This seems familiar, was it posted before?

The rediscovered body was dropped onto a Simca chassis.

Indian at Bonneville, before Burt Munro. Note the hand-hold on the tail fin.


...and since I can't find a more appropriate thread:


http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2017/04/douglas-pidcocks-1922-electric.html

Built in 1922 (but would be in style today) and it hit the magazines 20 years later, in the 1940s.

Just A Car Guy: the Woody Golf Buggy, designed by Lord March (Goodwood), built by Andy Dance, fabricator and frequent collaborator with Goodwood to build carts, wacky racers, and art deco garages



Quote:
In 2007 ... rather than entertain standard ‘plastic’ golf buggies, the Earl of March commissioned buggies based on a vehicle his grandfather had designed and built in the 1930s.

That revolutionary car was called the Brakenvan and it was distinctive for its then-groundbreaking commodious design and ash-wood framed body. Factors like wheel-size were a big aesthetic obstacle, an issue finally overcome by developing ‘aerodyn’ spats to cover them.

I know this is a multiple repeat, but these photos are just so pretty. Must be the black lacquer paint I assume.

That's what you call 'over-restored'.

I went looking for any new pictures of a really pretty car (the Type 64 looks pin-headed to me), the Volkhart-Saggita V2. Google delivers:



http://www.fahrzeugbilder.de/name/galerie/kategorie/Neueste/hierarchie1/PKW+Oldtimer/hierarchie2/Sonstige/digitalfotografie/96.html

First time I've seen it in silver. Weren't there two of them?


https://oldtimer-veranstaltung.de/service/messerundgang-techno-classica-essen-2015/
Google says it's on that page but I couldn't find it.

I'll say it again. Someone needs to walk around that car with a smartphone and take about 200 pictures that can be stitched together into a uniform polygon mesh that can be deconstructed into a box model with hard and soft edges. That could then be reprocessed further to feed input to a 3D printer. Or Pepakura Designer.

Google also showed me this from this very thread, two years ago. Remember? I didn't.

niky liked the Z-shape incorporated into the side vent. I like the way the leather hood strap is incorporated into the side vent.

Here's why I said that:

Flat paint, flat skirts.

OTOH, here's the interior of the black replica with it's 'bell-cord' door pull and textured fabrics.



I've seen a color picture of the original interior and it was more oatmeal colored than gray. Good German carpeting, & etc. It was like a supercar of the 1930s, but without the V12.
