Ford Model t speedster race car {ReBUILDING HISTORY the series}

From stock the modifications to this car start with the engine, where it has been fitted with a Ricardo aftermarket head, Bosch front plate distributor, counter balanced crank, aluminum pistons, and fitted with a period correct updraft carb, all together it pumps out around a whopping 30-40 hp. The modifications to the frame include -Lowering the car about 5 inches without dropping the front axle. -Setting the engine and driver, back around 6 inches. This is done to change the look of the car as well as help with weight distribution. -Also notice the period correct friction shocks on all four corners As for the gearing ,the rear axle has been swapped out for an original Hall-Scott two speed axle that has been stuffed with 3 to 1 gears . -Other than that I'm still running the original two speed transmission. Setup as a race car it is not uncommon for model T's to hit speeds upwards of 65.

1928 Ford Model A Race Car
My friend's project race rat rod. It's a Ford Model A with an original engine, rebuilt by Dave. She still has a ways to go, but this nearly 85 year old car still goes down the road under its own power! So, this car would typically get around 30 miles per gallon. What the hell has Ford been doing for the last 80 years?
