Jumbled Junk And Busy Boys

This is the story of 6 or 7 Berowra teenagers who in about 1956 discovered the dismembered parts of an old 1931 Ford. They lay scattered around in an empty block – 57 Woodcourt Road, Berowra. Photos 1 and 2 show the parts being surveyed. A decision was made to reassemble it so the work began.

The boys ranged in age from 14 – 16 years. When the task was finally successfully completed, Photos 3 and 4, they drove it up to Roy Corrigan’s Ampol garage – corner Berowra Waters Road and Eastern Road. The Registration was never granted! Note also Corrigans Busses and the old pine trees on the block next door, which is now number 109 Berowra Waters Road.

What became of the “car” is not known, but registered or not I think they got much pleasure from all their hard work.
