  1. Perhaps a 1925 Nash Roadster? No doubt there would be some variations in the Australian bodied version. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nash_Motors#/media/File:1922-nash-001.jpg
  2. A circa 1922 Overland 4 as shown in the below link. I cannot see any rear springs or a fuel tank and this fits the Overland 4 which had the 1/4 elliptic springs and a cowl mounted fuel tank. Also it appears to have the drum headlights shown in the attached link and the bottom curve of the windshield post also fits. https://www.shannons.com.au/auctions/2011-shannons-sydney-summer-classic-auction/YF3C669UWMSCEX11/
  3. The below link shows a Stoddard-Dayton 1911 Model 11-K. I know it has a door and no external gear lever/brake but I post it to show the alignment of the bonnet to cowl which to me is a good match to that in the OP. I would suggest that it would not be difficult for the Stoddard Dayton factory to produce a vehicle perhaps based on this model to the specifications of the unidentified vehicle. The four spare tyres suggests (to me) a long endurance type of vehicle such as might be used in a Glidden Tour. http://www.flickr.com/photos/fredsredt/4896505982/in/set-72157624609586401/
  4. A Stoddard-Dayton Runabout? Perhaps a circa 1907 Model K.
  5. Definitely a long shot but if the initials on the side of the seat are "GJG" I'll go for a GJG Pirate Runabout circa 1910-12 https://www.google.com/search?q=gjg+pirate+runabout&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwj1t6KrvtDfAhUGgbwKHYljB6IQ7Al6BAgFEA0&biw=1035&bih=534&dpr=1.75#imgrc=1InLVP2uk3BwAM:&spf=1546479556935
  6. The attached link discusses the Aerocar and Ford links, however, some of the details might be incorrect eg the model F having a wheelbase of 151 inches and hp of 45 which could be typos. As for the OP car having no louvres in the bonnet I suggest that this is merely because of the poor photo. The photo in this link appears to be identical with the one from the Early American Automobile site. http://www.mychurchgrowth.com/blog/tag/mi/
  7. Hope this link works showing an Aerocar Model F advertisement. http://cenaprintscom.blogspot.com/2011/07/
  8. This post brings back fond memories of Professor Julius Sumner Miller and his famous saying "Why is it so". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julius_Sumner_Miller
  9. As Adade advises he sourced two supports of 0.420 shaft size from different sources I would suggest 0.420 is the original shaft size and the 0.437 shaft size is more likely the result of the original being worn and replaced with the larger shaft.
  10. I know nothing about 1918 Buick engines but I would suggest that sometime in the engine's past (possibly when work was done in the 1950's) the rockers and shaft were worn so the shaft was replaced with a larger one and the rockers and pillar blocks (supports) were reamed to suit.
  11. Lets put this in perspective Oldcar what type of shipping did you specify for this delivery? Did you request priority shipping or leave it up to the sender to specify the type of shipping? From my experience you get what you pay for and if the delivery is urgent you specify (and pay for) the type of shipping accordingly.
  12. Hymin is it possible to take a rear photo of the car in your original post? This will enable positive identification so you will know for sure what it is.
  13. Judging by the grille (or what is left of it) I believe that it is actually a Holden HQ Statesman and not a Premier. The statesman has a central vertical divider in the grille where the Premier has the standard HQ grille. A rear or side photo will verify what it is. https://www.google.com/search?q=hq+holden+statesman&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjajKaq0JffAhUPSX0KHWOWDOYQ7Al6BAgAEA0#imgrc=z6waZcjKTI1QjM:&spf=1544525871133
