There were many great displays like this one by Alex Holland. The car is a 170Va from 1951 and it is displayed with the coal fired gas kit. During WW2 many models were converted to run on gas produced by burning wood and coal in specially designed canisters mounted on both ends. The resulting gas was used to power the engine while the heat was diverted to the car's interior, a much welcomed solution in wintertime.
