Default 1940 V8 60 midget for sale on eBay

Here is an interesting little machine...

1940 V8 60 Vintage midget for sale

This car was built by Roy Richter and Pop Faulkner. A professional build and one of the nicer rail frame midgets around. Roy Richter is a well known builder, racer, SoCal businessman and owner of Bell Auto Parts, Bell Helmets and Cragar Wheel Co. The car has been in a collection in Texas for years....I bought the car last year to have some fun with some "old timer" friends (I'm old.....really old..). My reason for selling is I must have a V8 60 car with clutch and starter to do what I want to do. I WILL trade up or down to a like car with clutch starter.

Everything on the car is pro-built. The rails have never been bent or repaired. The body is all hand formed aluminum and in mint condition. Everything fits; no dents or dings....none. Paint is beautiful with a few small chips from storage. All chrome is nice and shiny; grille is professionally handmade (absolutely beautiful) with large opening for V8 60 cooling. Interior is all leather in show perfect condition, professionally done (not a kit). All suspension is chrome, tight and fully functional; drive train is the best of everything --- Franklin steering (chrome & polished); Sower in and out quick change transmission; Casal live axle rear end; original bell steering wheel and fuel pressure pump for starting. Engine is a built V8 60 with dual intake (Stromberg 81's); Edelbrock heads; Eddie Meyer engine plate; dual Wico mag ignition (aircraft style); full length exhaust is custom built 4", all chrome and beautiful. All new Firestone dirt tires on original Halibrand 6 pin quick change knock-off mags. Also complete set of new asphalt slicks (Racemaster) mounted on deep 6 pin mags.
This car has everything to have fun with. It is one of the nicest early V8 60 midgets you will find for sale at this price. Great show off car. It is way too nice to modify for starter and transmission. This car is not a perfect "show car" but it damn sure is showable...and funable...
Car is also for sale locally so I reserve the right to withdraw this ad at any time. $18,500. Once again....I will trade up to like V8 60 car with clutch and starter. For further details or additional pictures, call Tony 707 253-7632.
