1927 Spade Carillo Ford Roadster




1927 Spade Carillo Ford Roadster
In the early 1950s, Fred "Spade" Carillo modified several cars for competition in the SCTA Road Runners Club. This yellow roadster, built in partnership with Robert Betz, was the fastest of its kind in 1951 when it ran 178 mph across the Bonneville Salt Flats. It featured a handmade tubular frame and a roll bar under the cowl. Carillo would eventually forge a career designing and manufacturing tubular con-rods in Le Mans-winning Ford GT40s, as well as Jack Brabham's 1966 World Drivers Championship-winning racecar.
