If you are looking for a real deal speedster, I might consider selling my original Kuempel boat tail speedster. This car was assembled in the 1920s using a Keumpel Red-i-Kut K-9 speedster kit. Basically stock with a 1915 engine, Morton and Brett underslung kit on the front and rear, Rajo self steering spindles and House wire wheels. It was repainted on the outside about 30 ago but it otherwise original. It's a rare piece and probably the only original Kuempel Red-I-Kut speedster in existence. It was owned by the original family of the builder's until the 1980s when it became part of the St. Louis Museum of Transportation and then it was sold to a private collection. Only four owners from birth including myself. This is a real deal, authentic speedster that has been virtually unchanged since it was built almost 100 years ago. I might consider selling or trading it. Reason for selling? I can't fit into it without doing some body modifications, which I don't really want to do. See pictures in the Photo Gallery/ Speedster Section under GGZ. It's the red one. This is one of the few, period built speedsters in existance today.

Does this car have a running engine in it, if so a video of it starting and moving under its own power would help me decide?

Thanks for all the responses guys, but I'm not looking for a project (too old, too soon!!) looking for a turn key boat tail :)
BTW, if anyone is looking for a very nice red Rootlieb, check out "Randys" above. I already have one of those.

Yup, I'm pretty confidant that it is what he says it is, I'm just waiting on the video to solidify my decision.

Thanks for all the compliments guys, she is in a covered transport as we speak, should be here tonight. This is the quickest completion of a transport I have ever had. Signed the contract at 10:00 AM with the broker, had it assigned to a transport at 10:30 AM and the car was picked up at 7:30 pm all on the same day and all for a very reasonable price. Sometimes you just get lucky!!! :D :D :D

Tbz4u, it sure is a small world, isn't it.

John, You've got it!
