Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
Hmm, I wonder how hard it would be to mount a reverse manual valve body 400 behind that and go racing.
2400 horsepower, drum brakes, bias ply tires
that looks like a contraption the coyote would get from Acme....
The cab of the truck doesn't look British.
Probably the truck....a U.S. Lend-Lease!And, on the engine...I understand those sleeve-valve engine were very quiet. Was said that you only knew they were near you only when they passed!
I don't think that would run long without a radiator and oil cooler. The RCAF had several squadrons of Typhoons in 1944-45, I'm willing to bet this truck was used in parades in Canada to sell Victory Bonds. I don't believe the Brits ever received lend-lease trucks, Bedford and Austin worked overtime to supply the British Army and RAF with trucks. Most of the Lend-Lease trucks went to Russia. Without American supplies of everything from trucks to metal ingots to food Russia would have been defeated by the Wehrmacht. Al_in_Ottawa
Reno Air Races unlimited race. You can listen to a Sea Fury powered by a Bristol Centaurus sleeve valve engine...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bristol_Centaurus...running at full throttle.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRS5sa3n_o8
