Model 4.14 from the 1960 manual motorised and built in period LRG parts. The chassis had to be extensively modified to fit the magic motor. The tail was improved with a 2 1/2" x 1 1/2" plastic plate to round it off. The front of the bonnet/radiator was extensively revised to accommodate the steering that was displaced slightly by the presence of the motor. It does move, just, needing a gentle nudge to get it going, it will then cross the kitchen floor (carpet is a no no) under its own power. Just emphasises how gutless the magic motor is.
