Does anybody know if this car was blue and white like the '66? I want to do a painting of it.
Lavern wasn't a part of the 39 Studebaker team. He was in the service at that time. After he came home from overseas he got hooked up with Charlie Garrett and they bought the 33 willys coupe and ran that in c/gas untill the early seventies.
The picture on the far right shows (believe it or not) Lavern on the far left ,and Charlie Garrett on the far right on the ramp truck late 60's early 70's
Here's also a shot of Charlie and Lavern with the 33 Willys frame and the Corvette that they campained after the Willys.
Here's a couple more:

The Yankees show the Brits how it's done, as the "Hemi Under Glass" powers it's way on Lord March's curvy driveway at the Goodwood "Festival of Speed"......
Good old Ferd was the guy who knocked me off the "Top Dog" list in '63. Years later was one of our best customers at Ai Fiberglass with his '63 Vette.
Nice 56,Rich.Probably long gone.Ferd was a tough one.The old "Top Dog" list.Good story.
Still want me to try those scans for you?
