Best Houses Australia

Did anyone watch Best Houses Australia on 7TWO last night? This house in Canberra was featured.
In the garage was a nice little yellow sports (bottom RH corner)
What might that be do you think?

More on Reid's Italia.

Over to Reid.
This is where my dad had the car for 40+ years. Check out the bonnet scoop. As a kid playing with matches I set the car on fire!! and yes dad caught me and belted the shit out of me, then put out the fire. So I had to remake the bonnet and the scoop is made a little higher to fit the aluminium rocker cover.

What's left of the old bonnet.
Singer 9  4A chassis with a cut down Holden diff and Armstrong lever shocks.
Here's another shot of the almost finished car.

5 years on.

In 2010 Reid B or his dad picked up this grey Holden powered Italia roadster. It was originally registered in South Australia and the woman who owned it moved to Victoria where the car went into storage for 44 years.
It was built in the early 1960s on a Singer chassis.
In 2011 we received some progress photos.
Now in 2015, here it is in all its glory.
Reid and his family must be very proud.

While most Bolwell owners don't go all that crazy, this is what you can do with a Eureka.
