It is fitted with a 10-litre Hall-Scott aero engine with a horsepower output of around the 100hp level (that's what I seem to remember from my brief chat with the pilot/driver but don't quote me!). The "face" is an homage to the 1921 Fafnir team cars, which featured distinctive ‘faces’ on their radiator cowls and a clown’s hat radiator cap.
The event was the annual Kop Hill climb and they generally have a couple of these monsters at each event.

Only 100 HP from a 10 liter? I'd bet the torque had to be much higher?


The Captain and crew finally got their stuff together, now if we can only remember where we left it. :cool:

As soon as I posted that, I knew someone would query it so I dived into the abyss that is google and managed to find this from the Goodwood site.

".....and brakes that work a bit – albeit only on the rear wheels – are handy when you have a 10.0-litre engine to reign in. Power is actually modest at around 100bhp, but there’s 480lb ft of torque and it’s available at pretty much any engine speed. That said, it only revs to 1,800rpm which in top gear (fourth) is good for 100mph. It also has four reverse gears… "

That torque rivals that of a lot of the seventies muscle cars.
There's an old saying; Horsepower sells cars, and torque wins races. ;-)a

A real classic.
Reminds me of those early Greyhound buses and their curvaceous bodies.

Airstream trailers and campers are iconic, not just reminiscent of something.

Two beauties there Mike
Different but desirable.
The Chrysler is an awesome machine.
Looks immaculate.
Just looked them up. Very impressive.
