Marc Shiliro's Classic Cars
You're looking at another beautiful classic car listed by MS CLASSIC CARS!
1956 Race Craft Quarter Midget and Custom Pedal Car -- $14,900.00
Hello, I’m Marc Schiliro the owner of MS CLASSIC CARS.  You might recognize my name or my business name from beautiful classic cars, trucks and motorcycles I’ve collected and sold nationally.  I’ve got over 20 years of classic vehicle experience.  I’d like to put that experience to work for you.  I’ve learned a lot and I’m educated in many different makes and models ranging from the early 1900’s to current.  Over the years I’ve collected and sold over 400 classic vehicles which I’m very proud of.  I sell a large percentage of my inventory from networking and from the various websites I advertise on.  I sell a small percentage of my inventory at various auctions such as Barrett Jackson.  I’ve set many sales records and have had many vehicles sell in the top 25 highest sale priced vehicles at multiple Barrett Jackson auctions.  I’ve also featured many classic vehicles at different auctions across the United States. I’ve had many vehicles that have been featured in multiple magazines and multiple websites.  I specialize in beautiful classic vehicles that are at a higher level of quality than most being advertised for sale. I collect classic vehicles that are already completed and slightly redesign them, service them and detail them. I have also coordinated restorations from start to finish. 

The MS CLASSIC CARS showroom is located in Seekonk, Massachusetts and was established in 2012.  The MS CLASSIC CARS service department and multiple storage facilities are also located in Seekonk, Massachusetts.  The MS CLASSIC CARS operations are closed to the public.  A private viewing of a vehicle or an automotive detail can be made scheduled by appointment Monday through Friday.  The MS CLASSIC CARS inventory consists of roughly 50 classic cars and trucks that we own, service and detail.  Each vehicle is presented with detailed descriptions and multiple photos.  We offer no consignment inventory.  When you call you deal directly with me. I know each vehicle well and will go over the vehicle of your interest in full detail.  I’ll also assist you with any other needs such as trades, financing, insurance or shipping.  I promise to make the process from start to finish easy and enjoyable.  I take a lot of pride in my business and my reputation reflects that.  I appreciate the opportunity to earn your business!

I've been collecting classic cars and trucks for over 15 years now and have seen a lot happen. I've seen the hobby continue to grow not only on the internet and auctions but also with the amount of television shows, magazines and websites that are related to classic cars in some form or another. I strongly believe the classic car market is a great place to invest in. When the economy is strong, the classic car market is extremely strong. When the economy isn't so strong the classic car market holds its own. I've sold classic cars and trucks in both economic conditions. The reason classic cars make such a great investment is because people are crazy about cars, especially classic cars.  These people aren’t just one age group but all different ages ranging from very young to very old.  It’s a much diversified market.  I've learned it's not just people in the United States but its people all over the world.  Roughly 20% of my sales are from people who live outside of the United States.  Some examples would be Canada, Australia, Mexico and Europe.  Also from what I’ve learned roughly 20% of bidders at auctions are also  people who live outside the United States. 

  Over the years I've noticed that the higher quality classic cars have always commanded a higher price. Even people who don't have any classic car experience can recognize and appreciate attention to detail. Over the last 10 years the overall market has been very strong and I believe it will continue to grow.  Certain classic cars prices are on the rise and others are on the decline.  It’s all about supply and demand not about a good or bad economy.  The classic cars that are on the rise are the cars that a lot of people want but there aren’t many on the market for sale.  The classic cars that are on the decline are the cars that a lot of people don’t want anymore and there’s many on the market for sale. Of course, if the car is a rare model and spectacular it will command a higher price as I mentioned. Desirable factory correct classic cars that are documented with matching numbers always make solid investments.  Custom cars have remained strong because each car is different from the next one. They each have their own character and there worth what people are willing to pay.

