Fred Scully, pre WWII midget builder and racer, turned to Sidecars after the war. Below are some pictorial memories of Fred and his fellow competitors, sent to us to enjoy by his son, Bruce.....Thank you Bruce.
Fred Scully and his 3rd self constructed midget. Fred first drove midgets at Maitland in 1936 and drove this car at a later date after WWII at the Sydney Sports Ground Speedway.
Son Bruce still has the steering wheel of this old car.
The midget was built with a 1939-40 A model Ford engine, a George Beavis cam, George Beavis 2 speed box, a Campbell manifold, a Muller's radiator, a Winfield carburettor and had magneto ignition.
