Here is a unique car currently under construction made from odd bits & pieces based on the vintage English Roadster design. Even the engine is hand made from an assortment of used and custom fabricated parts. The crankshaft, camshaft and pistons & liners are from a Cat D7 dozer engine, push rods and rockers custom made, crankcase custom made from steel welded up and industrial brass oil pumps chain driven from the cam-shaft. The rear wheels are chain driven from the axle shafts.
This was at the Dalby Heritage Festival here in southern Queensland. Some crawler photos were also posted from this show.







May never be able to be registered for on road but it sure goes well with a throaty exhaust throb. Ideal for a farm runabout.
