Cohort Pic(k) of the Day: “Indy Car Project” – Would Have Been Perfect For My Nevada Trip

William Ryan found something rather remarkable here. Wow! This would have been perfect for my Nevada Overlanding trip. Just need to wear one of those white disposable coveralls and some goggles and leather helmet.

He titled it “Indy Car Project”. I’m not sure what that’s supposed to mean, as it sure doesn’t look like it’s ready for the 500. “Indy” as independent-minded? Works for me. And it’s got an inline six and rides on a Toyota truck chassis.

I can’t quite make out the badge on that great old radiator. The six has dual carbs and a split exhaust header. Looks kinda’ like a Ford Big Six, but I could be wrong.

The luggage is all packed, and I’m ready to roll.

Is that blue thing an old steel cooler? And a water can behind it? The gas tank is plenty big.

I’ve always had a thing for old Ford speedsters, but this all kinds of wonderful. A truck speedster, ready to take on anything with those tires.  I love it.
