1947 Kurtis Style Midget Racer from Richard Rawlings personal collection offered by Gas Monkey Garage.
• 136 CID Ford Flathead V8 with Aluminum Edelbrock Cylinder Heads are fed by a Hilborn fuel injection system.

• True knock off wheels.
• RJS seat harness.
• Restored and raced for 6 six years in the Western Vintage Race Car circuit.

This midget racer was constructed by Picks in Santa Anna, California to replicate an original Kurtis racer. The car ran with Western Racing for 6 years.
The direct drive setup was typical of midget racers. It is simply a mechanical coupler between the engine and rear axle. This drive train has no clutch and allows the car to be push-started when the gear is engaged. This allows the elimination of weight normally required for clutch, flywheel, starter motor and battery. This push start process works well because midget races are typically short with no need for pit stops.
This Kurtis Style midget racer is equipped with a modified 136 CI 17-bolt flathead V8-60 that Ford produced from 1937 to 1940. Aluminum Edelbrock Cylinder Heads are fed by a Hilborn fuel injection system. A direct drive box transfers the power from the engine to the pavement. This example features knock off wheels and an RJS seat harness.
This car was restored to actively participate in vintage racing events and was raced for 6 six years in the Western Vintage Race Car circuit. Rich Mastroleo, whose name is painted on this car is a Board Member of the Western Racing Association and is believed to have raced this car during many of those years in various midget races.
A vintage Midget Racer is a must have for any serious Automotive Aficionado and this 1947 Kurtis Style Racer is an excellent opportunity to acquire one for your collection today.
