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
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
bringatrailer.com 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.
