Information; Four-door saloon built in 1937.

History;

The earliest record of SA 1137 is that it was purchased from a used car yard in Adelaide by David Ragless in the early 1950s.
He eventually sold it to finance the overhaul of a Y-type engine and after several owners it landed with Bob Bazzica in 1965, described as being “in pieces.” Bob had the engine rebuilt and the seats re-trimmed, and then put it on the road in April 1966;  he used it as an every-day car for some time.

The car then passed to Alan Robinson in Queensland before being acquired by Bob Shinfeld on 3 April 2000 in going condition.  Bob made some improvements having the door trims re-done and a new head-lining fitted. The only mechanical work has been an overhaul of the braking system.

Bob sold the SA via Lloyds Auction in 2021 and Dean Raggatt from N.S.W. was the successful bidder and has added the car to his eclectic collection.
