Here is some of the info from the eBay listing and an old picture with the track nose. The body was misidentified as a '28 way back then. Background: (Based on previous owners’ notes, information and historical documents) This car was originally built and owned by Californians William “Wild Bill” Souza and Manuel Canto and was campaigned in the 40’s and early 50’s as the Golden State Radiator Special. It supposedly ran at several ovals in northern and southern California, including the Oakland 5/8 mile track (see photos!!!!). In addition, historians believe it also ran at the dry lakes where it was featured at the 1997 Muroc Reunion after its restoration. It has remained in its center-seat configuration as last run in the 40’s and 50’s. We still have the original rear tires and wheels which where on the car when we got it and go with the car. The car was found by a California collector in 1993 wearing its original blue body color and silver frame. Remnants of the Golden State Radiator lettering still adorned the car. When found, the car was missing its original track nose and a 1932 Ford grill shell, which were used frequently during the late 40’s and early fifties, was added to the car in its 1993/1994 restoration. In 2013, I acquired the car from the collector who found the car in 1993, sold it in 2014 and I reacquired the old girl in 2015 specifically to apply to run her in The Race of Gentlemen event.
