I’m very pleased to note that Tony Winn has been in touch again. Tony seems to be something of an expert on the Ralph Ferrie history, and has formerly contributed some fine material relating to the larger-than-life local entrepreneur.
These images are remarkable, and both myself and Tony would like to know more about them. I think I may have seen a car of this type in a local news story of late, but can’t remember what it was. That seems like an awful lot of faith to put into a door seal for starters, let alone whatever’s sealing the underside of the engine and transmission.
Got some crackers here mate!
This is another Ralph Ferrie connection, I think he bought the amphicar/boat in the 1960′s sometime. Don’t know who’s driving it, but I do know that it’s being driven in Chasewater.
Maybe somebody knows who’s in the pictures?
Good question. What is the car, who owned it, and why weren’t they more successful? Who are the gentlemen – and the child – pictured?
It certainly looks like Chasewater.
I’d like to thank Tony for his generosity in supplying this unique thing, and to ask anyone else harbouring such wonderful ephemera to please, please let me have a copy. Great stuff.
Please, anything you’ve got, comment here or BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Cheers.
