They were the original home-built race cars and their garage builders made use of every available automotive and sometimes non-automotive part they could use. Some cars were even powered by outboard boat motors. Post-World War II, the Quarter midgets appeared much as their full-scale counterparts did, as home-builts. Since that time, the Quarter midgets have evolved into modern race cars parallel to the full-size Midgets. They use a scratch-built single seat chassis with a 1 or 2 cylinder mid-engine, rear drive layout and all-encompassing roll carge.

It takes a Continental engine which is available on Ebay or through the quarter midget dealer in Bakersfield, who also carries the nerf bars and miscellaneous parts. Belly pan needs repair or you can purchase a reproduction on also. I have run out of energy completely
