Originally registered new in 1955 to Bush Pilots Airways, this Autocar became VH-WRH in 1960. In December 1968 it was re-registered VH-EOI, owned by the legendary Sid Marshall. De-registered in May 1975 when Sid died, it was returned to the Register in December 1976. Currently owned by my good friends Jeff and Pat from Broken Hill, it has just undergone a lengthy rebuild. I well remember a lovely evening flight in it at Charters Towers, back in 2001. Seen here at the AAAA Auster Rally.
