If anyone here is familiar with this car, particularly the mechanical details, please contact me. It is owned by Charles Ford in Salisbury NC, and currently listed for sale.
I remember seeing this car on the MTFCI tour 1994 when I was 11 years old, and have wanted a red boattail RAJO speedster ever since...
I visited Charles at his home about 1998 and saw the car then.
The ad mentioned it has two carbs, but fails to mention it has two complete engines coupled together, both with Rajo heads, or did at that time.
I met Charles a few times later on tours, but that vehicle was not discussed.
This was a different car with only one engine.
Unfortunately, it sold while I was waiting for them to email me more pictures and info.
That car in the photo sure looked like the same speedster with the extra long hood for two engines. Same red color!
If you would be interested in a Frontenac speedster I could help you out. I'm going to be selling mine once it's back together.
Ned, I may be interested... post some pictures!
Charles' car was kind of special in a way, as it was the first boattail speedster I ever saw when I was 11 years old on the 1994 MTFCI tour. It was low, loud, and fast. I've been dreaming about red boattail speedsters now for 19 years.
