In the early 1930s Fords V-8 models emerged as a compelling canvas for creative minds. Their sturdy construction and budget-friendly horsepower lured modifiers and customizers like a moth to a flame sparking a wave of automotive innovation. However the phenomenon wasnt confined to American shores alone. Across the South American landscape a unique interpretation of the Flathead phenomenon was brewing resulting in the mesmerizing V-8 Speedster Special we present here.Previously attributed to Italys renowned Carrozzeria Viotti recent investigations unveil a more astonishing lineage. This remarkable machine was born on the chassis of a 1935 Ford Model 48 ingeniously integrating the bodywork of an Adler Trumpf Junior Sport. Produced by Adler between 1935 and 1937 the Trumpf Junior Sport was the roadster rendition of the marques compact front-wheel-drive automobilea pioneering design from the era of pre-World War II German engineering. Despite its original front-wheel-drive design the Sport roadsters body has been seamlessly transplanted onto the Fords rear-wheel-drive chassis.Discovered in the heart of Argentina this extraordinary creation is believed to have taken shape there in the 1960s before being transported to the United States. While the alluring boattail design appears to be a post-importation addition much of the Adler bodywork from the rear axle forward has been carefully preserved. Period photographs taken in the United States prior to its most recent restoration reveal distinct Trumpf Junior Sport elements including the rear fenders.The vehicles origins as a South American car are confirmed by the Ford chassis original right-hand drive configuration indicated by the chassis numbers 18-F prefix. Back in the mid-1930s Argentina and neighboring countries adhered to left-hand traffic patterns. An intriguing touch is the throttle pedal positioned between the clutch and brake. Power is delivered by a standard Ford flathead V-8 utilizing a single two-barrel carburetor and connected to a three-speed manual transmission. Additional components have been sourced from various places: Ford taillights Scintilla headlamps from Switzerland and a Magneti Marelli horn. Carefully considered details abound: Even the tire air filler caps are mounted on the inside of the disc wheels one of the many thoughtful touches that contribute to the cars aerodynamic exterior.Many years ago this Ford underwent a restoration that subtly enhanced its sporting character. Noteworthy modifications include open teardrop front fenders enclosed rear cycle-type fenders streamlined disc covers on all four wheels and two side-mounted spare tiresculminating in a road racing-inspired appearance. While the car does not come equipped with a top it does feature four stanchion receptacles behind the cockpit suggesting the addition of a luggage rack at some point. For outdoor storage a black tonneau cover can be neatly secured over the cockpit.Acquired by famed collector Oscar Davis in 2015 its not difficult to see why this distinctive speedster caught his eye.
