Product Information
Specification

Alfred Moss, the father of Stirling Moss, in a Fronty Ford Speedsport at Brooklands in 1925. Alfred Moss competed several times at Brooklands and won the 1925 August Bank Holiday in this car, a Model T-Ford special with a racing Frontenac cylinder head conversion similar to one he had driven previously at Indianapolis. Nineteen cars lined up for the race which was initially led by an A.B.C. Moss won the race at 80.75 mph with a best lap of 85.13 mph causing no little sensation when an oil pipe fractured spraying the exhaust pipe which lit up as the car crossed the finishing line in front of the Finishing Straight grandstand. The car had a boat tail, a flared shield on the scuttle and its aero screen was outrigged in front of the left hand steering wheel, folding down vertically to hang below the top of the scuttle cowl. The radiator bore no resemblance to that of a Ford, the bonnet was well louvred and front brakes were fitted.
