A this rate there'll soon be no Ts left in the great state of South Australia. What a pity. Is Arthur Mullins' T still in the state or has that gone to Melbourne, Sydney or Britain also? I must confess I purchased a vintage car from South Australia a few years back which I sold on to Japan.
I don't think they will be going any place soon, been on the market for a while and with the economy still a little unstable, they are still to pricy!!
The wide cab TT is very cool!!
I can happily confirm that the Mullins 1912 Ford is still with the family. I only saw them yesterday and also having a cuppa with them tomorrow night too.
I believe the 1923 Ford at Paringa is still for sale. Although a very nicely done car, the comments I hear it is over priced by about $10K.
The 1918 roadster was the late Fred Wakefield car from about 55 years ago and rallied in the veteran section of the Sporting Car Club. The last 25 or so years it has been with Fred's daughter. It sold at auction about 12-18 months ago and ended up on the Yorke Peninsula. Interesting it is now a 1917 and up for sale once more.
The TT I have never seen before. Buyer beware on that one. No idea if it is still for sale.
The green tourer looks really nice. I would have picked it as a 22 model, having the low radiator and straight lower edge to the windscreen filler board. By 1923, most cars also had socket type hood irons rather than the timber bows shown.

I concur with Allan, I would date the Paringa car as a 1922 too.
1923 have the high radiator, but still with the external polished wood bows & double cathedral rear windows. Also the curved piece of wood deleted under the cowl for the new steel firewall, but was reinstated later in production.
1924 Duncan Motors are the first with enclosed tubular hood bows and mechanism with the single piece glass rectangular rear window. Both of these features were carried over to the "Dalgety" in 1925.
