BEWARE OF THESE SCAMMERS!

One of our members who had advertised an AS badge for sale was contacted by someone named SMITH LODGE PAUL (slpaul7@gmail.com) who expressed interest in the item for sale and asked for additional photos. 

As the ad had only been advertised in the Southern Sphinx and on this webpage, It seemed legit so he was sent the extra photos. Our member got a reply which was extremely fishy – he wanted to pay with a certified cheque, use a courier to pick up the item and he was not willing to give an address or any contact info. In addition he also offered more money than the sellerI was asking for the item.

Our member did not proceed with the sale, went to Google for a search of the email address and up he came ...... what a con artist!

He mainly targets people selling cars and/or accessories, asks for additional info and pictures and then posts his own ad (typically on eBay or another similar website) using the pics and info which makes his (fake) ad look like the real deal. People pay him for an item he doesn’t have and he then closes his eBay or Paypal a/c or whatever and they never see their money again.

So here's a heads-up that he may use the photos and information of an AS badge to try to catch someone from the AS fraternity.

He now has a fellow scammer who uses lewistellfllol@gmail.com as his email address and who has requested extra photos of one of our cars for sale.

FOR SALE: Walking Foot Sewing Machine

Owing to health issues I have decided to sell my motor trimmers heavy duty sewing machine. It is a Mitsubishi DY330 which has had about two years of use with it's original owner and has been in my possession for the last 30 years. It has only had very occasional use since I purchased it - a total probably of the order of 40 to 60 days of accumulated use, satisfying my spasmodic needs. The machine is a professional motor trimmers machine with a walking foot. It will sew many thicknesses of leather and is capable of sewing carpet to 3 ply! It is mounted on an ultra strong steel stand. These machines rarely come on the market. I had it professionally serviced on 12th March 2006 and it has not been used much since.

Pickup is from Harden, New South Wales.


Price: $1,500.

Please contact Penn Bradly by phone (02) 6386 4348, fax (02) 6386 4349 or by email.

Give Away or Swap Ute Parts

An old ute is currently being dismantled in preparation for a re-design and most parts (motor, gearbox, front end, diff, wheels & trims, front wheel arches, front bumper & skirt) have already been removed as they will not be needed for the new project.

A swap of all (or some) of the parts for a front badge and hood ornament would be ideal. Otherwise just come and take what you would like. Everything that's not needed will be dumped of nobody wants to have them.

All items are PICKUP ONLY from Coolamon (NSW).

FOR SALE: "The Bunker"

The Hodges/Bradly storage building at Harden NSW, known as “The Bunker”, is reluctantly offered for sale as neither of us is able to foresee much opportunity to use it once the parts etc are all cleared out. We estimate that it will take us three months (up until the end of December 2013) to move the cars and parts-storage elsewhere.

The all-concrete building has a galvanised iron roof that includes skylights. We have recently had the electricity connected, the sewer re-established, a new water service installed and the huge rear door fitted with an electric opening mechanism. The high roof would enable a hoist to be easily installed if required. There is storage capacity for six cars with ease and up to nine cars if they are carefully placed.

Located in Harden’s main street( #135 Neill Street) and close to the Harden Railway Station on the Melbourne/Sydney train-line, the property has enough vacant land in front of the existing building on which to erect a smaller dwelling. It's about a two minute walk to the shops.

The history of the building is not known, but it is thought to have been built about 100 years ago.

It owes us just $50,000 and we are happy to take a recovery price.


Price: $50,000.

FOR SALE: 1950 Typhoon (C187109 / E187211)

This Typhoon is one of the last sixteen made, of which just four are known - another one in Australia and two in the UK. Robert Penn Bradly, I am sure, would explain the Typhoon's history much better than I. Penn has been very helpful in finding missing parts.

Condition of the Typhoon is BAD. Chassis requires welding in the normal places; sills need welding along with the body shell; original engine is in bits; spare block with car; preselect gearbox in one bit; back axle complete; roof removed from car; needs wood frame; doors complete; glass complete with some spares; dashboard with instruments; missing clock; good steering wheel; missing one front seat; front hubs removed from car; brakes complete but need work.

I would say the car is 90% complete but requires a lot of hard work by the new owner. Too many spare parts to list - three rear wings, four front wings, spare suspension and steering bits. A PDF file with photos of most of the items is available for perusal.

You will need a good car trailer and at least one tray-top ute plus two strong people to pick it all up. The car is in Western Australia.

My circumstances have changed over the last six months - hence the sale.

Any Typhoon is a rare car and this being one of just sixteen, even more so.

$1,000 (Firm).
