My cousin and I are currently rebuilding the Altered which was Dave Gibbons 'Rough Diamond' with a blown big Chevy and Topolino body. Here are some pictures from a couple of months ago, we have made progress since and intend to get the car out in the daylight over the weekend as its now fully rolling.

Page 3 was a great read, its certainly travelled well in its time.

This is going to be the engine for now, it previously lived in my Model a street car and ran 10.0's on treads.

That tow car was a 5.3 V12 XJ! Fuel consumption towing was around 8 mpg.

Norm
just to add some info to your original post, john Powis's Henry's revenge has been sold to a chap in West Yorkshire along with a mountain of Cleveland parts! when I was down at the workshop Saturday I noticed in the corner the original front end which had a love in with some armco and a new tripod front end had been fitted, did you update the chassis for John? it is very neat I will try and post a picture tonight
