This ’32 Ford tether car with a Nelson 65 engine was built by Marshall Ziegert, of CA, in 2001. Marshall made his own patterns to cast the pan and body for this coupe. Then he mounted a Nelson 65 air-cooled engine in a horizontal position for power. The car measures about 7 inches wide, 4.25 inches high, 13 inches long, and weighs 6.25 pounds. The wheels and internal components to mount the engine and axles are machined from steel and aluminum bar stock.
