Default Newbie here!


I'm new here...

Some of you may know my dad (bill53uk) with his very rare 550rpm 1hp Lister D.

When I was a young lad, I was always fascinated with his engine and I still am! I remember standing on the trolly while my dad opened her up making my ear wax fall out my ears. The engine use to shake so much I just couldn't keep myself off it... I loved it!

Now I've grown up a bit (22) I decided now's a good time to own 1 myself!

So... last xmas my dad bought me the best presant a young mechanical minded lad like me could ever want. A 1-1/2hp 1939 Lister D!

Currently Restoring her for the pottenend rally this month, Just needs a lick of paint and sticking back together and shes ready to rally!
