Ford car collector Tony Pernechele has been building a spectacular display of motoring history and horsepower at his Gidgegannup property, Bailup Farm, since 2003.
Mr Pernechele started collecting Fords in the 70s and now has more than 70 vehicles. For the die-hard Ford fan, or even non-Ford fans, Pernechele Ford Museum is a MUST!
Located 30km East of Midland / or around 45-minute drive from Perth City. 10400 Toodyay Rd.
Situated on a 94-acre property, he has one of the largest private Ford collections in Australia with most models represented and housed in a number of well-designed individual buildings.
There are big Fords, old Fords, older Fords, powerful Fords, rare Fords and elegant Fords. There are manuals, toy models, numberplates, signs, hub caps, tools and engines.
There are a few extra special cars. The 1926 Model T is one. It was once an RAC vehicle in Bunbury. There’s a 1971 Mustang which he accepted as a deposit in a business deal.
One of his favourites is a 1948 V8 Pilot, bought from a restorer. There are a full set of Falcon GTs, stretching back to 1967.
