London, Sept 20 (ANI): A car buff has converted an old, dilapidated 1976 Land Rover into a gleaming replica of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Stuart Wallis transformed the 34-year old wreck to his own version of the famous flying car after three months, thousands of pounds and hours of hard work.

His daughter Lily watched the classic film and challenged him to make a similar one.

"My kids have always enjoyed the film so I thought 'why not'," the Telegraph quoted him as saying.

"I knew there was a good replica of the original at the Beaulieu Motor Museum so l computerised images of it to ensure ours was as accurate as possible," he added.

The vehicle features a 1,000-watt amplifier under the bonnet, loud speakers, eight sets of air horns capable of creating animal noises and police sirens, and even the red and yellow wings attached to the sides.

Wallis is using the car to raise money for The Cicely Foundation, which supports charities including Mosaic, which provides bereavement services for children, and the Youth Cancer Trust. (ANI)
