For years I've been kicking around the idea of a Emory style Outlaw speedster build and as luck may have it, Arden Neer posted his project for sale here.  It checked every single box with the absolute best of the best, so after some negotiations the deal happened. Tom Bucannon and I did a 630 mile road trip on Wednesday and picked up the project that included a fresh 2165 engine and Mendeola chassis with drop floor pans. The last 2 hours of the trip I went though unimaginable monsoons. I crawled around the speedster yesterday making notes right on the primered body surfaces and looked at a lot of Emory Motor Sports photos and specs too. Then took the speedster to a secure storage facility this morning. After I do the Dune Buggy build, I'll pick back up on this thread in December when I'll bring the speedster back home and start from scratch.

Years ago, I sold a couple of black Emory Outlaw shift knobs should anyone have one in their possession I would love to buy it back as they are no longer available.

The fiberglass body is thick and well engineered, I spoke with Rafael in Mexico this morning he told me they widened this body to accept the Mendeloa chassis with the 17" Airkewlwed wheel$. I had to look at the back to see it was 2" wider it's nicely done and the only one wide stock body that exsists.  Engine specs are unknown so I pulled a valve cover and the ports are oval shaped and the valves are huge. I asked Arden to let me know where the engine was purchased from so I can back track for info.....  Jaguar Vapor Grey Metallic is the color choice. The speedster will retain the hoop roll bar and hard tonneau so it will be without a top to replicate an Emory.      .................Recently someone was asking about a scissor top frame assembly: I am going to sell the top frame assembly,  black Stayfast top and side curtains . This to when folded down rests on the rear body as does the Intermeccanica tops.
