David Golightly bought this car in 2012 with the aim of competing in VSCC trials. It was based around a Morton and Brett special + Model A engine and gearbox. David knew little of Model T's but successfully produced this car, clinching the 2015 VSCC Hagerty Insurance Championship with 3 outright wins on the way. David and his partner Carla Smith have also competed on many ACTC championship events as well, winning the Torbay Trial and scoring many top 5s.

From barn find to new owner
This 1923 English Model T Ford ton truck has been in pieces for over 50 years. We have recently reassembled all the original parts so that a full restoration can begin by the new owner. On it's maiden test drive the woodworm had done their job with the rear wheel and as you can see from the photographs a spare was called for (only 100yds from the workshop!!).
Another success story!
This body was reunited with it's chassis in 2014. Click through the images and you will see the tranformation from storage to driving car.
