I bet this guy might qualify...my work partner and I helped him get his "truck" running. He was broke down outside Yellowpine.
His truck was an engineering marvel...and actually pretty impressive that it still ran.
He had an old soup can as a ground for it. The distributer bounced out when he hit a bump (reason he was broke down) We used an old shirt and some wire he had in the back to "fix" it.
The fuel pump was hard wired to the battery and came out of an old RV. He had the fuel pump "mounted" on the outside of the grill to keep it cool. He said if he didn't do that it would vapor lock. The down side to the fuel pump being hard wired, is when he shut the truck off he had to jump out, open the hood, and unhook it or fuel just keep flooding into the carb. But, it DID work.
