Well, the name on it is in blue/red "bubble" type lettering & reads "FAT ALBERT" so it's about as close to purple as it's going to get.
As far as a propeller, that won't work, as it occasionally gets used for an open car, and since FIA ruled against Jim Hall & the Chapperall with regards to "movable areodynamic devices" it would, in fact, cover the addition of a propeller. Sorry.

Just in case, I'm sitting here with a rather LARGE BloodyMary, made with Beefeater Gin !

as soon as I'm done typing this, I'm headed to the kitchen for a refill, as this one is now defective.

Filming of the chase scene took three weeks, resulting in 9 minutes and 42 seconds of footage.

Kiloliter is a rarely encountered metric term, but it is useful on this thread!
