1904 INNES Rear Entry Tonneau - see below

Seen here at Australian Motorlife Museum, Wollongong NSW.

 

"1904 INNES

This actual car took place in the 1905 Dunlop Reliability Trial, between Sydney and Melbourne.

 

Mr GP Innes was an enterprising Sydney person who was involved in the motor trade.

 

The Innes cars were built in Sydney, from imported parts. There is conjecture on how many were built, somewhere between two and six cars.

 

The Arnott family bought at least two cars, this single model and also a four cylinder model which also took part in the Dunlop Trial. Both vehicles finished, quite a feat on the awful roads of the day.

 

At this time this is the only Innes known to exist, and Motorlife has lodged an application for it to be declared an AUSTRALIAN PROTECTED OBJECT, which was successful.

...

This car is running, and carries Historic Registration. On important occasions, it takes to the roads around Motorlife.

 

Owned by Motorlife, part of the Butler Collection."
