    That's an impressive vehicle. Is it an original factory/ works 3.4 or a homage to ?

    Not an original but a tribute car..The RS can also stand for Reed Special..built as a street sprint hillclimb car it sees regular competition at local events. I built the custom essex from parts i purchased from a south african bloke here..hence the 3.4 crank assembly..custom pistons and rods and highly modified heads with machined chambers in heads and large 302 v8 valves fitted..High compression and very torquey. Fun to drive.

    The flares were custom made rolled out of steel and welded on
    They almost look factory.
