This Dreyer-Ford was not only a successful racer back in the day, but New Jersey driver John Harris successfully vintage-raced it for decades. It comes equipped with extensive period speed equipment, including twin Stromberg 97 carburetors on an Edelbrock intake manifold and Edelbrock alloy heads.

The Jahar Racing Midget is authentic and intact, but it does need cosmetic and mechanical refreshment before heading to the track. Best of all, it’s eligible and competitive in both vintage oval and vintage road racing, on dirt or asphalt.
