Survivor or Victim

Came across this A65 over the weekend, in at my mate Den's for a bit of a look at. Not my cup of tea by any stretch, but someone has put time, work and money into it. Difficult to tell when it became an unfinished project though, 30 months or 30 years, closer to the latter you would have thought.

Reckon it's around a '68 Lightning motor, all a bit precarious to squeeze 'round the back to be looking at engine numbers. Really wants saving from having to sit in there, a big Jap 4 would fit in there I'm sure.

Novel take on the rocker design, must look good in the rain. Can't figure out the brake anchor philosophy, have to take a better look and maybe have a word next time.
