Under The Hood

A Rickenbacker in Packerland

Only 4,050 Rickenbackers were built in 1926, and one of the sporty roadsters will make its car show debut at the 2010 Iola Old Car Show in Iola, Wis., July 8-11.

Ronald Jones of Greenville, Tenn., will be trailering his very rare 1926 Rickenbacker to the show early next week where we hope to catch up with this sporty car, named for World War I hero and racecar driver Captain Eddie Rickenbacker.

Here’s a preview of the car:
