Description for Other Makes 1934

1934 Schafer Indy Racer open wheel STREET LEGAL roadster. Painstakingly built up from the remains of a 1930's Schafer body (nine pieces) and using the original chassis as a pattern this is a recreation of the cut down chassis that wasundoubtedlyused as a circut racer after it's Indy Days were over.
The car was built up for "The Great Race " but by the time it was finished the old timer thought better of the 5K entry fee and the nine day commitment.
Theboat tailedracer uses a straight 6 inline 292 GMC truck engine with tons of torque mated to a Turbo 3 speed automatic for a very pleasant drivingexperience.Fitted with custom Biltstein shocks for a real sports car ride.High speed Coker Radial Tires further enhance the drivingexperience
Registered and titled in Massachusetts as a 1934 Schafer Roadster it is exempt from needing fenders ( pre 1938 ). It should be legal anywhere however I do have a set of four cycle fenders that cameoriginallywith the car.
Fitted with a heavy duty radiator this car runs cool and will sit in traffic or a parade with NO overheating worries.This is the only car in the storage facility that starts without a jump at the beginning of the new season.Obviouslyit is always garaged as it has no top and is stored in a heated facility.
The car hashydraulicdiscs up front disguised as drum brakes and drums in the rear to haul it down from speed. Although they are not power brakes so they require a firm pressure on the brake pedal.....
At the car shows it alwaysattractsattention and has won several awards at the Larz Anderson Auto Museum in Boston. It was also featured in theprestigious'Boston Cup" invitation only car show last October.The Coker Radials have less than 200 miles on them. 17 inch wire wheels and Brooklands style windscreens.
This car would be perfect for two lane fast country roads, sadly it lives in Downtown Boston !!
In short this is a great car to show and drive anywhere the weather permits, super reliable just routinemaintenanceand polishing. This is not a fussy car to own and enjoy. Call with any questions. Best regards, Paul 617 834-9354
