Looks like an early customizer got creative.

It also has the original very common version of racing slicks! I had lots of them in my day.

If you look close, It used to be a coupe, look at doors and winshield.

Ah, that's pretty harsh. I think it's well done.

I don't think the body was ever a coupe. The doors, cowl posts, and windshield look pretty 1928-29 Model A to me.

Other sight said it was from back in 1935, They hauled one of their Bell Auto Parts midgets out to the mid-west to race and try to market more of them. Stopped by the Indy 500 to check out the Miller-Ford race cars on their way back to Bell, CA.

Looks like a real 29 roadster body and windshield to me. Notice what looks like windshield wing nut and screws on windshield post base at cowl. I'd drive it!

Four grown men in an A roadster pulling a track car on a trailer from Bell, CA to Indy and back; must have been quite a trip.
