Item specifics

Condition:

Used

 
Up for a no reserve auction is a very unusual and rare early, circa 1940 in out clutch box trans, dog clutch, etc. I bought this in 2008 for $1,000 when I was going to build a circa 1930 to 1950 sprint car, speedster, racer, race car, etc. I was going to use a Ford Model A or B engine or a flathead, flat head engine.

There are no markings anywhere on it. I do not believe it is by Ambler. However it is a multiple disc model used by Harry Miller and Fred Offenhauser in the late 1930s. Harry Miller, Duesenberg and others also used a multiple disc transmission in the 1920's, including the 1928 Model AR transmissions. If this is Miller or Offy, it is probably worth $10,000 plus. I simply have no idea the builder. I bought it because it was early, in very nice condition, and appeared complete. It was disassembled in 2008 and shipped to me in as pictured. I just took these photos March 13th 2012.

It came from an old, antique sprint car parts collection. What you see is what you get. Everything appears super nice, including the multiple disc clutches, box case, clutch assembly, shafts, etc. Appears to have a 4 hole set up in the rear for a Ford product. Again, could also be Miller and Offenhauser pattern. Early boxes in this condition seldom come up for sale, so don't miss this one. This is the only sprint part I have for sale. If you collect Dreyer, Hillegass, Rajo, Frontenac, Fronty, SCCA, Indy Indianapolis, Chevy , Chevrolet, Roof, Laurel, Winfield, etc. stuff this is for you. Professional wooden crate included with winning bid. UPS is a flat fee of $125.00 in the lower 48 states. This is a HEAVY piece! VERY high quality! Prefer payment by cash or check.

Additional Information - One of the country's experts on Millers and Offenhausers, and a frequent author on the subject feels it is a 2 speed assembly for a 110 C.I. Offy midget racer. That being the case, this box is extremely rare, desirable, and valuable. Please share this info with your friends.

An additional expert on Offenhauser engines and transmissions contacted me and said the trans was used on sprint and big cars. Thus it seems it can be used on most any size race car. It can also be used in cars with engines other than Offy.
