Hard to say just what that was :lol: But he had a lot of fun with it I know that.

It was hard to get pictures of it as there was always a crowd around it.

I think it is the 912, but it has been a very long time since I worked on one.

BSA Rocket 3. Shared with the Triumph Trident. The old version. One of the most beautiful sounding engines ever made.

I wonder what bhp they got out of that six. A friend's brother worked in the Chrysler slant sixes lab. He says they got 300 hp on the dynos from the 170 cubic inch with a hyper pack and tuned exhaust.

George bought a 1960 Valiant as soon as they were available. Did not have the Hyper-Pak, but he put a supercharger on it and managed to get a full atmosphere of boost into the intake manifold. Did nothing else to it, standard single exhaust, dinky little carburetor, three-speed stick shift. He was beating 340bhp (Under reported horsepower) 383 Roadrunners on Woodward avenue. He was a little worried about the bottom of the engine since that is a lot of boost, but it held up fine.

This sits in the Cobra kit car below. The car has an equal weight distribution to every wheel and a much more modern suspension than the original Cobra. If you know what to look for you'll see the engine sits behind the front cross member which is why the better weight distribution. And the power to weight ratio is much higher. My friend put this together from a Factory Five kit which mainly consisted of an upainted body.

It looks like he did a great job on it! How long did it take him?

It took him about a year and a half to 2 years but he wasn't working on it the whole time. He did that because he wanted to build a truly great car. But he did thousands of pop rivets on the floor etc.. He put a bunch of time into it.

That motor puts out about 450-475 hp as it sits. But he wanted to add more to it as soon as it was finished. I think he just wanted to work on it more really. But he talked about swapping out the Ford motor for a GM small block or adding nitro. He wanted to get up to 600 hp. The car only weighed about 1400 lbs. It's insanely fast as it sits.

He never even registered the car other than a certificate of origin. He didn't want to pay tax on it every year. He did drive it a few times and I got to ride in it once. It's still sitting in his garage with a giant trophy next to it where he took it to a car show and won first place. I'm talking a 6 foot trophy.

My friend passed away about a year ago. I talked to his wife recently. She still has the car. I'd love to get to own that car some day but it doesn't seem likely at this point.
