Out-of-this-world. Ahead of its time. Ground-breaking. Just some of the ways the latest arrival at the National Motor Museum could be described. The famous 1969 Holden Hurricane makes Birdwood its base for a limited time.
Come and see what the interior of a typical mechanical workshop looked like in the 1920s. Museum volunteers have created a replica 1920s Garage using tin signs, petrol pumps, original tools, advertising images, a fire extinguisher, and even a vintage typewriter and small office. The main feature is a rolling Ford Model T chassis, designed to show the various components of a chassis and running gear and how they fit together.
