You are viewing an authentic example of early drag racing history,
when young men full of "vim and vigor" expressed their mechanical
prowess by modifying early cars to fill the need for speed! This 1923 Ford
Model T was built sometime in the late mid 1950s;
This car was retired and put in a barn out in Oak Harbor,
Washington around 1960. It stayed there until an old
timer, hot-rodder, found it around 1968.
From the barn the car was moved to his
garage near Seattle. He intended to get it running and drive it someday. However
as we all know how things can go, life happened and someday turned into 48
years, one day at a time. The car was still on stands when we first saw it.
Finding a real drag car from the 1950s isn't an everyday happening
so we brought it home. We tried to find out some history on the car, but
unfortunately it seems that everyone that might have been able to shed some
light on it, has passed on to the big drag strip in the sky. (there is on isn't there?)
The engine in the car is a 24 stud, 59-AB Flathead, and it is perfect for the T.R.O.G. We started it briefly and it ran smooth and had good oil pressure.Includes rare N.O.S Eddie Meyer Aluminum Intake Manifold and Aluminum Heads.
It has a 39 Ford gear box, (shifts good) a 40
Ford rear axle and hydraulic brakes, 40 Ford front brakes, Ford tractor gas
tank in the back and nitro tank in the front. It was made long before Dean Moon
began to make them. It still has a hand pump for the nitro tank (via WWII Bomber)
still attached to the dash.
It comes with 4 wire wheels with Wide White Wall tires (really old) and Cool old
wide-whitewall drag slicks. Look at the pictures at all the other ancient hot
rod cool stuff. There are several boxes of parts that include wheel cylinders,
fuel pumps, tow bar, backing plates, and bunch of other stuff.
This car was built back in the day, when you used whatever you could
find (and afford). The old shoe polish numbers from its last race are still
Those decals you see are authentic and are from the beginning of drag racing and performance history. Those headlight stanchions were made by Edmunds
eons ago and are easy to remove for the T.R.O.G!
