    Family legacy. Track roadster version had Kinmont brakes.

    A well detailed little hot rod!
    I'm 5'9" and my un-channeled T with only a 1" recessed firewall, is already a tight fit. I cant imagine trying to drive

    The Rod & Custom article came immediately to mind. Altzheimer's hasn't hit yet.

    Perhaps racing midgets gives us a clue?
    A stock A is tight enough for me!

    What a great story & a beautiful car!

    Such a rad hot rod. Does it still live in Kansas City? I don’t recall seeing it but there’s so many good ones in every nook and cranny it wouldn’t surprise me.

    thanks For the history lesson !

    What a great story. I knew it was special when I saw pics of it at the Roundup from a few weeks ago. It was so nice I thought someone totally obsessed with period correctness had recently built it. Now I know the rest of the story. Thanks.

    Man, that car is awesome! I couldn't stop looking at it at LSRU. It caught my eye every time.

    This is what a T roadster is supposed to look like, chrome, polish, paint, roll 'n pleats and the tires hanging out on both ends, WoW!

    I’m not always drawn to a T, but this thing is magnetic.
