I was at a swap meet in Oakland this morning, and got to see a like-new Dooling Streamliner Tether Car.

im not a car guy,  but if it was not as expensive as my used minivan, I may have had to own it.

That would be the Dooling Frog. I don't think the car has or even had a engine in it. Usually the plug is sticking out the roof and there's a hole in the roof for it to protrude.

$29.50. Back when I used to watch "American Pickers" $2000 - $3000 would not be unusual.

Hi All,

I like the 'torsion' front suspension !

Looking at the windows, I figure it is a two seater...
A bit of math and,
A real one would be like 30ft long and over 12ft wide !
I like it !

Take care,
Have fun,
Dave

Two of my club members are really into tether car collections. I spoke with him briefly last evening in regards to this car. He mentioned to me that generally a few engines were used in the Dooling cars. I also said the car pictured didn't have a hole in the roof for a plug. He commented that generally a single round hole in the roof was a indication of a upright mounted Mccoy or Dooling.29. He said many times this hole was offset due to the configuration of the head of the Dooling. A rectangular hole was usually a indication of a Super Cyclone .60 or Hornet .60's. The exhaust stack would protrude through the top and it was generally shaved and filed down to meet the angle of the roof.

The Dooling brothers dominated the golden era of tether car racing. Early they were partnered with Reginald Denny ( a very interesting man also) who supplied engines. The " frog" was an advancement with streamlined body and spur gears. Racers being racers most went with .60 class engines. The Streamliner was not well received by some cause it did not look like a race car, it was also faster.
Later Dooling made their own .61 engine that completely dominated racing. There are many reproductions of these cars that are really frowned upon by collectors.

I think there is a Cyclone in this one

Beautiful engine CB. The Cox gives a good indication of size.

Hi crankbndr,
Thanks for the details on the adjustable ( Cool ) front torsion suspension... Smile
Any one that run,
Must have not done many laps...
No intake, exhaust, cooling...
Must have been brutal on engines.
An electric motor would have a hard time.
I remember un muffled .60s on reeds/early proportional radio.
(Cox .049s were quiet !)
That shell of sculptured aluminum,
Must have 'rung like a bell'.... Smile
I had a 1946? aluminum bandsaw, made near here. (Guelph, Ontario)
Foundery's back then had a wealth of talent. Cool

I e-maled my old flying buddy, who has a Tire Store, sent him this link.
His reply,
"was that the start of Nascar ? "
(his customers do left and right turns)
Take care,
Have fun,
Dave
