EARLY FORD VEHICLES
Also originally hailing from the collection of Bill Richardson’s great friend, Australian-based transport entrepreneur Jim Cooper, our collection of classic Ford vehicles is a sight to behold.
Acquiring Jim Cooper's collection of Fords - among them, our 1930s and 1940s Ford V8s - was a key catalyst in opening this previously-appointment only collection to the public.
(Eighteen shipping containers were required to transport Cooper's early Ford vehicle collection from Darwin, Australia, to what is today known as Bill Richardson Transport World here in Invercargill.)
Housed in the spectacular, custom-built Bill’s Shed, this display is one of the first visitors to Bill Richardson Transport World see – and it truly sets the tone for a world-class experience.
The gleaming line-up of voluptuous, grunty-looking classic Ford vehicles hailing from the 1930s and 1940s always prove a firm favourite with visitors to our Invercargill transport museum.
“This place is a real credit to the family of Bill Richardson who are continuing his dream. Whether you are into cars & trucks or not you will be impressed by the huge displays. Well worth the visit.”G and K Revell
