Lisa's Lister. 1949 Lister D

I mentioned in the previous posts of the lady Auster pilot and her intrepid adventures. I may also have mentioned her many engineering adventures including making jet engines from turbo chargers and developing injection systems.
Well it all must have started somewhere.... Perhaps when an unsuspecting builder turned his back only to lose the Lister D from his perfectly good cement mixer!
And here is that Lister D having been systematically dismantled by a very curious 14 year old young lady.

Chemically cleaned and phosphate primed.

    1. Well, when I looked at November activity, that's the way it looked!

  2. Ha Ha we are not too snobish here, engineering is always noble!
