    There is a clone of this car that was presented to Wally some years back that is on display at the NHRA Museum in Pomona. The simplicity of the car is astounding.

    Anyone know why there is a British "Hot Rod" in the picture too? Those are not stock wheels and tires on that MG. Hint: he owned Bell Auto Parts.

    Roy Ritcher (sp?) and I think that it had a V8-60 under the hood.

  9. I'm not sure ... but I know that Limeworks did the chassis on the replica Wally Parks Roadster ... Perhaps @Limey Steve will chime in.

    The beauty of that A is that it is the right mixture of style and function.By not overdoing it, he outdid himself.
