OK,it was made into a racer. Looks like a somewhat better job than the Jim Hoe Special. What was its racing record,win.lose,draw or what?
How soon after it was new did it become what is shown in Robbie's picture?

Here is J292 taken in what is now my driveway somewhere between 1964-1966. I'm now sure the previous picture Robbie posted was 292 as the outside pipes match. Also, in the previous picture you can see in the intake for the forward carb protruding through the hood. This car had a dual carb blower but the blower case was different then the ones produced later by Leo Gephart. My uncle told me that the engine was a spare for the MM and was shipped down south in the late 30s. Is that your understanding Randy?

Btw, this photo hasn't seen the light of day in probably 40 years.

Here is a picture taken in the same spot a couple of years later showing the blower.

I can't quite make out the writing on the trunk lid. What did it say?
