Ted Agen built a cycle car in 1912 at his Euroa Cycle Works on Binney Street, Euroa (160km north of Melbourne). It was powered by a JAP 6 h.p. engine.

Mr 'Ted' Ager notifies that he opens a bicycle depot next the Euroa post-office on Saturday (to-morrow) with a new and personally selected stock of machines.

Advocate (Melbourne) Sat 27 Jan 1912

Mr. Ted Ager, of the Euroa cycle depot, has just completed the building of an up-to-date cycle car, or runabout, to seat two riders. For appearance and simplicity of action it will bear comparison with anything on the market. It is driven by a 6 h.p. cycle engine, whose working is simplicity itself. Any one who understands a motor-cycle could take charge of the car after ten minutes instruction. Mr. Ager proposes to give the car a severe testing during the holiday season, for which he has projected a tour through the central and western towns of the State.
