Default Passing on to next generation

"Huge lifetime collection"... Owner getting old (or has passed away)? Must be one of the first generation collectors like John Belfield. Judging by the signs, it was some sort of museum.

Some pretty good examples there, will be interesting to see what the CMPs go for under the hammer.

We dropped in there a few years back, interesting and enjoyable it was too. Had a spin in the Cent, so it was running then.

Smile Collection

This collection has expanded since I last visited probably 5 years ago.
I first visited probably 10 years ago when he first started to collect MV's.
So, yes, he's only been collecting for a short time really.
There's some CMP's that aren't included in these photos, so I'm guessing that they are keeping some stuff.
The Batemans often visited Corowa and spent up at the swap meet, but had no interest in bringing a vehicle.
Should be a good weekend.

The paint looks authentic enough, but I think the ARN of the Cent is supposed to be 169-055?

Default WA MG Carrier

If the ARN is correct (5124) it is a WA produced carrier (State Engineering Works), which was sold out of service in the 1950s from 3 Base Ordnance Depot, Seymour. At the time of that sale, the engine number was 3G33780F.

Appears to be nice and complete. That should get the West Aussie contingent motivated!

Default nearly there

Hi Mike, looks like a late production hull of Vic or WA origin, but missing a lot that makes it a WA carrier.
Needs all steel idler and front road wheels, rear upper tool rack and correct air scoop. A look at the floor of the radiator opening will seal the deal.

Should make 35 - 40k as is, allowing for auction day loons.

Cheers, Wayne

Default Long time since manufacture

All good points, Wayne.

The ARN/hull number, if correct, is definitely one issued to a WA manufactured carrier, but who is to know what has happened to it in the intervening 80-odd years? An older restoration perhaps?

Mike

Hi Robert,
Are you bidding at the auction? What you need is a bit of 'garden art' out front of your new home. I think there are some Furphys in the auction. They are all the rage at the moment. Had to help heave one off a trailer in Sydney last month.

Or are you looking for another Blitz? Best of luck on what ever you bid on.


regards, Richard

Inspect before you buy?

Kind of reminds me of the guy who bought the duck at James Swan Auction

Does anyone know the ownership history of the tank? It is being represented as a SVN tank, seems to be a decent runner...

Wink Caveat Emptor

Given the number on the Cent, carrier number could just be that the box is off a WA carrier, or just a made up......

Agree, Philip.

As I said in my two posts: IF it is the correct hull number, and even then, who know's what has happened to it in the intervening 80 odd years.
