Can someone identify this car

A friend has this photo of his grandfather (the local publican on the left) and the town's chemist maybe. One of them looks proud of the new car.
Anyone know what it is?

Re: Found some nice old Ford pics.

Dalgety was a well known business name in New Zealand a few years back. Nice pictures Mart as I am putting a 37 together at the moment that will park next to my 38 that I drive.

That is what both pumps do. I can move them both forward 3-4mm (3/16") and they return when I release them.
I just received these pumps and on installing them I found that the left...

Re: Dual exhaust on right hand drive 1940 pickup

Hey Nathan,

Here is my amateur attempt at the RHS of a RHD dual exhaust. I have only shown the RHS as the LHS is straight forward with no obstructions to talk about. This was only done yesterday...

Re: Dual exhaust on right hand drive 1940 pickup

No heat shields required as it clears the starter and steering box by plenty.
Not sure about the master cylinder as my '37 is still running cable brakes.

Re: 1937 RHD Sedan Dual Exhausts
