VH-KCC Auster J/5P Autocar
The J/5P was the Autocar with the
145 hp. Gipsy Major 10 engine. What with that, and the rather
odd livery, this
machine hardly looks like an Autocar at all! The above shot was
taken by Geoff
Goodall at an air
show at RAAF Pearce, Western Australia, in April 1977.
Author David Eyre,
of Perth, took a
shot of it a decade later (April, 1988) at Jandakot wherein it had a
paint job (below). This rare machine has been preserved and is a
static display at the
Mining Gallery" at the Miner's Hall of Fame at Kalgoorlie, WA.
