Default Early postwar 1940-1950 Midget On ebay

Check this out.....




Description:
Just pulled out of a Southern California backyard where it's been stored for decades. Early postwar timeframe Midget in pieces. Great basket case project, unknown history (should be fun to track down though...). Lots of interesting racing pieces, not a cobbled up car-parts junker. Body is aluminum with nicely shaped cowl, rear body may have been a flatback (really early, maybe prewar) then converted to humpback. excellent construction for 60+ years ago. Front is steel with nice shaped grill assembly. Car was powered by a V8-60 and several pieces for mounting are included (motor plates, oil pans etc.). Have a close look at the pictures to see what is included. I do not know the manufacturer of the midget quick change rear, can anybody help on that one? Wheels are 12" Halibrand magnesium, look nasty but may clean up, I haven't tried.

Bob I made your title a bit more descriptive and I added the eBay widget so we could see the car without clicking the link, I hope you don't mind.

No problem, if you ever want to post stuff like that, go for it! I can "spruce" it up afterward. Just give it a descriptive thread title so we don't have a dozen "for sale on eBay" threads.

Thanks Bob!!
