Richcralt Special

At the World of Speed Museum in Wilsonville,Oregon -see previous story-is a corner with Bonneville Salt Flats hot rods.Featured is a hot rod built into a WW2 bomber fuel drop tank .Behind the drop tank special is this wonderful device -the Richcralt Special. I don't know anything about the car but I just love its looks with all those louvres and the fact that it -like the drop tank special- has not been fully restored.
I have now found out that the car is part poseur.Apparently it is 1930 Dodge coupe hot rod built by some 20year olds in Cincinnati in 2007. They built it to have as a driver when they went to Bonneville.Nice one.
