Does anybody know of JERAULDS' speed equipment from back in the day?
Well I put this up a couple of hours ago - man the HAMB moves fast!
Hmm... Well, I can tell you that Jerauld's liked to move fast.
I do know them and they were some really talented Hot Rod and Drag Racing folks plus they would team up with another shop from 41st and Market in San Diego named Culbert's Automotive and go to the Dry Lakes. That was when Edwards AFB runways were called Muroc Dry Lakes. And then there was El Mirage and on occasion another up in the Saline Valley east of Hwy 395 on a back road into Death Valley. The work I saw of their was always first rate. I lived in Spring Valley at that time which is just a few miles east of their shop.
I think they were mentioned here on the hamb before on a san diego speed shops thread. Or maybe it was a bean bandits thread.
Go to the Garage Journal and in the Garage Gallery section there is a thread called Restored 1930's Auto Shop. You will find a bunch of Jeraulds info in that thread, it might take some searching.
Arnett and his crew did have a close relationship with that shop. I do remember when they had a Ford Flat Head with a 180 degree crank in it in 1957 at Paradise Mesa east of National City. I think they got the idea from one of the Jerauld's.
