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.

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

I was the one that did the front ending of the chassis for John after the top end incident, It must have been around 1997 ish. Neil Hurlock started the tube work and I helped him finish it and did all the Tig welding.

The replacement tubes were of CDS and not Moly.
