    Gentlemen,
    Would someone be able to tell me which months of HRM had the McMullen 32 roadster? To be specific I’m looking for chassis pics of when it still had the Ford trans....if those even exist. Thanks in advance

    Scott

    It's the real car. I have over 200 pictures of it. I worked for the guy that had Roy restore it. Use to take it out every month for a short drive. Ron

    Oh wow! That is awesome! Thank you Ron! I really appreciate it. By chance could you post a few engine pictures and then I should be done bugging you!

  11. Also, the August and September, '64 issues of "Popular Hot Rodding" had some extensive in-the-day photos of the car.

    Wow! Ron, could you start a thread with your pics? Maybe add a few at a time just to tease us. Any or all would be greatly appreciated, Carp.

    Thank you Ron! What a neat car! I can only imagine what kind of quality it was back in the early 60’s!
    John Milner would have definitely had a hard time beating this one.

    My copy of Hotrod April 1963 arrived in the mail. 151 mph at the dry lakes and 11.59 with a 127 mph at the drags is pretty darn impressive! And through a Ford 3spd even!
    It is funny how the article refers to the roadster as “traditional!”
