#357266 - 14th Oct 2009 10:57am Radial Engine in a Goggomobile !!
Pinzgauer
Unregistered


Being an air-cooled lump enthusiast, I just came across this little gem. Some of the more "mature" (ahem) folk on here might remember Goggomobiles from the 70's era. 0-60mph in half an hour downhill etc.

Take a look at this guy's engineering skills.

Can't see Mr Plod letting it loose on the roads here !

ENJOY!!

Not sure if it's a forward-reverse selector mechanism. Looks like a Voith torque converter/fluid flywheel. Maybe no gearbox needed. No clutch either.
My German is non-existant. Can anyone make out what he's saying when he's moving that selector lever ??

Hardly surprising. In a full on impact, the driver and passenger would be crushed by the engine.
