Default The "Grey Goose". "Old Crow's" new sister



Other than a Bellytank Lakester, which to me was always the purist shape and form for a landspeed car, my other true love was an early, single seater, roundy round big car. The style of these early purpose built race cars is pure elegance. So it's always been on my #2 list. And luckily, there is still a racing organization that recognizes these cars and has a competitive class for them,.... the SCTA .

Some of you know about my latest Bonneville project that has been in the works for the past 3-4 years, but I've been fairly quiet about it until it was closer to being a reality.
Well, now that time is finally at hand, so I thought I would share the build pics with everyone.

The car will run in the scta's VOT class (vintage oval track). It's a body class devoted to vintage race cars with pre 1948 engines. We plan to run the model B race engines that we run in the Bellytank, and eventually run the 270 Offy motor that I acquired last year.

The car started as a cowl and tail that was built 30-40 years ago by an aircraft guy that unfortunately passed away some time ago. I was told the body was a back up body for a racing champ car, but I'm not sure which one. The grill was from a 30's Indy car and is hand made from steel. A real work of art. My friend Kieth Allen (who never sells anything) had both in the rafters of his garage. He only sold them to me cuz he knew I would do something with them. I think I made him proud.



I started the work with a pair of hat shaped stamped frame rails from my friend Allen Decker, and then the rear kick up and front frame horns were made from scratch. The front axle is a 20's something Chrysler and the parallel leaf springs are a combination of 30's Essex, 30's studebaker, and ford truck hardware, along with some handmade parts.
The drivetrain consists of a 38 Lincoln zephyr transmission with later 25 tooth gears mated to a 40's Franklin quickchange. The same rear end I run In the tank, it's never failed.












Once I got the car to a roller with the help of friends Logan Davis, Tyrell, and Lantz Soliday, it sat for quite a few months as other projects took precedent.
But once Logan called me to say he was re- opening his old shop "Milestone hot rods" , now called "vintage performance", I said, Great, now you can finish the Indy car, and he did just that, in the few months that it's been at his shop, it's really taken off, thanks in part to fellow Sidewinder Chuck, who has hand bucked over a thousand rivets, she'll definitely be running next year.
Enjoy the pix








Here's the start of the roll cage




We took her out to El Mirage last weekend to pre tech. That's Logans roadster towing behind.




That's about it for now. I'll keep updating as things progress. I hope it inspires, as others inspire me.

To say 'very nice' is an understatement - it is too sweet.
I have a question about the underslung, i see the front rails dip and teh front of the spring is rigid while just the rear shackle can move? Is that typical?
The front axle, is that from a miller or is the kingpin socket a welded piece? The ones i've seen on some millers that socket is a seperate casting pinned to the tube.
Is there any filler/welding to the cowl? It isn't just one piece is it?
Thanks, oj

The cowl is 3 pieces, gas welded together, although the craftsmanship is soo good it's hard to tell, even in bare metal. The axle is a 20's Chrysler, or so I was told. I can't seem to find any pictures of another one. And yes, the front spring setup was quite common on 30-40's cars.

I'm really torn between a paint job or just leaving her in bare aluminum. I'm leaning toward bare aluminum with painted numbers and logo.
Any opinions?

I also got a close up look at it at El Mirage. It's flawless, top shelf work.

Not every scratch built car evokes strong emotions, this car does. I have 2 bare aluminum cars so I'm biased. Nonetheless, I would vote for keeping this one bare with painted numbers and logo. It's the right thing to do!

Bobby, did that frame used to have sort of a stub nose on it that wrapped around the front and had sort of a spring perch type of mount??

Looks bitchin'!

Bobby Green -

Very, very cool!

My vote is for grey or Silver paint with COOP666's "Grey Goose" logo & numbers in a contrasting color [e.g., black or maroon (to match your bitchin' tow vehicle)] ... or better yet, why not just go "full corporate sellout" and opt for one of these paint schemes? :

That is very clever making the rear spring cover panels into an air foil design. Do you think that will create any significant downforce on the rear of the car at speed?

It'll do something that's for sure-Lift? Downforce? Just look at an F1 car today...they will tack on a winglet the size of a post-it-note in the desperate search for downforce.

BadderAsser. Paint the nose and the frame, that's all, no need to cover that fantastic alloy work.

I'd paint it with something higly reflective, like white or silver or a light blue! I can't imagine how hot that would get in the sun on the salt if left bare. Gary

That thing is special for sure and now it is dictating to you (some cars just do that), i think i'd find a 40-50's era airplane guy to design the paint and graphics - absolutely the bare minimum for necessity without extravigant garnishment. The car itself speaks loud and clear and you just can't improve on that.
Those spring covers were a touch of genius, kinda looks like a chain drive cover.

Keep the aluminum scrubbed down so it keep a Satin texture. Run black numbers with a fine maroon line stripped around the it (number). Then do the interior with a wide pleat OXBLOOD seat and a Damascened dash with a large 5" SW curved glass tach front and center. 4 spoke 17" Bell steering wheel and a hand operated fuel tank pressurizer mounted low on dash.....if that's acceptable at Bonneville.

Kind of this vibe...

I just got the fact that both of your race cars are names after booze. That went over my head completely but that may be because I don't drink hahah!!!! It a toast to your expanding empire of bars/lounges....I can dig it!

Looks really nice Bobby! I vote for paint. Old patina and bare aluminum or so overrated these days. Finish it pretty. That way you can make your own patina over the next 20 years of racing the thing. Dale

Ken's Equipment-Hawthorne,CA no hole wheels originally gold anodized, the original aluminum body had been thrashed long ago,so it presently has a 50's era glass replacement as they were considered "peel offs".

One day I'll get an aluminum body back on it,but for now I just have to get it together . It will run a 24 stud Cyclone Equipped flatty and I may go with a 3 speed trans vs a Cyclone in-out box so I can play around with at the dry lakes. I've owned since around March of 98.

Yours is incredible though, mine is nothing like that. Great Build!

Bobby, I left my roadsters aluminum body unpainted for 3 years. I thought it was cool, it was cool but after painting it this year I must admit, it looks better. Still needs stripes and some accents but paint set it off.
Your car is way over the top, paint it.

Oh boy, inspiration just when my two seater is sitting on the back burner waiting for some plus a cash infusion. This one is going to be worth a road trip to watch it race.

Hey Bobby,
Get a "reverse out" job on it...paint the background, leave the numbers ,class des. and any other signwriting as bare Al color......not unlike the can a few posts back but keep the colors "soft".

It's a piece of work....must have been hard keepin it under your hat.

Hope to catch up at Speedweek.

Thanks for the input guys. It seems pretty split 50/50 for paint or not. I'll do some soul searching and we'll see what becomes of it.

And if anyone can help me ID this axle, I'd sure appreciate it. I was told Chrysler, 20's or 30's. Could possibly be Offy? I'm not sure.
