This midget racer was reportedly built by Roy Richter and Pop Faulkner and is an aluminum-bodied example powered by a ci Ford V flathead. Hand-formed aluminum bodywork incorporates a large oval grille, and the livery pays tribute to Soda Canyon Racing from Soda Canyon, California. The paintwork shows some touched-up chips and marks. The fitted set of vintage Halibrand 6-pin knock-off mags are fitted with a new set of Firestone dirt tires. The interior is upholstered in black leather, which the seller reports is custom.

While many series have adopted rules that tightly define virtually every component and dimension in a racing engine, the USAC National Midget Series offers engine designers the freedom to innovate. The innovative design of the new Chevy Midget racing engine is the product of imaginative thinking and advanced technology. The USAC Midget rulebook embraces a wide range of engines that includes four- and six-cylinder powerplants, two-valve and four-valve cylinder heads, and overhead-valve, single overhead cam, and dual overhead cam valvetrain designs. However, the Chevy Midget racing engine puts a new twist on a familiar theme. The opportunity to design an all-new Chevy Midget racing engine was an invitation for some of our best and brightest engineers to create an engine within the USAC guidelines that would be competitive in both performance and cost with existing engines.
