I find it really hard to believe that a 4hp engine can swing a 4' prop.

The backrest is the fan screen. Better get a haircut.

One of a kind home made car that is driven by a wooden propeller with a engine behind it. Frame is made of wood and metal. This is truly a Portlandia type creation. It comes with a 4 hp Honda engine, has a 4' wooden prop, has good rear brakes (for rear wheels only), a throttle lever and a vintage steering wheel. It was found in an old barn of a house we cleaned out in Portland. There is no dry rot on the wooden frame. It is 9' long and 4 1/2' wide. It has good tires.
This is a project car that needs some added safety features in front of the propeller.

Just think of the fun you could have with this unique vehicle!

Please call Regan at 360-433-7595 7am -- 8pm

No texts, please, as we have had scammers texting on craigslist items. We will not respond to a text, so please call. Thanks for your understanding

CASH SALES ONLY, PLEASE. For some reason this is the only way I could do it sorry guys .

I'd offer some bird baths for trade. Seems there's a bit of a collection.

Since when did hideous plastic/vinyl 70's GM steering wheels become "vintage"?
