Makes me wonder who has my old Gasser. The one in my avatar
^Yes, we definitely want to know "the rest of the story!"^
thank you for sharing this.. so cool...
Fresh 1967 427SOHC on E-Bay
Wow, just Wow!
Great history, hop you get to make a pss in it when it's finished.
Man that is so kool ! The driver of this that must have carried his balls around in a wheel barrel ! Damn man that is some scary stuff at a 9 second blast .
I reckon that second pic with the guy with no shirt was taken by me in the pits at Indy in 1966. My son posted it on the HAMB years ago with a story about our trip from Australia to the US to do a 6 month hot rod tour.
must have been some crazy ride with that frame!
very kool! I think you deserve a hamb of the month award!
What a great story!

The whole story is just amazing. I guess the stars do align once in a while. I do hope the owner keeps us up to date on the progress.

I just stumbled onto this article by accident looking for something else. Looks like the cars original SOHC has been found, just by chance, and it's coming home to be reinstalled after all the time apart. Great news!
Wow and Wow! That cleaned up nicely and glad that he was able to get the missing pieces.
Fantastic! Great things do happen sometimes.
That is so cool!
HAMB of the month award my Ass!!! HAMB of the century award is more like it!!! TOO FRIGGIN KOOL!!!
Right On Josh! Great hot rod archeology! Good karma out the wazoo.
Stumpy you needed to look no further than the first page for that info...
^^ These late nights down here are wearing me down, either that or I need new glasses. It was on the interweb so it must be true then?
It is a totally cool story all around...A time capsule found, and two coincidental connections and a really cool Hamber.
Ok, here’s the real update. The car is now back in KY with its new owner Phillip Yeiser. Here is a picture with Phillip sitting in the car and Dave Forry and my my ugly mug. That article says that the motor was bought is not accurate. I’m still trying to get it. More updates to come
Unbelievable, very cool story!
Great story good to see it made it back home.
Tell Phillip if he wants a copy of that pic from the pits at Indy in 66 to let me know and I'll get one taken off the slide and send it to him.
That is quite the wacky steering set up...is that angled stuff typical of this vintage of racer?...I suppose it had something to do with the monster in the engine bay no doubt...
