Ransley Veteran Ford Collection


Owned and meticulously restored by a Wynyard local, this extraordinary collection of 17 vintage Ford cars and motorbikes is the pride of the town, and rightfully so. The showpiece is a 1903 Model A Ford, which was the 31st off the factory line and is now the second oldest in existence. Enter through the Wynyard Visitor Information Centre.
