No Racing In The House!

'55 Quater Midget

This little racer does look good parked in this climate controlled setting doesn’t it? With the tags hanging on the merchandise this might be an”antique” shop? This Quarter Scale Racer is said to be circa 1955. The racer is sitting in Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania and is listed here on eBay with a BIN of $5.5K.

This is a restored Quarter Midget Racer with also comes with a stand. Now whether you take this rig to the track or drain the fluids and place #5 in your living room is up to you and/or someone else in your family…?

The air-brush work on the hood does look good! There is not an image or details concerning the rebuilt engine. If you have any questions please contact the seller on eBay. What do you think the weight limit and leg room is in this racer?

    Considering your statement “weather you take this rig to the track or” I can only add that if you do go racing, perhaps you will become the “raining champ!”

    Oh, don’t you love spell-check!