  Prior to this business I was just a blue collar guy who was working full time selling new and used Mercedes Benz.  I was very passionate about classic cars and trucks so I decided to sell them part time.  Although I had my used car dealer’s license I didn’t have my own dealership.  Overall things were going just fine but my dream was to open my own classic car and truck dealership.  I decided to give up my full time job with health insurance and a 401K to open a new classic and truck dealership.  I had to invest a ton of money to make that happen which required using my family’s savings and acquiring loans such as a home equity line of credit.  I also now would have a lot of overhead that I didn’t have before.  The bottom line is I went all in.  Do you think I would’ve done all that if I didn’t think the classic car and truck market wasn’t going to remain strong?  “I’m putting my money where my mouth is”.

STORY:
NOT MUCH IS KNOWN ABOUT THE ORIGINAL OWNER OF THIS VEHICLE.  IT WAS PURCHASED NEW AT THE FACTORY BY A CALIFORNIA HIGHWAY PATROLMAN FOR HIS TWO SONS IN MID-1956.  THEY WERE GIVEN IT AS A CHRISTMAS PRESENT BUT WERE TOO YOUNG TO DRIVE IT.  IT WAS REGISTERED BY THE QUARTER MIDGET RACING ASSOCIATION ON JANUARY 16, 1959 AND WAS GIVEN NUMBER 71C.  IT WAS RACED IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA IN 1959-1960 BY THE BOYS.  THE ENGINE STARTED LOOSING POWER AND THE BOYS LOST INTEREST. 

THE CAR WAS THEN PURCHASED BY CALIFORNIA PUBLISHER DAN POST FOR HIS CHILDREN.  THEY RAN IT FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS BUT DID NOT RACE COMPETITIVELY.

IN 1965 OR SO, COLLECTOR LES LINDWIG OF PHOENIX, ARIZONA BOUGHT THE CAR TO RESTORE AND DISPLAY IN HIS MUSEUM WHICH WAS NAMED THE LINDWIGS CAR COLLECTION.  IT WAS LOCATED AT 10651 NORTH CAVE CREEK ROAD IN PHOENIX, ARIZONA.  THE RESTORATION NEVER TOOK PLACE.  ONE DAY LES LINDWIGS LONG TERM FRIEND JIM JOHNSON SPOTTED THE QUARTER MIDGET IN THE COLLECTION AND MADE A DEAL TO PURCHASE IT FOR HIS SON RICK AS A CHRISTMAS PRESENT.  HIS PLAN WAS TO RESTORE THE CAR WITH HIS SON.

RICK DISPLAYED MECHANICAL TALENT AND HELPED HIS DAD WITH BANTAM RESTORATION WORK.  SO HE NOT ONLY GOT THE QUARTER MIDGET BUT HE ALSO RECEIVED A SET OF TOOLS TO USE IN THE PROJECT. HE WASTED LITTLE TIME GETTING TO WORK.  WITH HIS DADS HELP RICK BEGAN TO USE HIS TOOL SET TO DISASSEMBLE THE CAR IN NEW YEARS WEEKEND OF 1985.  SEVERAL WEEKENDS LATER HE HAD THE CAR TOTALLY TAKEN APART AND HE THEN SEPARATED THE PARTS INTO SEPARATE PILES FOR SANDBLASTING, CHROME PLATING AND REPLACEMENT. IN EARLY FEBRUARY THE JOHNSONS WENT TO A LOCAL BODYSHOP WHERE RICK DID HIS OWN SAND BLASTING OF THE CHASSIS AND OTHER PARTS.  HE ALSO DID THE PRIMER AND FINAL PAINTING OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL WEEKENDS.  THE FRONT END PARTS WERE TAKEN TO A LOCAL CHROME SHOP FOR REPLATING WHILE THE NON REPLACEABLE PARTS WERE TAKEN TO ANOTHER SHOP FOR CADMIUM PLATING.  THEY BOTH DECIDED TO KEEP THE ENGINE THAT WAS IN THE CAR BUT REPLACE IT WITH A 4HP TECUMSEH ENGINE.  THIS ENGINE IS CAPABLE OF A TOP SPEED OF 60MPH.  DURING THE RESTORATION THEY TRIED TO KEEP IT AS ORIGINAL AS POSSIBLE.  THIS WAS A NUT AND BOLT SHOW QUALITY RESTORATION. 

