Description for Ford Model A 1927

1927-37 Ford circle track car specs, 1942 registered car #78

Titled as 1927 Ford

This 1937 Ford circle track racer started life in New Hampshire where it was constructed in 1937. It was campaigned locally in New Hampshire until 1942 when it passed to Ferris Rand of San Diego, California, a well-known local racer and enthusiast. At this time it was registered and was known as car No. 78, per the original dash plaque still installed on the car to this day. Here it was campaigned throughout California, well into the late 1940s as we are told. From that point on however, it sat dormant, yet complete in dry California storage for many years. Ultimately this is the parts list of a period correct circle track racer of the 1930s; the "real deal," and a rare opportunity to acquire an example with known history and very real.
