Believed to have been built in 1950, the Geisen is fitted with a low-silhouette, hand-formed body that shows the influences of both types of racing, including a belly pan, narrow profile and cycle fenders. Brooklands racing screens are placed behind a fold-down windshield, in front of which are cowl vents to release hot air from behind the firewall-mounted radiator. The hood is bulged to clear dual cars and vented to extract even more heat from the engine compartment; old-fashioned buckled leather straps keep it in place.
Beneath the completely refinished sheetmetal is a 239CID Ford flathead V-8 equipped with all the best components of the period: twin Stromberg 97 carburetors mounted on an early Edelbrock intake manifold and finned Edelbrock high-compression heads. The column-shifted three-speed manual transmission also reflects home-built creed of economy and simplicity. The sparsely appointed cockpit has been renewed with fresh leather and carpeting, and a full compliment of gauges mounted in a woodgrain dash panel.
The Geisen Special was raced at the very first Monterey Historic races in 1974 by invitation from founder and organizer Steve Earle, and lives on as one of American racing’s classic “homebuilt specials”.
