This photo is from a glass plate negative retrieved from the under the floor boards of the general store in Farina, South Australia in the 1950's before it was demolished. All we know is it was a travelling salesman and the car was sold by Duncan & Fraser (see www.duncanandfraser.com). The forum reader's comments please? Dave C.
Now that old boy was hungry ! I would hire him in a minute !
Where is the gas tank?
The gas tank might have been the "square" one used on the first 1911 torpedos. It just does not show up well.
Looks like he needs a bigger truck. I love the car, though.
Thank you so much for posting the photo of the Canadian Torpedo. It has lots of good details on what appears to be a fairly new car rather than one that has been used for many years. I tried to zoom in and see if a round gas tank was visible, but I could not tell.
Iím not sure if that much stuff would hide the larger round Torpedo gas tank or not. For sure Darelís observation that it might have the shorter square Torpedo tank would make sense. I donít really know if Canada used both types like the USA did or not.
Again thank you for posting it.

Checking the original photo it has a round fuel tank. Dave C.
The zoom does show things better.
It looks like they have put a cargo box on the back and maybe relocated the tank to the front a little bit.
A great picture.
