This is my version of the classic motor car chassis. I have taken inspiration from Motor car model plans. Features include:
- Ackermann steering
- Leaf sprung chassis
- 3 Speed gearbox with reverse
- Cooling fan
Due to the limitations of Meccano the clutch pedal and linkage had to be mounted on the left.
The Real Bentley
The gear box is the type first described in Meccano Magazine - April 1949 - page 155: How to use Meccano parts. It is an all pinion type relying on the partial meshing of the teeth.
A short video of the chassis may be seen On YouTube.
