This midget race car with Packard heritage is surprisingly intact. The first two pictures show the car as raced in the Los Angeles area in the 20’s. We are unsure at this point of the original engine but the chassis space, engine mounts and exhaust pipes indicate an inline 4 similar, if not equal to the 1918 Henderson 4 that is supplied with the chassis. The engine is seen in the back of the pictures. It has been rebuilt and has about 3500 break-in miles on it from the 2016 Cannonball!

The seller has run out of time and needs to get some projects out of his shed and into the hands of other preservationists.

The owner is a restorer of motorcycles. All mechanical items needed to make this a runner appears to be included in the sale.
