Always nice to see a T in its natural element with the people who love it.

Hi, Adrian. It's nice to see that those right hand drive T's have a left front door. Thanks for posting the pictures and for all the other pictures you send us. They're always a joy to see. Bob

Thanks Robert, yes most all RHD Ts have left and right hand front doors. Perhaps was easier to have one production line for both LHD and RHD options as Canad served itself and the 'British Empire' so covered both LHD and RHD I belive.

RHD doors a bit difficult to use though :-)

The "above the axle wishbone" must make it about 1917 or 1918. Then did they start doing chassis only and having a local coachbuilder do bodywork?

The front hub bolts look like some sort of demountable hub or something

The hubs are demountable from the centre with the hub staying on the car enabling a complete spare non-demountable wheel to be carried minus the hub. Seen them in Australia too, could be a Colonial thing. I have attached a photo from a local 1912 with a similar set up. Dave C.
