1929 Ford Speedster – Ford racing built, restored in perfection for concourse display, historic racing and capital gain
This stunning Ford Speedster has been build by Ford Racing. Technical specifications, Ford invoices, original 1929 car registration, race certificates and pictures for the years 1929 to 1932 come with the car.
This car is a perfect combination of both worlds:
- restored to participate and win concourse display, and
- powerful enough for participation in vintage races.
The car has won many concourse trophies.
The capital gain over recent years was in average 10% to 15% per year
The Speedster guarantees an incredible driving experience, directly connected to the road, with smell, noise, wind, and an unbelievable feeling of pre-war racing. Attention at any historic car show and race included. Driving in congested city traffic is easily possible due to massive torque combined with very low weight. The hydraulic brakes are as good as from modern cars. Long distance driving up to 60mph is possible too.
The restoration focused to restore the car into an original state, as close as possible to what Ford racing has done in the 1930’s. This includes a rare Ford Model B four-cylinder engine and very early hydraulic brakes as used in racing. The rebuild has come close to 35.000€ and includes many spare parts.

Spares provide the car another 100+ years of life without worries to find the right spares
This Speedster is not a cheap replica put together in a hurry for low cost to look shiny – this Speedster was restored to original, with high quality, to look and feel original as possible.
Independent assessments by vintage car experts valuing the car to 99.500€. Assessment will be provided with the car. Ford Speedster in similar technical condition have been sold in the magnitude of 90.000 bis 100.000€, evidence can be provided with the car. Appreciate offers please in the range of the assessed value, or lower when spare parts are not needed and could be sold separately.
The car is licenced on German plates can be looked at and test driven any time.
I’m selling the Speedster since a new restoration project has been started and space is needed.
