Listing Detail Tabs

There has never been a vehicle quite like this for sale, it is really one of a kind.

This dragster is powered by two enormous (36ltrs of combustion chamber) pulsejet engines which produce over 300lbs of thrust and 125dB of noise when running at full power.

The engines also glow orange/yellow hot. The sight and sound of this machine make it an ideal show-vehicle for attracting and entertaining a crowd.

It's also a lot cheaper to run than any other jet-powered vehicle, using regular BBQ LPG at a rate of about 6Kg per minute.

The vehicle has been featured on The Tem Show and will soon appear on The Discovery Channel. An earlier version (the Jet-powered Lazy-boy Recliner Rocker appears in this weekend's "Let's Get Inventin" programme at 5pm on Sunday July 9th.

It should be pointed out that this is not really a competitive dragster, it was build primarily as a test-bed for the large pulsejet engines. For someone interested in making a competitive vehicle, the engines and their support equipment could be fitted to a lighter, more effective chassis.

Anyone considering the purchase of this vehicle should be aware that regular maintenance of the engines is required but this consists of simply re-welding seams and/or rolling new parts from 0.9mm stainless steel when required.

One of the tires also needs replacing as it is about 5mm out of round.

If you want to be the proud owner of what we believe is the world's only pulse-jet powered dragster, then this is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

The vehicle is currently in Tokoroa and can be inspected prior to the end of the auction by appointment

This is definitely an "as is, where is" sale without warranty but the successful bidder will be shown how to safely start and run the engines and given all the information needed to maintain them. We'll even throw in a near-new petrol-powered leaf-blower for starting purposes.
