Dacre Stubbs Photo Collection - The First Maybach

Charlie Dean became involved with racing after the wartime. He wanted to build his own racing car and the first thing to do was find a suitable engine. A friend who owned a war surplus wrecking yard had a ‘Demag’ half-track armoured personnel carrier which was powered by a Maybach 6 cylinder 3.8 litre SOHC, cross flow engine.
