HRG 1500cc 4-Seat Roadster For Sale (1949)Built on the 14th April 1949, this HRG was sold new by Brown and Dureau of Collins St, Melbourne, who commissioned a one-off four seat body said to have been built by Gordon Stewart of Sydney and is the only four-seat HRG ever made. One of the only 251 HRGs, W185 was rallied by multiple Australian Grand Prix winner Doug Whiteford and Reg Nutt for Brown and Dureau. The first private owner was John P. Ward of Toorak, Victoria who bought the car in 1952 and it subsequently changed hands several times. One owner, Archie Johnson Jnr., even raced the HRG in the Moomba Tourist Trophy at Albert Park on March 26, 1955. The following year the car passed to the late David Eggleton and was kept by him for the next five decades, laid-up since the early 1960s and largely forgotten. Eggleton eventually began restoring the HRG and it spent the last few years on display in the National Automobile of Tasmania in Launceston.
This HRG has been fully restored mechanically, re-wired and the bodywork and interior are in very good condition. The original hood and side curtains are included with the car.
Now offered for sale, this is an opportunity to acquire a unique H.R.G with known and documented provenance. Sold with the original registration number plates US474.
Engine No. C11635
