Re: Modified Hot Shot came home, with tons of spares


Congratulations on your new purchase. Before having much concern about the engine running rough, run it thru several heat & cool cycles, things have a tendency of loosening up and reseating themselves.

As far as the tranny, not staying in second and third gear, rebuilding shifters is quite a common repair procedure.

My Hot Shot that I found on made it's way to CT.
The previous owner, Hugh Heishman, had a Crosley dealership in about 1950, then one of the first Porsche dealerships, in VA. He built and raced Crosleys, Porsches, and others (Owned Z28 #1 which ran in Trans Am in '67) and built this car himself. I don't have a lot of info, so I posted pictures of the spares etc. It should be a public posting, feel free to comment.

It's not running well, backfiring a lot, and won't stay in 2nd or 3rd gear so it needs some sorting/finishing. Engine sounds great mechanically. It seems to be built EXTREMELY well and when the carb kicks in, it seems quite powerful and wants to rev! Will post pictures of the car's mods and systems later.
