Re: Star Speedster?

Not sure what if anything is 1924 Star. Its a home made item of bits and pieces. Wheels off ? lights off ? etc Neither W 4 or W5 have that bore. Lots of hits for it in search going back to mid 2000's.

1924
Continental W-4, four-cylinder, L-head type, detachable head; bore, 3-1/8"; stroke, 4-1/4"; 130.4 cubic inches.
1925
Continental W-5. 35 horsepower, four-cylinder, L-head engine. Bore, 3-3/8"; stroke, 4-1/4"; 152 cubic inches.

Lots of pics of it on

Calif plates 312-022

Pic 8 shows right side of engine .. don't know if there is anything there to give a clue what engine is.
Pic 6 shows were the hinges are covered over for touring / roadster doors. The steering wheel spider is a late 1920 Ford T one reversed. Ya can't hide a Ford T steering spider any year.

Can't see the rad crest but seems the 26 and later one Ah ha it does have later crest

Rick, You can find his name in the 2012 or 2013 membership roster under the state of CA. I have emailed him about his car but can't find the email. It was a five (5) year project.
