Default 1925 Hart Parr 16-30E next long term project

Well this morning Dad and I went and looked at my next loooong term project, she is in quite a state as it was outside for many years before it was shedded but is mostly complete. I just need to work out how to get it home. There was 3 of them originally, on a property not far from here. When the current owner brought the property, they gave the other two which were just the rear halves to some guy on the proviso he shifted this one to their farm to put it under cover, he then proceeded to basically drop it off the trailer smashing the front bolster in the process (SIGH!!). I will update this when I get her home but for now some pics to whet the appetite.

E27n, What a great find you are so lucky it is almost complete, I have hauled 3 remains home from central NSW (1200km) in an attempt to get enought to make one, I will check in daylight tomorrow but I am fairly certain I will have that broken front casting for you amongst the wrecks I have
regards Norm.

Nice find. Let me know if I can help with any machining.
I also note you tend to keep lousy company
