Donor "Vehicle"

Here's a (vague) picture of the rather unusual donor for the project, and library picture of how it might have looked in its prime.

The 'Husky' was built from a 1980 1600 Mk2 Escort, hence containing the 'right bits' for a Locost. The chassis was a box section ladder type, with everything else made from MDF. Having stood for 18 months the brakes were seized, but we dragged it out of the garage with the Landy, and subsequently got it running. The MOT tester's face was a picture when Andy drove it into his workshop! Needless to say it failed on more counts than it passed and the rest, as they say, is history...
