Old midget race car photos
Midgets have been around for many decades in many different forms. One of the more well known versions of these factory produced race cars was the classic Kurtis Kraft model. The KK, as it was called, was produced in California and usually carried the potent Offenhouser engine. During its career, numerous accidents, as were typical of the day, led to replacement of the nose, front axle, steering, hood, and suspension. Beyond repairing damaged parts, subsequent owners of the car also performed their own modifications, including swapping the original Offy to a Ford V powerplant. Interestingly, thanks to the design of the car, a motor swap could be performed in a matter of minutes.
