FJ sedan looks great and I remember seeing the FJ hearse years ago at Rickshaws at the woolsheds in Wickham!
Got to know Frank Lee a little...a great airbrusher!

It's a '40 Willys Sedan Allan.  Note the split grille.
It was for sale but I can't find it again.

This is a '40 sedan delivery


Sedans are rarer than coupes as they were heavier and so not popular as gassers and got chopped up for the parts that fitted the coupes.

Knew it was one or the other year model Zenrat, A uncle of mine had a dark blue one when I was 7 year old he rolled it one night going home from the pub.

He wouldn't have had a couple of sherbets would he?

How about this.
Andromeda.  Hemi powered Fad T.  This lived round the corner from me in the village I grew up in in Pomgolia.  You'd see it cruising on summer weekends and he'd bring it to the school summer fete every year.

Sorry Fred but Poms cant build modified cars at all.

They never get the proportions or the styling right be it Pre 48's, street machines or vans.

The FJ Hearse would've indeed been Pat Fay's Humpty Mecca Hearse, it still exists but it's 3 parts buggered. Frank Lee did the murals and was a legend with an airbrush, still pretty sharp these days for a guy in his 80's.

Sad to know that about Pat's FJ Hearse,it was one awesome van, Ya Zenrat he always had a few sherbets,after he lost his licence he rode a horse to the pub,Police pulled him up to talked to him he fell off breaking his leg,worst was to come when he got home my aunty gave him what for. Laughing have not seen him for years now.

The CBS van is the highlight apart from the highbeams on the helicopter car.

IIRC the CBS Supervan was a Bedford CF and CBS were a brake pad manufacturers.
Custom Car magazine was great.  Every month a topless model obscuring the feature car. My mum hated me buying it.

Those who get The Rodders' Journal (or stand and read it in the newso's) will have seen this.
It's a '59 Chevy 4 door wagon built by Cody Walls and it's pretty near perfect in my book.  I think the side trim could come further back onto the rear doors in rode to break up that large flat area somewhat - but that's about it.
It's wedge channelled 4" at the front (2" in the middle), airbagged, is powered by a 6 and the bonnet and front roll pan are made from ribbed metal cut out of a second roof.
It seats 9.
