This midget racer was reportedly built by Roy Richter and Pop Faulkner and is an aluminum-bodied example powered by a ci Ford V flathead. Hand-formed aluminum bodywork incorporates a large oval grille, and the livery pays tribute to Soda Canyon Racing from Soda Canyon, California. The paintwork shows some touched-up chips and marks. The fitted set of vintage Halibrand 6-pin knock-off mags are fitted with a new set of Firestone dirt tires. The interior is upholstered in black leather, which the seller reports is custom. Instrumentation is simple, consisting of temperature, oil pressure, and fuel pressure gauges.

Midgets have been around for many decades in many different forms. One of the more well known versions of these factory produced race cars was the classic Kurtis Kraft model. The KK, as it was called, was produced in California and usually carried the potent Offenhouser engine. During its career, numerous accidents, as were typical of the day, led to replacement of the nose, front axle, steering, hood, and suspension. Beyond repairing damaged parts, subsequent owners of the car also performed their own modifications, including swapping the original Offy to a Ford V powerplant. Interestingly, thanks to the design of the car, a motor swap could be performed in a matter of minutes.