BOTH JIM AND RICK THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A GREAT IDEA TO BUILD A MATCHING CUSTOM QUARTER MIDGET PEDAL CAR FROM SCRATCH.  THIS MEANT ALMOST EVERY PIECE WOULD HAVE TO BE HAND BUILT WHICH ISN’T AN EASY TASK.  TOGETHER THEY MADE IT HAPPEN AND TRULY MADE A ONE-OF-A-KIND PEDAL CAR.  THE PEDAL CAR WOULD BE ALWAYS BE BY THE SIDE OF THE QUARTER MIDGET FROM THIS POINT FORWARD.

ONCE THEY WERE BOTH COMPLETED, THEY WERE SHOWN ON THE INTERNATIONAL SHOW CAR ASSOCIATION CIRCUIT (ISCA) IN 1986-1988.  THE QUARTER MIDGET WAS THE MID AMERICA DIVISION CLASS CHAMPION.  ONCE THEY WERE DONE SHOWING THE PAIR THEY DISPLAYED THEM AT THERE HOUSE FOR THE NEXT 29 YEARS.  IN 2017 THEY DECIDED IT WAS TIME TO SELL THEM BOTH AND MS CLASSIC CARS JUMPED ON THE OPPORTUNITY.

Unfortunately most classic vehicles that are being advertised for sale by dealers, private parties and auctions aren't exactly what are being advertised for sale.  This is an industry with no real guidelines and everyone's opinion is completely different.  The average consumer doesn’t realize classic vehicles weren’t restored at the factory and are being restored by people in their garages.  Everyone’s level of restoration experience is different and it shows in the restoration.  An example would be a classic vehicle that's  being advertised as an original model with matching numbers could be a phony with a reproduction trim tag and re stamped numbers on the engine block, etc.  Another example would be a classic vehicle is being advertised as a full restoration when indeed only a few things have been restored.  There are many classic vehicles listed for sale that have cosmetic and mechanical issues with such items as the body, paint, glass, lights, body hinges, gauges, window components, steering components, upholstery, engine leaks and tuning, radiators, transmission, rear end, brake components and suspension components.  The consumers are spending thousands of dollars repairing the classic vehicles they've purchased after the sale.  A bad purchase could turn into the buyer’s worst nightmare and be extremely costly!

MS CLASSIC CARS specializes in beautiful classic cars and trucks that are at a higher level of quality than most being advertised for sale. I personally have selected these vehicles and take pride in what I represent.  I'm not a classic car dealer who is only looking to make a quick buck.  I’ve seen dealers and private parties purchase classic vehicles at auctions and online and immediately list them for sale.  Most of these vehicles aren’t being advertised correctly and haven’t been serviced or detailed.  This business is my career and reputation which means everything to me.  I do the best of my ability to represent quality classic cars and advertise them honestly.  To be clear I’m not in the restoration business.  I represent classic vehicles that have already been restored.

  This vehicle is owned by MS CLASSIC CARS and is located in Seekonk, MA.  I personally have seen, touched and driven this vehicle.  This vehicle has been through a service and detail process which is documented with an MS CLASSIC CARS invoice.  I write the descriptions, take the photos, advertise them for sale and answer all the calls and emails.  I'll personally go over the entire vehicle and tell you everything I know about it.  I'll also give you my opinion if it’s truly the right vehicle for you. I’ll consider all trades and also offer financing if necessary.   Once you've committed to purchase a classic vehicle from MS CLASSIC CARS, I’ll make it a very easy process from start to finish.  Once the funds have cleared I'll immediately mail the paperwork USPS 2-day air.  A CD with the description and photos of the vehicle you purchased will be included in the package.  I’ll also assist in shipping your vehicle to its new home.

         If you've read the introduction tab or visited my website you’ll probably agree I'm a bit of a perfectionist and represent very detailed classic vehicles. MS CLASSIC CARS has a great reputation and we continue to raise the bar in the classic car and truck world.  I sell our classic cars and trucks very quickly because consumers see the value.  I look forward to working with you.  Please read my website testimonials and eBay positive feedback.  Thank you for the opportunity!
