MUST HEAR engine sound Pre War Nitro burning flathead 1932 AV8 Ford hot rod race car
This roadster was originally built in 1937 by Sandy Belond and Sam Hanks to race on the SoCal dry lakes. My friends always kid me saying it isn't authentic until you run like he did on nitro; Cheers guys, 58% Methanol 20% Nitro 20% Gas 2% castro oil. This fuel made it possible for Belond to run 125.854 mph in 1942 at a REVS meet held at Muroc; argueably the fastest speed ever by a pre-war hot rod roadster.
