    The very famous and well documented " Spade Carrillo" 1927 T Roadster is For Sale. Built in late 1950, to be ran at the Bonneville Salts Flats in 1951, this mid-engine roadster was clocked at a one-way speed of 178.162 mph. Soon after, it was the Hot Rod magazine cover car in July, 1952 and the rest is Hot-Rod History. Many articles have been written about the extraordinary car over the years, but the link below, to the Hot Rod magazine article by Thom Taylor is one of the best. Take a look.

    In recent years, the car was restored by the current owner, Frank Morawski of Bel Air, Md. and many of his friends. The Carrillo Roadster was one of only nine cars selected for the "Land Speed" group at the Peeble Beach Concours d'Elegance in 2010. It was selected again by Hot Rod magazine for the cover car display at the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance, Cover Car for the # 50 issue of Rodders Journal magazine with 16 pages of coverage, AACA Junior and Senior awards at the Hershey AACA Fall meet and most recently in January, 2014 it was selected for the 65th Hot Rod magazine display in the "Century of Speed" show at the Grand National Roadster Show. The car is currently on display at the The Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum in Pomona, Ca.

    Please do your own research of the history of this car. The owner has reluctantly decided to put the car up for sale, so that someone else can continue the history and heritage of this remarkable car.
