Here's the link....
Neat old TQ Midget for sale

Description:
UP FOR AUCTION IS A HILLEGASS MIDGET RACE CAR THAT WAS CUSTOM BUILT BY JIM SOWERS BACK IN 1959 --- THE ENTIRE CAR IS CROSLEY USING THE ORIGINAL CROSLEY FRAME THAT WAS CUT DOWN, ENGINE, TRANS, REAR STEERING & RADIATOR.
THE NOSE AND TAIL OF THE CAR WERE PURCHASED FROM HILLEGASS IN ALLENTOWN, PA WHEN THE CAR WAS BUILT--- THE NOSE AND TAIL ARE ACTUALLY FULL SIZE MIDGET SIZE AND NOT BUT THAT IS WHAT JIM WANTED---JIM ALSO BUILT THE REST OF THE BODY HIMSELF ALL OF ALUMINUM – THE CAR IS ALL WITHIN MIDGET SIZE LIMITS FOR WHEEL BASE AND WIDTH.

BACK IN THE DAY HILLEGASS MADE KITS OR COMPLETE CARS TO ORDER AND YOU COULD BUY WHATEVER PARTS YOU WANTED FROM HIM -- AS STATED THE NOSE AND TAIL WERE PURCHASED IN AS THEY WERE HAND HAMMERED ON THE ORIGINAL HILLEGASS DIES INTO A RIGHT AND LEFT HAND SIDE FOR THE TAIL AND NOSE AND THAN WELDED TOGETHER.

THIS IS A SHARP-LOOKING CAR WTIH PLENTY OF CHROME AND AN OFFY STYLE HEADER WHICH MAKES IT SOUND LIKE A REAL BABY OFFY. THIS CAR IS COMPLETE AND RUNS GREAT. WE HAD THE CAR OUT BACK LAST WEEK AND IT GRABBED PLENTY OF ATTENTION FROM ANYONE WHO HEARD AND SAW IT RUNNING. THERE ARE SOME NICKS AND SCRATCHES IN THE PAINT.

THE CAR RUNS GREAT AND IS A LOT OF FUN TO DRIVE. IF YOU WANT TO INSPECT THE CAR, PLEASE CONTACT ME AND YOU ARE WELCOME TO STOP BY AND CHECK IT OUT AND HEAR IT RUN.

THE CAR WAS ON DISPLAY AT THE AMERICA ON WHEELS MUSEUM IN ALLENTOWN, PA.
