Very cool. That's a commercially built body, it seems, radiator and all, yet still on wooden wheels.

Spent all the $$$ on the Hassler's and body. Pretty serious speedster though - lowered and has the wishbone connected to the frame.

Looks like he might want to invest in some new tires.

Happy motoring, Warren

That is a fantastic original speedster photo!
The shell is probably hiding a brass radiator. That was fairly common to make the car look more modern. It does appear to be a manufactured/purchased body, hood, and shell. It is interesting that the wishbone is split to the sides of the frame. However, it appears to still only be mounted only over the axle. Splitting the wishbone was sometimes simply easier than extending it when the front end was moved forward for lowering like this.
Great photo Jay, thank you for posting it.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
