Hi,

not sure if this is a production item or something created in a backyard.



And this looked a bit interesting.


And this rig on its way home from a national rally in Vic.

Second photo, the tractor has a welder mounted on top, which is a bit different, normally these welders were on a frame on the back or in front of the front axle

First one looks like a backyard job for sure, front wheels are VW, rears are something else.

More pics of the Valiant in the background would be nice, it appears to be a GLX :cheer: :cheer: :cheer:

It reminds Me of those little CRANVEL Backhoes you used to see years ago..

There are some Valiants coming up from another day. :)

Now that PDU got the where is it I can say the little yellow thing is at Wilmington, SA in the side street next to the Toy Museum, thus one of the many Landrovers in the background. Behind the Landrover is this little Austin or Ford, can't remember which.


Another oddity across the road in Wilmington is this little shop that would otherwise be shuttered like a lot of others in town but instead has a couple of vending machines supplying snack 24hours a day.

Terry, it is an Austin Seven or eight from the 1930's. I think it has an English body.

I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

I'd suggest 1935 Austin 10.

Wheels look too wide for VW. Could be early Landrover or even FJ Holden, all had same bolt patten.

Given the large collection of Landrovers on the property that would be my bet.
