    Yes, thats exactly what it is. Though it may be early enough to be petrol.

    Electric Wheel Co made and sold spoked wheels like that to convert Fordson N's to blow ups

    There is more info about these wheels at

    http://hsqac.org/electric-wheel-company-jack-hilbing/

    The reference to Electric in the company name was down to a patented electric welding process for fixing the spokes to the rims. These wheels look likely to be pre WW2 as they were making pneumatic wheels in the 50s

    Excellent chassis. Alas it's in Cornwall, for I know where there are some bits and pieces! Commercar must have been reasonably common here in Australia 'back in those olden days...'

    That is a Jeffery Quad that was used by the French as a portee for artillery. You can just see the bulge in the roof to take the barrel. Thanks. Tim
    Some say the cup is half empty, while others say it is half full. However, in my opinion both are wrong. The real problem is the cup is too big.

    I think that is a tractor wheel. Interesting collection of stuff.
