Black vette--- Looking good, any paint yet?
blackout, Tell me more about the crank-driven water pump please. Is it a vintage piece? Still available?
Looks similar to KSE pump readily available but high bucks. Should be plenty available used and easy to rebuild if necessary.
Looks like a common
It's a Lehman front cover and crankdriven waterpump. They show up on eBay from time to time. I don't know the vintage of them but imagine 60's/70's. Company still in business that has the drives for cam and crank and will rebuild them. I had mine rebuilt. Couple hundred bucks. PM me if you want some more info. Happy to help out. May have another laying around.
Thank you blackout, I'll be using a stock belt-driven pump on my replica. I just think it looks really neat and "racey".
Jump on in there. Hardest part was finding the proper lower hose. I think I bought 5 from Napa till I found the right one that fit. They are infinitely indexable and work proper.

Old post . . . IMO this is the real week end, week night racer. Open trailer, wooden ramps, 4 spare tires, drum of alky, open pickup truck, and probably a tool box. No side-by-side pusher, and no hauler with 10 spares of everything....
additions to history of Beal/Traylor/Schindler/Thomson saga.
thanks to duke cook who got me started on this. after Stearly car was sold to a darrell woodbury of union city,
ohio. spoke to son gary, yes, his father purchased the x beal car about 1961, not sure.
bobby marvin had car thru a lease or other deal with his father. car was #76, B & J spl.
gave up ride to go with wergland.
duke also says history of car was known. put cage on car & chev engine.
besides duke's info, Indiana Open Wheel was good source.
learned dick debolt, dick pratt, audie swartz, mike vandermass, & brent whited were drivers at one time or
another. debolt verif by dau.
anderson speedway gave some results.
1961 dick pratt woodbury #20 std 3rd fin 19th led 153 of 226 laps.
1966 audie swartz no info
1983 mike vandermaas
woodbury's son did send me some pix, 2 attached
P.S. last info i got was that car may have been parted & that chassis poss. went to Mich?????
There was a post of this car on the Facebook sprint car page about 3 to 4 years ago. My memory says it was a picture taken at Tampa, mid sixties, at the IMCA winter event, and it had an extension from the top of the roll bar down to the rear nerf/push bar. It was clearly the same car as the B&J Special, painted red. Good to see you on here, I still have the photos and poster you sent, hidden away at the moment due to a move across town. Many Thanks, hope the car turns up some day.
Nice Job Mlight9
Hello. I am restoring a Sprint Car they say was a Hill- bilt, so I am keen to get info on the Car and Les. Can you help?. Eric
Can you post some pics, please?
wallen's 1960's book shows ken brenn having a "GERHARDT" chassis. 1967.
I assume this is a R E engine car, right???
about 9 yrs ago, hamb post 290-8674, there was a discussion about a car called "WOODIE" owned
by a oakey draut, etc etc. I don't have car now but I do have car "then".
That is the third version. First it was the JH Rose #27 car driven by Don Davis 1962. Then sold to Walt Beletsky for the 1963 season #7, Don Branson one of the drivers. This is the 1964 livery as the Woodie. Bob Marshman the driver at the start of the season.The car was in a horrible crash at New Bremen, where Jim Maguire lost his arm.
Does anyone have the 1947 Memorial Day Sprint Car Race at the Altamont Fairgrounds in NY video. Would love to see it. Thanks
just heard that dick vermeil had a car of his fathers @ pocono this past summer.
anybody have pix of the vintage cars there???
Also Jack Kromer was there. he is a renown photographer.
Seeing the Jet roadster in the Pocono photos brings to mind a thought. Does anyone know where the cars from Don Smith's collection ended up after the auction ?
mr nise, excellent, thanks much,
josh, could you please post some pix of the eastwood spl #2 rail sprint car that was @ pocono in aug.
