While I’ll never be able to say I’ve seen every type of car there is, it takes something pretty unusual to really stump me. So when I saw this ad pop up on my usual search, I was truly surprised. At first I thought it was some variation of a French KV mini car, but according to the all-knowing Wikipedia it’s a kit car that was produced by the Athens, Ohio-based Midget Motors Corporation from 1946 to 1970. The kit apparently came with a suspension, chassis, and steering mechanism, and patterns for the bodywork – it was up to the buyer to cut out the sheetmetal, as well as provide the engine.
This particular example looks like it’s spent some time at the bottom of a swamp, but I suppose considering the bodywork was handmade, it could be in worse shape. I’m not sure what you would do with it
once if you got it roadworthy again, but you’d at least be able to make even the most jaded, experienced gearhead wonder “what is THAT?”
