Current Owner: Dino Mattea, Queensland

History: This car was delivered in chassis form in 1933 and was immediately prepared for a career in racing. It was entered in the 1934 AGP by J Summers but crashed out on lap 14. Later in the year he had much better success in the Phillip Island Winter 100 finishing 3rd. Summers continued to race the car until 1939 finishing 8th in the 1936 Victor Harbour AGP. He entered in both the Mt Panorama AGP of 1938 and the Lobethal AGP of 1939 but did not finish either. In 1947 the car again appeared in racing, this time with the famous Bib Stillwell at the wheel. He finished 12th in the NSW championships at Nowra. At this point the current owner came on the scene and bought the car from Sabina Motors on the 27 October 1956. Dino then commenced a marathon rebuild which was completed in April 2000 and he has attended National Meetings every year from then until 2004. The car also is keeping up its racing heritage with runs in Queensland Club competition and Mt Cotton Hillclimb.
