Wirklich Special!

Gestern hatten wir es ja mit der Garage….und in so mancher steht nichts rum sondern es entsteht dort was. Hier ein Riley Special der einen besonderen Motor hat…..sehr schön…und wir dürfen beim ersten Startversuch dabei sein! Beim Film stand folgende Info: Tim Reynolds starting his recently completed Riley Moth for the first time. Gromit on the camera and Wallace in the car !!. The car is based on a Riley 9 chassis left over from the restoration of a saloon. It uses Riley axles with a vintage Rolls Royce gearbox plus an additional step up box. Engine is a 1930 Gipsy 1 from a Gipsy Moth. The engine has been uprated using Gipsy Major parts and high compression pistons, carburation is by 4 SU’s. The build took approx 6 years of spare time. Looking forward to driving it.
