The inside of the car
There are very few Veteran Austins left in New Zealand several have, over recent years, been sold overseas and there are a few under restoration although the owners of those under restoration are have a great deal of trouble finding the missing bits The earliest car is 1910, it belongs to the Lemon Family Trust. The Lemon family did have the remains of a second 1910 18/24 car which consisted of a chassis and bits. Much of the major parts were missing including the diff head This car has, after many years of struggling, been restored as a 1910 Ranelagh Roadster Production figures show that only 1575 of the model were produced and that this car was built in the last year of production
It is a real credit to the owner who is obviously a very talented craftsman The photos shown here were taken February 2006 during the 100 year run which covered the full length of New Zealand.
