I bought this '36 coupe from Red Hill Vic., back when everything was black and white, apart from the obvious modification
it also had the boot lid welded shut.

There is/was a purple ol' timey 60's style 36 5W cruzin' around in S.A., think it had a 32 shell out front. Came up to Parklands for the Nats years back.
