This paper describes the Oregon Institute of Technology's entry in the 1973 Reduced Emission Devices Rally held in California, one which won first prize for class 2 vehicles. The vehicle was a 1961 Anglia with a redesigned 1971 Toyota internal combustion engine. The engine was converted to use liquefied petroleum gas. The wiring was changed from d-c to a-c because it offered longer spark duration and a turbocharger was added to the LPG fuel system. The modifications resulted particularly in lower carbon monoxide emissions. Details of the vehicle are described.
