Fresh Build - Straight Axel Gasser - Dragnasty  (Dragnasty. com domain comes with sale)  This is a one of kind Gasser.   You will not find another like it anywhere in the world.  If you google Austin Somerset Gasser. this is the only one you will find no matter how many photos you look through.   4” chopped top which lost the rear doors (They only built the Somerset A40 for two years and they never built a two door sedan. they were all four door cars).   It also has a custom tilt front end. Supercharged BBC with Doug Nash Five Speed!  600 plus hp at the rear wheels dyno tested.  This is one wild machine!  Absolutely NO EXPENSE SPARED!  Full two year plus build thread on the Jalopy Journal H. A. M. B. Forum.   Every build detail documented there.  I have put a few photos here on the ad but to be honest. if you Google Austin Somerset Gasser Dragnasty you will literally find 1000s of photos of this car in various stages of the build.  Do the same on YouTube and see videos as well.  Nothing to hide here. what you see is what you get.  The baddest one of a kind Gasser on the Planet!
