Description: 86 pages, 34 illustrations, size 8.25 x 11 inches. Originally published in 1949 by Floyd Clymer, this edition was republished in 2010 by VelocePress. This comprehensive and informative book, written in easy to understand language, puts the capability of designing and building a 1950’s era midget racing car or a three-quarter (dirt track) car within reach of the home-based enthusiast. The fundamental principles described in this book may also be applied to the construction of a 50’s track roadster or even a custom built hot rod. Highly technical terminology and engineering terms have been avoided, as the aim of this book is to define the construction process in clear and understandable terms, regardless of the reader’s technical background or training. The principles it contains are just as relevant today as they were some 50 years ago when this book was first written. The design process is clearly explained, the raw materials required are described, and the construction process is presented in an easy-to-follow step by step procedure. Obviously, this book would also be a valuable reference for anyone contemplating repairing, refurbishing or restoring a vintage racing car. This edition also includes a 38 page bonus section featuring a reproduction of an appropriate Offenhauser Speed Equipment catalog.

Out-of-print and unavailable for many years, this book is becoming increasingly more difficult to find on the secondary market and we are pleased to be able to offer this reproduction as a service to all those vintage automotive race car builders and enthusiasts worldwide. ...$24.95 USD
