I have been reliably informed that this car is the Bulant, built about 1960 by Brian Rawlings and the first of his cars to carry that name (note one "l"). It ran a s.v. Morris 8 engine, gearbox and back axle, which was narrowed on one side to let the tailshaft run under the driver's right elbow. The lost rear track was regained by using Buick wheels reversed. Front suspension was swing axle, initially with Morris steering box, later with Lloyd Hartnett rack and pinion. Chassis was multi-tube, built by Brian, as was the alloy bodywork. He claimed he built it for 67 pounds ten shillings, not counting engine and gearbox. It was never very powerful, but it was light and it went round corners pretty well. It is currently owned by I## B##### in Victoria.
Okay, really scraping the bottom of the shoebox here but I thought John Medley and others might like to identify this one. I'm guessing from other negatives in the packet it's the early '60s, but I could be wrong. I would be fairly sure it's NSW.
I noticed the three provisional stripes on the rear - can anyone recall if we kept them for the three signatures or was one deleted as we obtained each signature?
