any engine details. I can remember some of it, but it was a long time ago.

It looks like a mini 1926 Bugatti to me!

Cool, influenced by the cycle car era, I think. I wonder if it has a friction transmission connected to the rear axle by a chain?

Thanks Russell. Obviously the car is being presented a lot better in recent years. Pity about those lamps on it, IMHO they look so much out of place.
