This 1912 Barney Oldfield racer is quite large and not many parts.  Because it’s so large it was very easy to put together. I used pine and Baltic Burch plywood and as on my Chris Craft I used a thin Plexiglas as the windshield.

I bought this plan a while back and put it off because of the boat tail. As I was going through the steps it came together quite easily.

I would recommend this project.

Thanks for lookin’ 1912 Barney Oldfield1.JPG  1912 Barney Oldfield2.JPG  1912 Barney Oldfield3.JPG  1912 Barney Oldfield4.JPG

Hi Bill...did you make the steering wheel or was it purchased?  This is a very cool racer!

Great looking car, at first it looked a bit lego looking with the holes along the chassis and the bits sticking out of the exhausts
