  25. Good ol' Junior! Heard he recently started up another race team for his son! He's gotta be in his late 70s? Got to meet him a couple times, he's the real deal.

    Anyone notice the '57 convert has 6 stud wheels? Could this be a "Black Widow" convert, or did they put truck hubs on circuit cars in the day ?

    It looks like a 1955 265 Chev engine. They were a little different than the 56 and newer SBC engines.

    I remember Tim Flock being interviewed the year before he died, and he did say that NASCAR "let you use truck tires" for some years in the mid-'50s. I assumed then that the rest of the gear went with that. Anybody know more about this?

    In the early '70s, my late friend had six-lug hubs on his racing '55 Chevy. So I figured they must still be allowing them, at least on lesser circuits.

    V8 Pilot pick up truck. This one has left hand drive, and a tropical cooling system, you can tell by the vertical hood louvres. The chassis was probably destined for Africa, but for some reason stayed in the U.K. where the body would have been custom built
