Bob Pankratz standing behind the car the tall guy Emmett Malloy bought the car from Agajanian and after a few races he had Pankratz, who was working for him at the time, upgrade it. This Malloy car is the first Sprint Car to use Halibrand mag wheels, a quick change rear with a 2 inch open tube axle and an adjustable weight jacker on the front suicide spring mount.

I'm aware of the site you got the pic and info on the Pankratz "Malloy-Agajanian" car and it is pretty much all wrong. The car was built by Bob Pankratz but it was for a PNW owner by the name of Michalbus for Bob Gregg (the driver in the seat) to drive. It turns out that Michalbus was a Mormon and auto racing was regarded as frivoulous and he was encouraged to divest his racing interests, which he did by selling it to Indianapolis car owner Hollis "Bill" Cheeseman. It then became known as the Cheeseman Offy and was highly successful in the Midwest and is regarded as one of the winningest sprint cars ever. But Emmett Malloy and J.C. Agajanian never had anything to do with the car, though Malloys son, Tom , does have it in his collection nowdays.
