Help with identification

21 July 2014 - 09:28 AM

I just got this midget that was a barn find that I have been watching for 10 years. The owner believed it to be a kurtis kraft (wishful thinking I believe) and now I am in the process of getting it running before I go any further.

 

I found the following on the RR frame :

227-T14

20-234 A

No 2 of 2

 

The motor is a 4 cylinder Ensign ?  he believed, with down draft su carbs. Very similar to an old triumph motor. It is electric start with a transmisson.

Unique feature that may help with identification is that the throttle pedal is to the inside of the brake pedal against the center shroud/driveshaft cover, clutch pedal to the left.

It has independent rear suspension with a full cross over spring

the front is also the transverse spring across.

 

The car was purchased from the Florida area, and was a light/baby blue when purcahsed. 

It does have a bolt on Roll bar, single rear hoop
