cool things with wheels since 2006
Oh my, what a wonderful mysterious speedster. I have no idea from what stable he came from, it do have some US manufacturer vibe for me at least, but which one?
Here's a bit on them...http://theoldmotor.com/?p=170980
Thanks for the tip. David Mount is the Ashville SC contractor who has uncovered these cars he posted on the The Old Motor today: "The speedster is on the lift now! We are going over it very carefully to see if we can find anything that may lead us to the history of the car. We are going to rebuild the speedster first then start on the Plymouth. Fun fact on the Plymouth is it has a flat head Ford V8 running gear in it. Very neat job looks like it was done from the factory ( I know it wasn’t ) it is pretty much all there except for the front seat and the rumble seat. We are avid people on saving anything that can be saved. I’ve not scraped anything that we have found yet. To answer one question on here the new property owner is not a car guy and didn’t really care what we did with them. But he has seen the cars and he did tell me and my daughter that he wanted her to have the Plymouth and restore it and bring it by so he could take a ride in it. Thanks for all the interest in this cars and will keep updating as we go!"
I found these photos on the facebook page of David Mount... via teh facebook page "1920s Antique Automobiles, Brass Era Cars, Orphan Makes"
That's great news! Jesse, put that on your radar and if you will get any info about that wonderful speedster give a shout.
Click on the links, people have been discussing that speedster body. I'm not going to dig through it all to identify... that's your homework maybe, but not mine. I've got other things to work on posting. I just find the stuff. The rest is up to whoever is most interested in it.
