BJP 500

Brian Pentland of Victoria, Australia built his BJP 500 in the late '50s. The car featured a swing axle at the rear, located by a trailing arm and upper transverse leaf spring. Front suspension was by lower wishbones and upper transverse leaf spring. Stub axles, steering and other components came from a Morris 8. A JAP engine drove through a Norton gearbox to the rear wheels.
