Volkswagen Inside: 1927 Track T Roadster

Whenever I see a Shelby Cobra driving on the street, I instantly assume it is a kit car…not that there is anything wrong with that, just that I’m probably dismissing the few real Cobras that might not be sitting in museums or climate controlled garages.  In a similar fashion, I also smile when I see a cool hot-rodded Ford Model T, mostly oblivious to the fact that you can buy a 1927 Track-T Roadster starter kit for $3,500…and in all likelihood, most Model Ts you see are indeed kit cars.  Like this 1927 Track T Roadster offered for $15,000 in Denver, CO. Tip from Rock On!

Most of the Model T style hot rods you see cruising around use a small block Chevy mounted to a TH350 transmission and a combination of Mustang II/Pinto front & rear ends, but this one looks to use mid-mounted Volkswagen engine for setup.   The seller doesn’t show a good rear view of the car, but it could end up being a great combination of light weight and fun handling.  Think Porsche 914 with Model T style.
