Now for sale in our Houston Showroom is this beautifully restored 1947 Kurtis-Kraft Midget #18. This car represents a good example of vintage post-war race car and would look great at any show.
Powering this piece of history is a Offenhauser 110 CID DOHC 4-cylinder motor. This engine features Hilborn fuel injection which is said to be the first fuel injection system created and was desired by many racers of the era. Paired up with the engine is a 2-speed manual “in and out” transmission with your choice of either neutral or GO! The quick-change rear end made this car capable of interchangeable gearing for different racing needs to improve the odds of a win. To provide the stopping power of this beautiful beast is 4-wheel disk-brakes that sit behind 12” aluminum wheels with knock-offs. A complete tubed steel chassis and aluminum dash aided in the car being light weight improving its overall performance. The tires are Firestone 150-12 in the front and M&H Racemaster 150-12 and are in good condition.
For what little interior the car has, it is in very good condition. The car features a black leather racing seat, with the convenience of the drive shaft running through your legs. The aluminum dash has machine turned and shows very well. It’s amazing to see what race cars of that era were like and to compare them with todays monstrous machines. This car would make for a great show piece in anyone’s home or museum, possibly even be taken to your local track permitting it meets the requirements.
