28 -’29 Roadster – Bill Niekamp

3

This car was voted America’s Most Beautiful Roadster in 1950, and it well deserved the title. It was built in 1948 by Bill Niekamp, and it was constructed on a ’27 Essex frame. The engine was a .42 Merc flathead with Evans heads, making the ’29 quite the racer at Bonneville. It was later discovered abandoned in a barn and rebuilt to make a splash at the first Street Rod Nationals.
