The body probably but the chassis? Maybe not
Can't be a "real" race car; there's no "hook" for second gear!
I think it’s pieced together.
Or raced, killed its original chassis then never completed
The chassis is listed as a 36 in the ad
Maintain a collection of 50's and 60's circle cars , usually see lots of cobby welded gussets on steering and suspension on chassis, like Anthony said, body, yup, rest of it looks like someone started on a wanna be, I would have bought it in a heartbeat, great recreation project.
Someone with no racing experience put that together. Real racers would never have had the gas tank that close to the rear, and for sure would no have had the gas fill where that one is.
The pretty bends on the roll cage tubing don't match the rest of the car's appearance.
Probably not real, not that it matters much, could be a great street car though! Get the brush out and put a number on it, make it road worthy, and drive the wheels off of it!
Not mine. It popped up on marketplace.
Located in NY.
Why a car in NY pops up on my feed in Bama? who knows. Maybe the FB folks just know the kinda junk I like.
At 2k and a running flatty, it’s probably sold already
I saw that one too. Good thing it's half way across the country, I don't need any more projects.
Malcom Warner's car (A member of my club Mohawk Valley Vintage Dirt Modifieds) he found it in western NY, but the car ran in the Capital Region (Albany) of NY.
He has no history on the car, there is very faint signs of the number on the door
It looks pretty intact and would make a good nostalgic runner. Was it ever raced? The body looks like it was never hit at all.
Hahaa, that trim ring would be gone on the first lap.
When I see a car like that, I think of the movie “Greased Lightning” and Wendell Scott.
...build it like this for the street...
