Found this while reading the thread about pick-up trucks. Jim
That looks scary fast but it sure smokes a lot.
The chain drive catalytic converter doesn't seem to be working.
I want one.......
Looks like quite a ride!
That thing is a beast! Looks like it would eat Model Ts for breakfast.
Here is the before video of this 1911 Fiat S76.
Has the aerodynamics of an obese bumblebee.
The radiator would look good on a T speedster......
And you American's thought you invented the term..."There's no substitute for cubic inches" eh?
If i had my druthers,i would druther see Old 16 waltz around the Village at The Old Car Festival again!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 1906 Locomoble that Won the 1908 Vanderbuilt Cup Race!!! There are video's on line and watch how they start the 1100 cu in on the shower of spark's!! Bud in Wheeler,Mi.
That radiator could be used as the tail of a boat tail speedster.
Stay away from speed bumps!
I figure that radiator weighs as much as the entire body and radiator together on my boat-tail!
Do any of you know what's under the hood?
The beast has a 1729 cubic inch four cylinder engine.
Thanks Erik! That's really something.
While not 1729 cu. in. like "the Beast," Henry Ford knew how to put a sizable motor in a light chassis too. The 1902 racers 999 and Arrow, with a 7x7 bore/stoke possessed 1077 cu. inches:
And the 1906 six cylinder racer, at 6x6 1/2 comes in at 1102 inches:
Rob,I have never seen that picture of either the Arrow or the 999 before! Is that MR Cooper?? Did you ever get a peek at the 6 cyl racer?? Bud in Wheeler,Mi.
I'll post the entire article on a new thread,
