TAFE Queensland SkillsTech are quite literally forging forward with the Thornycroft restoration project.
Parts for a 1926 Thornycroft A2 are not easily sourced at your local auto shop; in fact many of her original components were handmade.
A new engine fan, headlight rim and steering wheel have been cast at TAFE’s own foundry in Acacia Ridge with the use of Ron Toy’s Thornycroft as a template.
The timeline of the restoration is leading towards having her on display at the 2021 Brisbane Truck Show.
