In case you have not seen it: ttp://youtu.be/tIJ8o-5uw3g (http://youtu.be/tIJ8o-5uw3g) Owned by Mike Cleary in CA, driven by his son (who is about 6' 6"). One small mistake, the engine displacement is 336 c.i. Some may remember it at the Cedar Rapids meet also was on display at the Studebaker National Museum in 2012-13. Had the pleasure of riding in it.

I'll never forget my ride in Bob Valpey's #37 "STUDEBAKER SPECIAL" (the Hunt Special)....What a thrill!

Looks like great fun - only thing he was missing was a mic picking up the sound from the exhaust - if my daily sounding like these things the radio would quit working for lack of use...

Wow that was cool! I wonder how it would do on an oval type track that it was built for.
