Welp, it finally happened: Dave Tanimura has put the super-bitchin’ Morris Bros./SO-CAL Speedshop roadster up for sale. Now, make no mistake –– this is one of the few chances you’ll ever get to own a car with so much deep California race history. This thing ran just about every type of 4-wheel racing available over its 50-some year career. And though it ran a bunch of different motor/tranny combos, paint schemes and trim, Dave restored it to its late Forties/early Fifties look. With some amazing original equipment and a new, period-correct flathead, the guy did an amazing job.
We’ve ridden in it, stood next to it when Dick Morris (half of the two-brother team that built the car, originally) finally laid his eyes on it after a thousand years, drank beers sitting on the rear tire in Dave’s garage and have just generally loved this car for years. Like all the old ebay screws say, “Bid with confidence.”
Bookmark the auction (here) and bid the hell out of this thing. You’re not gonna find another one like it on the planet. And that’s a fact.
