This particular vehicle is serviced by us.
These are just some of the vehicles our customers have entrusted with us.
White Scout Car
Before arriving at Mawson Motors the "White" as it is affectionately known had been used as a utility vehicle at an airfield and all its armour had been stripped and was missing. Hundreds of hours went into researching and recreating the armour plates that are a 100% match to the originals. There were hundreds of other original parts that needed to be sourced from gun mounts to bearings and everything in between before the vehicle could be completed and Robin painstakingly collected them from all over the world. White was rebuilt from the ground up, there wasn't a nut, bolt or washer that wasn't taken apart and put back together. As you can see in this gallery it was all worth it, the White is one of the best and most original examples in the country and is a talking point where ever it goes.
Dingo Armoured Car
The Dingo was a WWII British small armoured car and was a very advanced and complex machine for it's time with constant 4 wheel drive, hydraulic brakes and double wishbone suspension all round. The Dingo is powered by an overhead valve Rolls Royce 6 cylinder engine driven through a pre-selection gearbox and was quite fast and very agile over broken ground. This particular vehicle was imported into Australia in 2010 and has been maintained by Mawson Motors ever since. The Dingo was only built in small numbers and is quite a rare vehicle, with none ever entering service with the Australian army this makes finding spare parts a very difficult job, in the past Mawson Motors has had to custom make unavailable parts to keep the Dingo in tip top shape.
LP2 Bren Carrier
This is an LP2 the Australian version of the famous Bren Carrier and was built at the Newport rail yards in 1940. The Bren Carrier is powered by a Ford flat head V8 through a standard ford 3 speed gear box. This particular Carrier was recovered from a farm in Winchelsea Victoria in the 1980's. The current owner and owner of Mawson Motors, Robin Mawson, grew up in the area and played in the carrier as a kid. He bought the carrier from the farmer as a wreck in the 80's and spent uncounted hours bringing it lovingly back to life. Robins vehicles are certainly not museum pieces only for show, they are used all year round for all sorts of activities including: ANZAC day, military re-enactments, public shows and recently in a track event at Winton raceway! Needless to say after 30 years of constant use the carrier needed a refresh and it was once again re-built from the ground up in 2015/16 wining the coveted best Carrier prize at the 2017 "Year of the Carrier" Corowa Swim-in event.
