1957 Wolberg "McNamara Special" Quarter Midget
To be auctioned on Friday, January 18, 2013
Sold for $14,300
- Engine no. AA7B532
It was purchased by the current owner in 2009, and a thorough cosmetic and light mechanical refurbishment was immediately commissioned. The internals of the engine were renewed, including a polishing of the crank and the installation of new valves, seats, new rings, and pistons. Only minor sorting of the ignition, which is set up to run on using automotive points and a condenser, and carburetion will be required to get the engine running and broken in.
The body was also stripped and repainted in the “McNamara Special” #73 livery after the Kurtis Kraft, which was built by Frank Kurtis and Lee Elkins for the Indianapolis 500. The tires are brand new and unworn, completing an overall, beautiful presentation for this Continental-powered quarter midget racer.
Please note that as a race car, this lot is sold on a Bill of Sale.
