Congrats, those bottles and the badge are in great condition, what a shame that old Mk II Ford Zephyr (1956/7-1961/2) was left there. they were brilliant cars,

Thanks for posting the pics,

John.

This is a rare find. Unfortunately it was damaged. Up until a few weeks ago i didnt know what it stood for. WAIB stands for West Australian Imperial Bushman.
Apparently this badge is so rare its only seen in photos.
