Custom work by Ralph - Heave & Hurl

 I think the builder was uncomfortable of Henry Fords comment " Why would anyone want something other than the Model T"? I guess we can be thankful that the builder of the car had other thoughts,like,

 

 

The Citroën Twelve, also known as the Citroën Traction Avant, debuted in 1934..

The Twelve would go on to become the world’s first mass-produced front-wheel drive car

 I guess that that guy was crazy too ?

Wonder if the designer studied the L29 CORD back in 1929? Did he pay royalties on the Harry Miller patent as well? Bob

I don't think Andre Citroen went overseas to study Cord; in his neighborhood Tracta had made fwd cars since 1927.
