1915 Hispano Suiza Hot Rod

IMG_9797-1

The formula for a 140+ mph hot rod is simple… find a high-torque 18.5 liter Hispano Suiza airplane engine from 1915, attach a 1919 Delage bus gearbox before mounting it into a lightweight 1915 Hispano Suiza chassis that’s fitted with an Albion garbage truck rear-end, then stopped by mechanical chain drum brakes.

Another favorite from Jay’s collection that I was fortunate to photograph recently.
