Bill Burke Belly tank

Burke's first belly tank lakester was built in 1946, made from a 165 gallon used on the Navy corsair just like the ones he'd seen during the war. Designed with the engine in front and a bicycle seat on the drive shaft to sit as low as possible
Burke ran the car in 1946, reaching a speed of 131.96 mph. 1947 he built a new one from a larger P-38 Lightning.
