For sale Unique 1927 RAJO engine T Roadster

A friend has put up his 1927 Roadster for sale. The car is a good amature restoration, no rust and a good paint job. The unique item is the motor. As you can see on the details below it really is special. It is believed to be the last motor built by Fred Hoss and was built to unusually high standards. After installation is the car, there were some issues with the four bolts connecting the crank and the transmission. These were resolve by an very experienced machinist, using all grade 8 bolts.
The car will see off 99% of all Ts on the road but is traceable enough to comfortable run behind my 24 Coupe on a tour. Quite a car
