In reply to # 30398 by andrewroudny Belly tankers are my new Pinterest obsession. If you take a belly tanker's innards and bolt them to a model t frame, that's basically my next project.
They have been my dream since I was a teen (65 now) and I am currently the planning and design phase of my second CycleKart.

After yesterday's CycleKart Garage Tour, I woke up at 3:00 am planning the front axle in my sleep, had to get up and look at my Belly Tank

Hey, if anyone needs a “larger” inspiration car to scale down, just start with the “Beast of Turin” Fiat!!

Bob,
How inspired due you think those guys were to cool. For sure I think you could build it 1/2 scale an still have lots of room. Maybe a little short though.

I'm surprised you didn't include a video of The Beast of Turin, it is truly a beast!

It's even better when you see it in the flesh. The bonnnet (hood to the guys on the left side of the Atlantic) has about a 1/2" to spare over the top of the engine and maybe 9" under the sump. Magnificent to be on track at the same time (Small self promotion here)

I've considered doing it at some point. I thought I might tuck the engine right where my lower left leg would be,
let my leg go straight down into the belly and have gas and brake on the right. Then you could run the chain drive and have the exhaust right out the side! It'd get warm in there though.

That is absolutely fantastic. I laughed all the way through the Video. Between the English narrative and the belching flames.... wow! Amazing!
Can only dream of the opportunity to drive something like that. Totally cool.

Todd, I saw it in the flesh at Retromobile in Paris, winter before last. It's truly incredible even to stand near (under/beside) it. Fun fact, Fiat built many huge cars in its early days, some right near here, in Poughkeepsie, NY!

Indeed John. The early Fiats and American Fiat's were incredible machines. I have never seen a S76 running down the road. Makes me want to dig the speedster out and take it for a spin even in the cold and pouring rain, its no fire belching racing machine but it's still a load fun.

How big is that engine???
I love his description of pre-turn-of-the-century cars. Flat out at 8 MPH, cruise at 4, break down every 600 yards.

l guess Ford's Quadricycle was ahead of it's time in 1896. It'll go flat out at 15 MPH, cruise at 10, and I've driven it miles without breaking down. Knock on wood.

My only pre turn of the century machine I have i have to pedal ! Bailey and I have taken the ott-six Caddy on a tour at an alarming 18+ mph rate. Had a water hose burst from the open chain drive whipping against it causing us to loose our water all over the road then the battery came loose and shorted against the radiator tank causing a small fire. But otherwise we successfully caught up with the other Horseless carriages at lunch and had a uneventful return trip. Early cars are the best!
