Description: Kurtis Midget Racer Edlebrock V
Long before he became famous for designing and building Indianapolis racers that won the 500-mile race five times, Los Angeles producer Frank Kurtis made a considerable reputation building the best midget race cars in the world. Beginning in the late 1930s, his company, Kurtis Kraft, churned out over 1,150 midgets, 500 in ready-to-race form and 600 kits. Described by the National Midget Auto Racing Hall of Fame as "virtually unbeatable for over twenty years," the Kurtis midget racer won countless events all over the country for decades and still shines at vintage events today. The 1949 Kurtis Kraft midget racer offered here is a perfect example of the Kurtis magic. The eye-pleasing result of an excellent professional restoration, this premium quality racer, powered by a 60hp flathead V-8 backed by the traditional in-and-out gearbox, is both eligible and ready for vintage competition. With its brilliant Red paint, gleaming chrome, polished aluminum and gold-leaf numerals, it is also a stunning show piece and a nostalgic reminder of Kurtis’ talents.
