There is a great car for sale on Ebay for anyone who enjoys the rich history of the Vanderbilt Cup Series.Ã‚Â Here is what it says about the car.
1904 Thomas Model 27 Racer
This is straight line 6 cylinder 12.3 liter 750 cubic inch 60 h.p. engine was engineered and built for the 1904 Vanderbilt Cup Race. A production version of this engine became available with a racing body at the Thomas dealership. New recast engine block. Ground up restoration in 2007.
From what I can see in the photos, the detail is excellent. Check out the close-up ofÃ‚Â the cotter pins in every single section of chain link. Considering in was built back in 1904 the seats are way ahead of their time due to the fact they had such good side support. Having over 750 cubic inches and yet only producing an amazingÃ‚Â whopping 60 horsepower just goes to show how far technology has brought us in this day and age. And just think,Ã‚Â as of right now it can be yoursÃ‚Â for less than $500,000.00.
