Jay Leno Checks Out Amazing All-Original 100YO Race Car [Video]
Take this 1911 Franklin Model D race car that Jay spotted at Pebble Beach. The car is in completely original condition, meaning nothing has been restored. Despite having wood frame, wood wheels and solid tires, it could race across the desert at 85 mph.
The engine a straight-six which looks like its made from motorcycle components because it’s air-cooler with the exhaust valves at the bottom and at the top. The cooling fan is behind the engine instead of in front of it.
