Last weekend one of my vintage machinery clubs (the Eltham Steam and Stationary Engine Preservation Society) had a display at the Hurstbridge Wattle Festival in Saunder's Workshop. While looking around (with permission) I looked inside the original workshop and there was this Jail Bar Ford that has been with the company since it opened in 1957. When the new workshop opened the truck was left in the original and then left there as it wasn't in the way and there was no need to move it. The tyres are still pumped up and I wouldn't mnd betting it would start without too much trouble.
It is not for sale. The current owner of the business is the son of the original owner and considers it part of the history of the workshop. Enjoy the photos
And some of the other vehicles and engines from the owner and the Eltham Steam & Stationary Engine Preservation Society on display outside
