I'm building a Spit6 and the engine came out of a GT6. Seems simple enough.
The engine was a early straight across manifold, so out of a '73, not what was expected, but the other engine was in parts all around the floor in boxes.
The early one really rev'd up well, just had major blow by and white smoke, so a rebuild was done. I ended up with almost 5 cars to do this little project, but the original boxes were all over the place, so got a small barn to stick it out of the way. Decided to go thru them as I putting them away and found a couple of small headlights 4001 4 1/2 inches with buckets, one single filament and other double.
Surprise they worked after being rattled around in a box for 40 years or more. They are T3 and very bright, might use the single in a old 6V spotlight I have.
This all tells me, my little buggie has a Vitesse engine, according to the parts boxes. Engine # KD 7482E may be a GT6 one, only Andy will know. Hi Andy, hope all is well with you.
