That radiator could be used as the tail of a boat tail speedster.

Stay away from speed bumps!

I figure that radiator weighs as much as the entire body and radiator together on my boat-tail!

Thanks Erik! That's really something.

While not 1729 cu. in. like "the Beast," Henry Ford knew how to put a sizable motor in a light chassis too. The 1902 racers 999 and Arrow, with a 7x7 bore/stoke possessed 1077 cu. inches:


And the 1906 six cylinder racer, at 6x6 1/2 comes in at 1102 inches:

Rob,I have never seen that picture of either the Arrow or the 999 before! Is that MR Cooper?? Did you ever get a peek at the 6 cyl racer?? Bud in Wheeler,Mi.

Bud,
I'll post the entire article on a new thread,
Rob
