|Circa 1988 Sprint Car
The car looks like it is leaning towards Bill because, in the rear it is; there is 4" of stagger between the rear tires.
I took this shot to talk about those rear tires.
Left Rear: 104-14x17, near as I can tell, this refers to circumference, width, rim.
The 14 is for 14" wide tread on a 17" Dia. Rim
Right Rear: 108-18x17
|Late 50's, early 60's 110 c.i. Offenhauser Midget||Ford Flathead 60 V8 with two single barrel carbs. Though a V8, there are only three exhaust ports per side.|
|Late 50's, early 60's 110 c.i. with hood open||As you can see, the Offy was a twin cam engine. 4 cyl. 110 ci in its smaller form. Sprint cars used a 255 ci and later a 270 ci version. The 110's were virtually identical scale models of the bigger engines.|
|Another shot of the 48 car.|
|This is a Chevy Sprint Car driven by Billy Wilkerson in his heyday. It is beautifully restored as you can see. Those wheels are "true" mag (magnesium) wheels. Light weight and strong.|
