1929 Rugby on Australian TV

1929 Rugby on Australian TV

While watching season two of Miss Fisher Mysteries in an episode called Marked for Murder I noticed what appeared to be a 1929 or 28 Rugby Touring car.
It had a lime green body with black fenders and top. There were 3 or 4 scenes with it clearly parked next to a building. I enjoy this TV show on DVD and always thought it would be nice to see a Durant in an episode, then the next time I watched here it was. The Durant appears fairly early in the episode that has Inspector Jack visiting the scene where a rival soccer team captain had been murdered.

The shows is as you guessed a Murder Mystery that takes place in Melbourne during the late 1920's and Miss Fisher is a beautiful and wealthy playgirl detective. She's easy one the eye and impeccably dressed to the nines and now the show has had a Durant motorcar in at least one program.

Hello Rick, you certainly have good taste.
Miss Fisher is one of Pam and My favourite TV shows.
They have great vehicles, sets and costumes.
If you read Wikipedia, Essie Davis, (Miss Fisher) is quite an accomplished actress.
