The Motorcar Offered  
Few profiles are as compelling as that of a period salt flat racer fashioned from war surplus aluminium. Built on the bones of a stock 1929 Ford Model A, The Bomb features a body from a spare aircraft wing tank, granting the entire package an authenticity that cannot be replicated at any price. The windscreen was adapted from an old airplane canopy and the seats are from a period bomber. Despite installing only period correct performance modifications, the racer was clocked at 63 mph, an important feat for a street legal and road registered racecar! A multiple award recipient at various events and driven by Mario Andretti, this is a crowd pleaser that is sure to garner intense interest as it crosses the block.  
Estimate:  $17,000-19,000
