I had the lucky break of picking up an Ardun race Engine of the Legendary Doug King. I am not sure exactly what I am going to do with it yet, but the last time I bought something I didn’t know what to do with it (1957 Alfa Monoposto Veloce), I learned how to road race. So who knows maybye I will be blasting down the salt or dry lake bed soon.
I might swap out this ardun witht he ardun in my paul Sylva Race car. and then take that engine and put it in one of my hotrods….. hmmm but I think I need me a scot blower
The real deal Ardun not a reproduction. Here it is Kids Ardun Flathead the holy Grail of hot rodding Just as a point of reference most arduns I come across go for around $50,000 so add in a real 32 roadster and your prolly in the 75K range given the shape of this one. A perfect Ardun Roadster sold at auction this summer for over $160,000 so this car is pretty interesting.
I,ve owned this car for 30 years.
Original frame with 1948 Flathead engine fitted with original Ardun heads(numbers 242 and 243).
These are the earlier heads with the front water outlets,unlike the reproductions available.
Engine is fitted with 4 Strombergs,Vertex mag,Potvin cam,Headers etc,etc
