The Charabang is a 1924 White
It was built by a Sydney body building firm (Smith and Waddington) famous for their Rolls Royce bodies as well as other high end makes.

As a teenager I knew the designer of these bodies Arthur Smith who my father worked with in the body repair business he ran before retiring in 1958.

Only last year I completed a story about the firm
which went bankrupt in 1925 just as Ford Canada set up shop in Australia.

I suppose that being built on a White chassis it really isn't a car at all. Earlier charabancs were often based on trucks. During the week the trucks did normal trucking duties and on the weekends a charabanc body was fitted for tourism work. I have not seen photos of any as nice as this one.

Peter,
Thank for identification of the Smith & Waddington Vehicle. It is quite a machine. What was the engine size?
