    This Craiglister has separate ads for a Spokeshave and a Rabbet Pane, but includes (for scale?) a Hotwheels in both. Any idea what it is? My best guess is Ford Anglia Panel Wagon but that’s surely wrong.

        Can’t fault Batshitbox for not recognising a car that didn’t exist!

            Ok, I’ve learned my official New Thing for the day… Only sold for a couple of years with 500 or so built, estimated 20 remain. No wonder I’ve never heard of them. They were built in Germany too and sold throughout Europe, again presumably in small quantities.

            I figured you might appreciate the Aus connection. I hadn’t realized they were built in such small numbers, since I’ve seen a couple in the US over the years (not for ages, when I was in the depths of my ACVW phase).
            I’d rather have a Fridolin than a Type 3 panel, but I imagine I’ll have to settle for a scale model instead of the real thing.

            It is not unusual for there to be low volume cars that didn’t really take off. I expect the main obstacle is the larger Holden panel van was quite a bit cheaper (10-20%).
            I’m not sure if the van may have been dropped before they ceased local production (1968) and reverted back to CKD assembly, but it definitely dropped off the price charts in 1968.

            I’ve never seen a 147 in real life… and I’ve seen Hebmullers.

    Random VISIT: 1956 Opel 1.75T, with “Flintstones”-approved parking brake:
    Good to see it’s being used, too.

      I wonder if any parts (like the doors) would fit on a contemporary Chevy or GMC?

        Cool, the early GM ways were pretty strange. Very similar looking, yet not exactly the same vehicles are quite common.

          I’d like to see the right side, to see if it has the same vent for the heater:
