Description:

1923 Replica/Kit Makes Roadster Roadster

Roadster based on 1923 Model T body. Registered 2005. Clean title with current California registration through January 2019. SB100 Special Construction ("SPCNS"), so NO SMOG TEST REQUIRED- EXEMPT FOREVER IN CALIFORNIA!Absolute blast to drive.

Fully custom spaceframe, including well-braced rollover cage. Fiberglass 1923 T-bucket body, which was “sliced” to fit around the frame to maximize frame integrity. Spring loaded pins allow rapid removal of sides and dash for unparalleled access for maintenance, repair etc. Aluminum Kirkey Racing seats could easily be replaced with traditional bench seat if preferred.

Chevy 350 crate motor with Holley 4-barrel, Holley Street Dominator manifold, hotter (torquer) cam and HEI. I do not know the actual HP or torque numbers, but in a car so light, it’s plenty….! GM 4-spd overdrive automatic transmission. All U.S Ford running gear: Rear wheel drive, independent rear suspension, disc brakes all around,limited slip differential. Rack and Pinion steering; coilovers and custom a-arms all four corners. Spare set of 4 rims included if wanted.

Extra thick multi-core radiator. Power brakes. Safety-cell fuel tank. Twin, selectable Holley fuel pumps. Removable slide-in rack for extra carrying capacity. Even interior lights!

Always garaged with dustcover. No accidents, and very low mileage- probably under 1,500 miles.

Clean and correct title. First registered in 2005, as Special Construction (SPCNS), and that's what's on the pink slip. It has the matching CHP VIN tag riveted on the frame. For California smog purposes, per SB100, it’s considered a 1960, so is exempt from testing. (Google SB100 if you’re in California and not familiar with this.) It has the BAR sticker showing it as exempt on the frame. It was done right, with all the required inspections, not like some that skirt around the regulations by pretending to be a 1923 car.

Original owner/builder- one of a dozen or so cars I built for the fun of assembly, but never drove much. Probably under 100 miles/year nowadays, along with starting them every few weeks just to keep fluids moving. I drove it a few miles last weekend without issue, but no warranty is offered, and I'd recommend giving it a good going-over and changing fluids etc. as it’s been so little used in the last few years. Tire tread looks brand new, but they're old enough to warrant replacing. The first seven photos were taken during construction, but the last nine on the deck in my back yard were taken today (6/2/18) after I gave it a half-hearted wash and show current condition (not much difference!).
Would cost a lot more than the starting price to build, of course. But now they’re just taking up valuable garage space now, so they need to go. If you want more photos of any area of it, just ask. I can also take a video of the car driving up and down the street, and the engine running if you want.

Buyer to arrange shipping, or pickup from CA 94518. I can assist loading onto buyer-arranged professional transportation if buyer isn't present.

By bidding, Buyer agrees to take full responsibility for its use, and absolves seller of any liability. Although this has been trouble-free for me, no warranty is offered, and as it is not a production car, you should get a professional safety inspection before use.
