Looks about the right size to hold a soft top.

Nope, no one cared about those in the old days, these were just cars....

Hello Adam,

I lived in Langhorne, Pa in the 50s and 60s. I remember seeing a Speedster in the early 60s around
town . Interesting that the factory would ship a box of that size to an individual with Holberts about a 30
minute drive away. The shipping crate is a " cool find "

The latest you can't make this stuff up. A friend in OR said he had a 912 he wanted to sell. He wanted to keep the wheels, I said ok. He said he would put some roller wheels on it for shipping, works for me. He got creative and it was hilarious. I think I got a combination of BMW and Mercedes wheels, the trick to getting them to work was he walled out the lug holes to get them to fit. I'm glad I got 4 wheels that had good tires, it made un-loading the car pretty easy, which is all I needed, so a perfect solution!

That is amazing! Necessity is a mother. I thought those bolt patterns were standardized ...

Latest find in a car, I can't imagine the effects this stuff would have, it looks very scary.

Ok, here is some truly strange stuff. Someone wanted to add a pipe here and add a pipe there. And I've never seen an open top valve cover!

Really subtle nitrous injection ports on those Solex manifolds.
