Old Car weathervanes are a perfect addition to the home of anyone who owns, loves or is involved with automobiles. They were the days, these were the cars. On a Sunday the young ladies would parade along the “Chicken Run”. The guys (who had automobiles) would cruise along and if they were lucky, they might pick up some chicks – or so the story goes. Anyhow, these vehicles (mounted as weathervanes) are still feeling the rush of the wind as they indicate to us on the ground which way the wind is going. Which ever way that is, the Old Car is always heading straight into it.
This is the ideal present for someone that you know who wants to add that special something to their home. Perhaps even treat yourself.
Made of Stainless Steel these black old car weathervanes will give years and years of enjoyment and service.
How It Works
Both the arrow and the car figure revolve on a ball bearing over a solid Stainless Steel shaft. Well balanced and proportionally correct these Australian made weathervanes from Glenview Products actually work. The weathervane is made of Stainless Steel and powder-coated to stand out against he sky and like the early Ford motor vehicles, you can have any colour so long as it is black.
A stainless steel mounting plate is available for fixing to a flat surface such as the ridge line of a metal roof or a wooden garden post. Alternatively there is a Stainless steel gable bracket available for fixing to the apex of the gable (see Fixing Brackets). If you would like to order a fixing bracket to suit this product, please select from the product options above. Fixing brackets ordered with an Aussie Weathervane will not incur any additional delivery charges.
Which one to use ?
Which one ?
Gable Bracket (Stainless Steel) is used for attaching to the face of the Gable. Suitable for both Tile and Metal Roofs. Because the shaft extends down the face of the Gable, it is 200mm longer than the ridge line bracket.
Stainless Steel Mounting Plate (supplied flat with laser cut slots to allow plate to be bent to the exact pitch of the roof). Used on the roof ridge of metal roofs. Also adaptable to flat surfaces and mounting on posts.
No Mounting Bracket when only the Weathervane is required. Purchasing the suitable bracket makes installation easy and enjoyable
