The Mini Ardun Flathead Engine: Miniature V8’s that Really Gallop

Posted in Ford, General, Toys by will bee | August 1st, 2007 | 3 Responses |

What happens when you mix a CNC Machine and a craftsman with a lot of time on his hands? In the case of Ron Bement of Denver, Colorado you get working classic engine reproductions in miniature. So far Bement has built an Offy, a Flathead and is now building a 7-inch Ardun engine replica.

The beauty of these engines is not just in the meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail, but that these aluminum beauties actually run. Take a look at the following video and enjoy the sites and sounds of these tiny, methane fueled,  28-hp V8’s. Then after the video head on over to the FordBarn for more photos and information.

Thanks for sharing, Bas!

    I love the concept of those miniatures.
    I’ve only been able to find a few examples of them being used in rc cars. Are there any more that have been installed in working rc’s? They sound soooo great!
