British hot rods at their best!!

Its do not known when this motor was first made but the pic shows the car in 1928 at Shelsley in the hands of Keith Anderson. It was known then as the Keith Anderson special. SIt was fitted with a GN Akela supercharged engine with a MG front axle which was underslung the extruded aluminium chassis that is said to be off an aircraft. The transmission was GN and still is. Anderson apparently never really got the blown GN engine to go very well and he got fed up with it and put it for sale. Look again at the guy on the start line thats not just blocking his ears thats supercharger pain. Keith with Sunday best shirt and welding glasses hair back in the wind.
