Back in 1983 my father-in-law (the Corsair pilot) & I built a 2 seater Triumph Spitfire with a 3 cylinder Kabota engine (18 hp) if I remember right. This car got 100 mpg would go 60 mph on the freeway and pulled like the dickens. Quick, no! Acceleration, no, but it was still pretty neat. It was called a Centurion. You used the Triumph’s frame & running gears, built the body out of plywood, urethane foam board & fiberglass.
This car once resided in the Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum along with his Cleveland Air Race memorabilia. Though Crawford gave up the aviation part, so I’ve lost touch with where those things are now. Although his Thompson Air Race Trophy reside at the Pensacola Navel Museum.
Hi gang making my to do list and wondering about my window regulators.. I have the OPG catalog and shows a few but not for a 69 Bonneville it does show the front L&R that would fit but nothing for the back side windows would they be the same?Not sure why it is so hard to find interior parts for 69 was even looking at door panels and sure enough none for that year of Bonneville they have everything for all the others.Or does anyone know if they can be inter changed ,I know back in the day you could do that,
