    Is that the ID that Bob King restored some years ago? He sold it and then he bought it back at a reduced price some time later.

    It certainly looks as though it is! A fellow from Ballarat bought it. Bob asked me to repair the aluminium boot lid and respray it for him!

    G'day,
    a nice [?] Fairlane is there as well.

    Been there before.

    With the roof up, I could put the 18E in the boot.
    regards,

    If it is the ex-Bob King car (and it certainly looks like it), it spent a good part of it's life immobile in a shed in Castlemaine.
    The Bob King car was written up in a article in Australian Classic Cars, October 1996, when it was on club reg CH 0970. I have a scan of this article, but it's 20 Mb. If you're interested, PM me.

    Well, not really. If this one has been properly restored, there will be a metal tub in the center of the trunk floor that measures out about 10 cubic feet. Up or down, the remainder of the trunk is occupied by top mechanism and the necessary space to let it work.

    After having restored one of these from the ground-up for a Saudi sheikh, I am too familiar with these. But that top in motion is one hell of a piece of mechanical art.

    The measure of your character isn't what you do when people are watching- it's what you do when they aren't watching.

    I have friend with one of htem.... the roof mechanism is remarkable. They think citroen hydraulics are complex... You should see the bloody thing. The screws to bolt the roof on are even driven by motors to pull it down (as well as the series of motors and soleniods to raise and lower the roof).

    G'day,
    I just had a look at the Ford Ad, you are right. 'Remarkable' is probably an understatement.
