For auction 20 August at Mallala Motorsport Park, South Australia.
This charming example was built at the Canada plant. It was bodied in Australia by Properts’ of Newtown indicated by the applied decorative body plate. Clem Smith bought this car from Mr. Bruce Feldtmann of Dookie, Victoria in November 2012. A detailed letter to Clem from Mr. Feldtmann explains that to his knowledge the car was known in the Rushworth, Nagambie, Shepparton districts as the Red Spider in the 1920s and 1930s. It was found in Shepparton during the 1950s in a neglected state. It was then restored by Col Anderson of Shepparton. Mr. Feldtmann acquired the car in about 1990 then embarked on further work including: All modern bearings; improved axles; an A Model crankshaft and rods; Frontenac head and an original Fronty manifold; new valves and bearings; new Kingpins and flywheel bearings; installation of a water pump and a Datsun distributor; front motorcycle disc brakes; rear hydraulic drum brakes and Hayes 21” wheels.
The car is accompanied by its fold down roof and a Domestic and Overseas edition Ford Manual published by Ford Motor Company of Canada Limited.
