1925 Ford Track Racer that some call a speedster. The quintessential American hot rod with period race equipment. In the twenties this would have been typical of car racing attractions at state fairs throughout North America.
California built T engine with Model A Ford crank topped off with the famous RaJo Model BB cross flow OHV. With custom Intake and Carter carb for great performance. The standard chassis was lowered and the front end is stabilized with unique accessory damper. The wire wheels are newly respoked Hayes 21i inch demountables with Excelsior competition tires with extra durable stuff compound. Differential has large drum brakes for stopping... if you want to!
The interior is period correct ribbed tan leather and flooring is gray linoleum trimmed in black metal. Dash is solid wood and shows well finished in clear urethane with minimal gauges as original. Steering wheel is wrapped with jute twine for positive grip.
This restoration sports a rebuilt and reconstructed “Faultless” boatltail race body as originally available. The period correct restoration was performed in 2006 by Edwards Antique Automobiles, highly regarded specialists in early vintage cars.
Easy to start ( electric starter) and exciting to drive. This car accelerates quickly to speed. This car has a known history having participated in the Celebration of Speed at Ormind Beach, Florida in 2006 and was invited and attended at the Amelia Island concours in 2008.
Serviced and ready to be enjoyed.
