Ever since my brother took me to Lions Dragstrip in late 1957, I was happy and enthralled at the sights and sounds of uncapped, powerful motors from the race cars. When we kept going to Lions weekly, I began to see some that stood out more than the others.
One thing I noticed is that when some race cars came to the line, people stood up, even though they had good sit down viewing seats. One of the race cars that became a favorite of mine, was the white/yellow, 1929 Ford Model A Sedan coming out of Reath Automotive.
1.5 MILES AWAY FROM REATH AUTOMOTIVE, CO- SPONSORS OF THE 29 ALTERED SEDAN, Dosser Motors
The Altered sedan had the look that no other race cars had, and definitely sounded like it could conquer the world. We saw this sedan almost weekly as they were Long Beach locals and Reath Automotive was THE place to go for “go fast” parts. Their location was 7 miles away in East Long Beach, but it was “drag race central” for a lot of Long Beach hot rod/drag racers.
This Altered Sedan was the first in a long line of Reath Automotive sponsored race cars. The list of sponsored race cars led us to make Reath our home court for parts and of course, wise advice from Joe Reath, even to us teenagers.
“At Lions in 1959-60, there was this sedan that just made everyone look when it came to the line. It was once the Koenig/Sundin sedan, Reath/Maillard (a great combo), and the Dosser Bros chopped sedan. Eventually, it became known as the Dosser/ Reath Automotive sedan. You could not walk by it in the pits without stopping to look at it. It had a white body, yellow frame, yellow wheels…what a set up. It was very loud and fast. Here is a compilation of the runs we were able to film at Lions.”
the subject is also the art.........
