This fendered open wheel creation was at the open house hosted by Close Enough, Probably Ok alongside our last Street Parked subject.
Starting with a classic sprint car body, this car has been given an extra feature to increase its usability.
To give this single seat racer the ability to pull kid drop off duty, a motorcycle sidecar has been donated by a wayward Harley Davidson.
The wheels on this machine have a decidedly not circle track look to them. Closer inspection reveals that this car is motivated by an Alfa Romeo drivetrain. A 1958 750 Veloce was liberated of its engine and transmission for this project. Triumph and Honda parts were also used, but the Alfa pieces seem to add the most flare to this car.
The Alfa’s gauges were used on this car’s hand made dash. The classic looking machine turned dash was made using a drill with a scotchbrite pad attached. A steady hand and a straight grid pattern give a dash similar to those used on classics like Allards.
From the genuine faux authenticity of the look of the nose of this car, it is not surprising that some passers by think this car was created in Italy and not on the shores of Lake Union.
This car is begging to be your commuter and is certain to be Probably Ok.
