Thanks for the link - That is cool! Anybody know what something like that is worth?

Notice it say the ignition is a mag, meaning no onboard starter, you push it to start it.

Beautiful car. I remember the "4/4" midgets racing, with their 91 c.i. Offys but never saw 3/4 midgets running. There were a couple of these for sale locally a few years ago but not in this condition.

I like Crosley engines. They were big in H-modified (750cc) during the fifties and used in outboard motors (Bearcat?) and other applications. Early versions had blocks made of braised sheet metal.

I raced karts on dirt ovals & that was fun. I imagine one of these on dirt would be twice as good. Wish I was younger and richer.
