I gotta ask this man....how will you get it out of the basement??? Do you have an access door into the basement big enough to get it out without disassembling it?? What size flatty did they run in those?? Real sweet race car. Duel Stromberg's three speed? When was the last time you heard it bark???

thanks guys, the car fits under the stairwell and into the corner, i take it out to a few shows every year. It has a 60 horse flathead and an in/out box, pretty much direct drive. Since there is no starter we push it up to about 20 mph and throw it in gear and she usually fires right up. The local dirt speedway here let us run it around the track for an expedition run a few years ago, it was really neat to talk to some of the older gentleman afterwards that remembered these cars.
