Thoroughbrace Wagon


Advertised in Cobb & Co.’s Catalogue of High Class Vehicles, 1915, as a 3-ton van with coach undercarriage, this wagon is 3.6m long and has 100mm wide tyres. There is a high driver’s seat but no tool box. The hole in the side was for the tap on a water tank which was a common feature on drover’s wagons. The front half rims need restoration, while the back wheels have felloes.


White flaking paint on the body and traces of red on the undercarriage and wheels.


Thought to have been donated by Sam Fuller from the Longreach area in the early 1960s. (Bolton Collection)
