Granddad's speedster

Recommended Posts

Just found this tucked in with some old family photos. I know my grandfather had speedsters and race cars, not sure about this photo at all. When my dad was a teenager, he built  race cars for my grandfather. There is one more photo somewhere of grandpa in another speedster.

There you go!  Our grandparents were rock stars in their day.

 

Thanks for another great photo for us.

The lack of frame horns (those are friction shocks extending beyond the front axle) seems to indicate a 490 Chevrolet

Yes, quarter elliptic springs front and rear confirm it.
