Here's a nasty Bantam. Neil Leffler's A comp coupe. The engine in this car became the front engine in the Leffler & Coburn Iron Mistress Messerschmidt.

OK Steve, you redeemed yourself.  I like the green stocker. Don't think I've seen a coupe with it's original fenders.

The fenders make it look like a cartoon car. So big!

Here's a few more stockers w/ fenders. No wonder they took them off!

1933 American Austin Bantam
Lines get blurry on the early cars as Bantam was Austin early on.
Dean probably knows more about Austin/Bantam than I do.

Hello,
     Back in 1960, there was this cool looking black Bantam coupe at the Smokers meet in Bakersfield.  It sounded great and had one of the best looking exhaust pipe set ups around.  But, as the day went on, the little coupe was outgunned in the eliminations by the powerful, Mooneyham coupe.  It was a great day of racing for everyone, though...very memorable.

Hello,
     Eldon Dye had a very interesting Bantam that went through some transformations in a couple of years.  It was a pickup body before it transformed into a coupe.  We were able to film the transformation from the early brown body to the blue with white racing stripe and the big 671 Hemi at Lions and Bakersfield.  A hard charging bantam body racer.
