Exclamation eBay find: 1947 Kurtis Midget for sale

Check this out....




The description states...

Most of you looking at this were guided here by sale flyers posted at Zephyrhills, and already know the machine. Dad was well known and liked.... a real friend to many. This car was his last hobby, and he went all-out.... and most of the time he won the races he entered... until the cancer began taking its toll.

For those of you that didn't get to know Bob and his machine(s)... just know that while this may not have been the "prettiest" of all Midget Racers (though, it certainly is nice), it would more than hold its own in his class.

I decided not to try to 'polish it up', as Dad would not want me to try and misrepresent it for something it's not. Dad was one of the most honest men you ever would know, and was a man of his word.

The car is race-ready... Dad had every intention of attending the Feb. 2010 DAARA meet in Zephyrhills, Florida. After the 2009 meet, he made some repairs, and got it fully prepared for the 2010 meet... this is how it sits today. It was always kept indoors in a climate controlled "clean" environment.
