The Anderson Special

Built and developed in the 1920's and '30s by Glasow garage owner James Anderson. The Mk2 Anderson Special is powered by twin humber engines and was a successful hill and road trial car of its time.

Some really forward thinking innovations on the csr, fold away headlamps, wind up main windscreen, fully independent suspension...

The mk2 was capable of speeds in excess of 100mph and was very competitive in its day.
Now on display at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery in Glasgow

Id love to take it for a blast up the "Rest and be thankful"

Saw that when we went to Glasgow last year, quite an ingenious little tool.

It's in a vintage specials book I have - they built the flat eight engine out of two Humber blocks or something?
