Why is oval racing popular in the US? Circuit courses were
developed to address these concerns; the oval became the norm since
they would allow spectators a better chance of seeing the entire
race, from start to finish, and would take up much less real estate
than a straight line course. Plus, there was an abundance of oval
horse tracks that were being underutilized so several of them were
converted to car tracks.
For consignment, a custom build on a Model A car by Ford. This car
harkens back to hot rodding earlier years, but with the extended
cowl could have been used for racing as well as doing ok on the arm
Painted in coral similar to the papaya painted McClaren's of modern
day F1 we have ourselves a race car/nifty hot rod. The tub with its
extended cowl lengthens the bodywork but gives it a racier look.
Upfront a Curtis radiator grille housing with chromed bars
protecting the horizontal ribs. These are very similar to a
football helmet face guard that a kicker would wear. Flanking on
either side is a round headlight in a chrome housing. The hood for
the engine comes with the car, but it will not fit due to the air
cleaner covering being too high. The tub appears to have doors
however this car is a climb in version and when those cherry bomb
side pipes are hot it could be a challenge! On the back is a
stainless-steel tank for fuel which sits in a fabricated metal box
just above the massive rear axle. A push bar is on the back and
this rod has '37 Ford taillights. Chrome and black reversed wheels
have baby moons and wide white wall Coker bias ply tires on all 4
The tub is surrounded by padded black vinyl to make access a bit
softer for the landing. White tuck and roll vinyl is on the
interior side panels and bench seat that has a central black large
pad to separate the passengers. A black rally steering wheel is
fronting a black dash with 2 large black face gauges in the center.
Black carpeting is on the floors and a wide rear view mirror with a
clock is on top of the dash.
Within the engine bay is a 3.8 liter V6 topped by a 4-barrel
Edelbrock carburetor. On back power from this mill goes through a
TH350 3-speed automatic and on to a Ford 9-inch rear axle. Black
headers snarl from the sides coming out just below polished valve
coverings and go out either side to a cherry bomb side pipe.
No rust just coral/papaya painted floor pans and rockers. On the
back is a Ford rear with coil over tube shocks. On front is a tube
front axle with a panhead bar with a Vega side steering with drag
links to custom aluminum steering arms. Disc brakes are in front
and drums for the rear.
This car fired right up and ran nicely. It has good handling and
some snappy pickup for a 6 cylinder. The fuel gauge is not working
so you'll have to do a visual on its contents.
A custom throwback to the days of early arm drop lake bed racing. A
nifty color and open suspension and engine add to the look, and the
wide whitewalls with the baby moons complete the package.
