Shelsley Walsh Hillclimb

We had a great but showery day at Shelsly Walsh on Sunday, lot's of Pre War car's with some incredible special's on the hill.

I have attached a photo for you taken from the seat of my 1913 Chalmers that was bought from your stand at Beaulieu in 2012 and another of the car ready to go up the hill.

editor: FYI, the old chap whom we invited to show/offer his car at our stand denies up to this day that he sold the car then and there. Afraid that he was to owe us a beer or two.

1926 CHEV -16 Seater Bus

My bus  was similar to the bus used as a passenger service  to pick up holiday makers who came down from Melbourne, Australia, by paddle steamer to Geelong, then by this bus to  Barwon Heads. This service was owned by my uncle, Fred Bartlett from 1920.

This 1926 ,16 seater ,Chev 4 cyl Bus has been rebuilt in HUON PINE (can never rot out and this timber is only found on the banks of the Franklin River on South West Coast of Tasmania, an island off the south coast of Victoria,Australia.this timber was mainly used for ship building.

The bus is built on a Ix Tone chassis ,has an ajustable front seat from a jinker,wooden slated seats in the rear along both sides, rear centre opening door for passengers but all 3 doors will open in the rear. I rebuilt it over a 12 month period and use it on rallies, social events ,and general driving

ideal for winery's - tourisim - advertising -  school fetes

pre 1910  ohv jap engine?

hi! this motor turned up at hershey, pa swap meet! trying to date it! the cam cover is from a later motor, modified to fit this motor! pinion shaft is extra long and would stick out through the cam cover, so this motor was never a motorcycle engine! maybe cycle car, aero? bore and stroke 85.5mmx95mm, rocker arms are numbered  13,14,15,16,, i am thinking this motor is a 1906, as the motor # is 6101, case # 1, some of the internal parts -rods, cam followers are stamped #1, any ideas on the year and applaication for this engine will be appreciated! thank you for your time!
