    Six 4,000cc cylinders; 18 spark plugs; 24,000cc

    Car is a standard 1913 Mercedes 28/95 body that has been re-powered to match a Zborowski vehicle - it's a Chitty! originally came fitted with a still rather large six cylinder 7280cc engine

    The 24l engine was also used to power Zeppelin airships in WWI. This particular engine is one of two ever built and possibly the only one in existence today.

    Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is the vintage racing car which is featured in the book, musical film and stage production of the same name. Writer Ian Fleming took his inspiration for the car from a series of aero-engined racing cars built by Count Louis Zborowski in the early 1920s, christened Chitty Bang Bang. The original Chitty Bang Bang's engine was from a Zeppelin dirigible.
    The Zborowski Chitty cars:

    Chitty 1 was a chain-driven customised Mercedes chassis containing a 23-litre 6-cylinder Maybach aero-engine
    Chitty 2 had a shorter wheelbase, an 18.8-litre Benz Bz.IV aero-engine
    Chitty 3 was based on a modified Mercedes chassis with a 160 hp (120 kW) Mercedes single-overhead-camshaft six-cylinder aero engine
    Chitty 4 (also known as the Higham Special) was Louis Zborowski's largest car, using a 450 hp (340 kW) V12 Liberty aero engine of 27 litres capacity

    Reminds me of Brutus.

    46,000cc BMW engine lifted from a WWII bomber



    And 'the chain-drive, from a machine the devil uses to rotisserie people'.

    Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. The challenges of the role for the car would take six different iterations, with only one actually running and the rest were movie props, used in different ways as the car went through all terrains, including the air.

    The running car was powered by a 3.0-liter Ford 6 cylinder engine. It sported a dashboard plate from a WWI British fighter plane, and had a red and white cedar boat deck. It was registered as a Gen 11 plate, and was fully street legal.

    Correcto. I liked the interiors in those. They were unique.

    Doors handles are wrong for an Ital, I think it is a Marina.

    It's a 1978 Morris Marina Estate
    Minimal differences to an Ital

    Some stats on the Marina from Wiki:

    It was a popular car in Britain throughout its production life, beating its main rival, the Ford Escort, to second place in UK car sales in 1973 and taking third or fourth place (behind the Escort) in other years. The car was exported throughout the world, including North America, and assembled in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Malaysia. A total of 1.2 million were built.

    According to various sources, the Marina ranks among the worst cars ever built.

    The 1980 replacement for the Marina, the Ital, was the same car with only mild styling changes.

    A survey conducted by Auto Express magazine in August 2006 reported that 745 of the 807,000 Marinas sold in Britain were still on the road, fewer than one of every thousand sold, making it the most-scrapped car sold in Britain over the previous 30 years.

    As of December 2019 there are currently 374 Marinas on the road in Britain.

    did it rust visibly and to the extent a year into your ownership you could pick most of it up with a magnet?

    I cut the roof off and used it as a Roo shooting vehicle, was rust free low km when I got it.... thoroughly thrashed it so fired up the bulldozer, crushed it then pushed it into a large hole I dug to bury old wrecks when they were spent.

    The auctions were full of them back in the day.

    It's a TVR S, but cannot say which model.

    As it's a J reg, I would assume it's an S1?

    Bloke down the road from me had one in the U.K back in the day.
