    I see two Mercs. If they waiting for engine transplants, I like to have the take outs.

    The first attached photo is of the two Kurtis 500A roadsters for Roger Wolcott that had Chrysler V8 engines in them. A great experiment that didn't work all that well. George Connor and Johnnie Tolan were the drivers. The Chrysler dealer Murrel Belanger had another of these stock block roadsters with the same result.

    The second photo is of George Connor in 1948 as part of the Bennett Brothers/Cotton Henning team. I see that this car is listed as using a Miller engine. Is there any background on this car, Rootie? Could this be a pre-war car that was redone by Myron Stevens?

    Thanks as always!

    I believe the Connor car was originally the #32 Sampson that Bob Swanson first drove in 1939 with the V16 replaced by the Miller inline 8.

    Perfect timing shot, the slicks are still narrow.

    Thanks Rootie! That clears up a lot.

    BTW, that's Alden Sampson in the white shirt leaning over the car with a cigarette hanging from his mouth.

    And I may have my stories mixed up but wasn't Gordon Schroeder on the original Sampson crew? And didn't he end up as the owner of the car after WWII with Spike Jones as the sponsor?

    You're right about Schroeder. He started out at Indy working for Cotton Henning and then Sampson. And I'm pretty sure that is Schroeder standing on Sampson's right in the dark shirt.
