    I would have thought that any car built before 1918 would be a vintage car not veteran because vintage always comes before veteran i anything else, either you have it wrong or the rest of this ugly world is wrong in everything that is vintage and we’re all have been decieved. I still think and will always think that anything that isolder that 1918 is vintage otherwise all aircraft I have as vintage or no longer and I may as well throw them in the bin.

    Hi Dingo. I can appreciate your confusion. Not sure what aircraft classifications are, however the classifications we have listed here are correct. There is even another classification which is called Edwardian, older than Veteran. These are 1 cylinder powered vehicles like those early motor powered cycle type cars. Some of the newer age classifications may vary from club to club, or state to state

      Hi Jeff
      I am the web master for the site. I personally can’t help with your enquiry. If other members see your question they may respond. I suggest you speak to a club that specialises in earlier Holdens, I’m sure they could help. Tim

    Hi Jeff, i normally use 1.0 mm mild steel sheet which is in the old terms .039″ thick which is available from any steel stockist. It is reasonably easy to bend/fold and work with and will weld OK

      Thanks Alan for replying to Jeff. I didn’t really know what to suggest

    Hello,, Nice site .. Does that happen to someone who might have a plan of Chevrolet AA Coach 1927. Or a link to the public drawings of the car ..?

      Hello Benny, i am unaware of any drawings for Chevrolet AA Coach, and there are no known, 27 AA Coaches in our club, but i have sketches with some sizes etc for Chevrolet Touring AB 1928, Australian Body by Holden.

    Hi Alan .. Okay,,, A model 1928 can safely be used as a guide .. :-) I need specifically a drawing / sketch with dimensions or fixed points for my two doors. So I can see where I should place my wooden top on the frame, and where I should place the A and C pillars .. then how the cooler / radiator is attached to the frame. :-)
    Then I can get started on my 2000 hours of project :-)

      Hi Benny, i am concerned that my 28 AB is longer in the front chassis rails than your 27 AA, as they were getting ready for the chev 6 cyl, engine but still using the trusty 4cyl. and your 27 AA Coach is a closed body style with larger doors than the Aussie built open tourers, as mine is. Radiater is most likley the same, sitting in a metal bracket bolted thru the chassis with two nuts. will do some checks for you.

    Hi Alan .
    Okay. I also looked a little photo on the net … And now see that the similarity is not quite as good … I’ve been around a little tree location on the frame by looking at another guy who restores a similar min … so I can get started on building. I also have some rotten wood from the original car. and may be able to set fixed points of the structure. Do you have photo or link to the cooling device location and suspension, I branches (borrow them) .. :-) :-)
    / Benny
