The Mikkelsen Hisso

     Car owner Carl Mikkelsen is shown above seated in his Mikkelsen Hisso with driver Mel McKee standing beside him.   Mikkelsen had purchased the Hisso engine in this car for $25 as government surplus.  It was equipped with a Model-A Ford clutch but no transmission.  The photo above was taken at Silvergate Speedway, San Diego, California.
