Endurance racer is built around a 100-year-old frame.
When you think of building a car for the 24 Hours of LeMons – the 24 hour endurance race where the original price of the car has to be $500 or less – you wouldn’t necessarily think of using a 100-year-old frame. But that’s what Dennis ‘Fish” Newman and Dave Schaible did with their Road-Race T 1927 LeMons racer. To that century-old frame they attached the 5.0-liter engine taken from an old Ford Mustang and the front end of a Pinto.
Drive’s Mike Musto had the pleasure of taking it for a ride and as you’ll see from the video, this is one superbly put together and awesome sounding hot rod.
