Firing Up the Big Car – Flathead Four through Four Inch Open Exhaust

Posted by admin January - 3 - 2012 - Tuesday

As I get closer to the completion of the rebuild of our Depression Era Big Car project, I wanted to post a brief video of this car starting and running with out the engine side panels and hood. It was January 1, 2012 and what better way to celebrate the new year than listening to four big flathead pistons firing through a four inch open exhaust. What a great sound! I plan to offer this vintage race car for sale in just a few days.

The 39 car was quickly sold in February 2012 to a delighted Ford dealership in New York City where it served as a show room attraction.

The 39 car has recently resurfaced in March 2013 in the hands of an avid collector in the state of Illinois.
