Hi, Iam looking to find a body like they used to run at Ascot. Not wanting to build a T speedster but more on the Model A theme. I like the way the back of the body follows the shape of the driver. Thanks, Scott
Here's a couple pictures of mine from when I found it. I'm not looking to sell, but a ridiculously large offer might change my mind.
It's on T frame rails, narrowed A axles, and was V8-60 powered.
I'm still collecting parts as budget allows, but there's nothing cheap about those 60hp flatheads...
We have car 33 that raced at Ascot, built by Barney Kloepher, and also driven by him, got second place in the Pacific Coast AAA, in 1930 driven by Ernie Triplett.
Triplett is in the car. We have many pictures form over the years.
For got the picture *%$#
Derek, That just what Iam looking for. My family raced the Tamale Wagon for years at Ascot. Had great success with car. Look it up and be impressed as I was. Many great drivers involved with the Alex Food,s car. Scott
Derek, the flathead guru around here (St Cloud) is a person named Merle Liethieser. He's always tuned in to where there are flatheads, prices and what it takes to build them. He's a great guy and as I recall had a little 60 he was starting on an engine stand while I was working on my '38 Ford pickup. I'll try to look his number up and if I'm able to get to Owatonna on Saturday I'll bring it with me.
The problem I have with parts for the midget is that it's the 7th car in line for priority when it comes to appropriating funds... I can occasionally find the parts, but can't justify the expenses when I have 6 other cars that all seem to need more important things first.
