Here is an interesting classic for sale:
A 1929 Chrysler Model 75 Competition Roadster.
The roadster is prepped for long distance travel, having finished 2nd in the 15,000 mile, 55 day, Inca Trail Rally in 2001. The ’29 Chrysler has also competed in the 2003 Shield of Africa Rally and the Peking to Paris Event in 2007.
The power plant is a full pressure lubrication straight six, and it has a fully synchronized 4-speed transmission.
The car is for sale out of Lake Elmo, MN for $28,400.
How many cars out there can you buy that has crossed the Gobi Desert, Mongolia and Russia, traveling over 7000 miles in 35 days?
Says the current owner: “This car is the ‘real deal’, and has been driven hard in South America, Africa, Asia, and Europe. It needs a new owner who is adventurous enough to continue this legacy.”
Hopefully, the new owner will sign it up for the 2015 Trans-American Challenge.
A special thanks to Bring-a-Trailer for the car info and photos.
