Flathead powered belly tank lakester FS
« on: August 20, 2019, 05:29:34 PM »
Built as a display piece, showing all the classic elements of a pre-war belly tank lakester.  Great for museum, showroom or mancave.  Was never finished into a functioning race car, but could be with completion of the drivetrain and safety upgrades.   
 
Features:
Real WW2 surplus drop belly tank body
Split top and bottom and bolted together for access
Nicely finished cutouts for engine and cockpit
Tubular steel perimeter frame
Model A front and rear axles with solid suspension
Ford V8-60
   Aluminum heads
   Aluminum intake manfold
Brass radiator
Aircraft gages
Nice paint, a little worn, but fits the theme
Car is in Oregon, delivery available
$8000

How could it be a "Prewar" belly tank using a WW2 belly tank? I don't think there is any such thing as a "Prewar" tank. Unless you are talking Korean war.

Good point Richfox, not sure why I wrote that.  I suspect it is WW2 era.  Subsonic for sure, but not sure exactly which one.
