I'm not sure about the provenance of this speeder, but it is surplus to our needs and is becoming an eye sore and attractive nuisance, so it's time for it to go.

It Is missing it's reversing transmission (blown up), but is otherwise serviceable condition (last run about five years ago). It has a Ford flathead V8, and a four speed transmission.

We can load it onto your flatbed free of charge, Monday through Friday 7:30 to 12:00, and 12:30 until 2:00.

I have no idea. I'll guess at 3,000 lb.

Kelly,

Dean Mark at Fredricksburg Shops would love to have it but said he'll have to take a pass on it. BTW, considering that it's likely an A8 car, you might be looking at 4,000+ lbs. That's a hefty little bugger.

Kelly,

I will take the car if it is still available. I work for the Canton Railroad in Baltimore and I would like to restore it for use on our railroad and other places/events. Please let me know if it is still available. Thanks, Tyler Horner, Railroad Coordinator, Canton Railroad, Baltimore, Maryland. If you want to contact me, the office number is 410-633-9190.

The speeder has been removed from the property, early bird and all that. Thanks everyone for your interest.
