November Car Of The Month 1959 TURNER RACE CAR SCCA VINTAGE RACE CAR - 997cc We are offering this - 1959 Turner vintage race car in good running order. It has minimal use on a "COMP TUNE" engine overhaul. The paint was done in recent times. It just had its clutch replaced (engine out job). The brakes were recently overhauled. It appears to have it original seats. The mileage on the odometer reads 49633, but we have no way of telling whether or not it was original. It does have its VSCCA log book with it. The last entry was in 1995, at the New Hampshire International Speedway. There is an obsolete FL title showing one of the previous owners as a lady in Jupiter, Florida. There are aircraft style seat belts with it, sitting in the trunk. When this car was converted from street to a vintage racer is unknown. The earliest entry in the log book was 1991, again NHIS. Our guess is that it was a race car long before. The engine sounds great. When warmed up it idles at about 70 lbs. It doesn't seem to overheat at all. We have only driven it a few miles. It is very fast and it sounds great. No smoke ever. It is cold natured until fully warmed up. It does have a non-original VDO tachometer. It is equipped with an oil cooler. There are extra holes in the dash board, for which we have no idea. There is no top or side curtains with the car. It does have the finned aluminum competition gearbox. The gearbox seems fine. 1st and reverse gears do not seem overly noisy or to have any problems. You can make it walk out of 2nd gear, however, on harsh deceleration. Driving normally it does not seem to occur. We are selling the car with a Bill of Sale. We can register the car, however. Please inquire if this is something that you require, before bidding and we can discuss the time frame involved to do this. This car is presently in running and operating condition, but we feel at minimum it should be checked over by a qualified shop before using on the street. We make no representations that it is safe to drive on the road in its present condition. It is an old race car and they always tend to be in need of something. This is a wild little 997cc screamer. It weighs next to nothing. In the right hands it should be able to be made to be very competitive in vintage racing. We are not experts on this sort of car. It is sold AS-IS FOB central Virginia. We encourage interested parties to come and see the car or send their expert. More photos are available. Send us your email address and we will do our best to help any and all seriously interested prospective buyers. Call - Nate Thompson 434-509-6219 for information or appointment to come and see the car.
