Andromeda was built in 1977. Visually, Andromeda is based on a 1923 Model T Ford but is technically a far cry from Nykilodeon. It is powered by a supercharged Chrysler Hemi V8 engineĀ  of 426 cu. in. capacity.

Andromeda was voted second "Best Hot Rod of the century", after Revenge. She accelerates from 0 to 60 m.p.h. in 4.3 seconds but is slower than Revenge! She also held the record for being the fastest accelerating 0 to 60 m.p.h. street-legal car in Britain!


Andromeda has definitely had a life, built by Nick Butler the T Bucket collected an array of trophies and was years ahead of its time. The car was written off in a serious accident but with fortunately no injuries to the driver. Edd Brown, a former employee of Nick, embarked on a monumental rebuild. Kay Stapley re-applied the paint and graphics and, with advice from Nick , Edd continued and brought Andromeda back to the roads of the UK.

Andromeda was taken to many shows including CC show in 1978 and at Crystal Palace in 1979 (see right).
