      That's one tough looking Hawk with a 3/4 ton rear end in the back. Got to love the Stude race cars.

          Does anybody have any details about this car and its driver? I would certainly like to know some of its past history. It looks like it is a hardtop which I find interesting. Of course if that roll bar/cage is a substantial one it might overcome any flexing issues. Great pictures, thanks.

              are we sure it is a hardtop? could be a coupe. take it from someone who has been there, a 120" wheelbase is not the fast way around a short track. that he won with it means he was way better than most.

                  I notice that the 56 car has shortened up the wheelbase some compared to the 99.

                    Pat:

                    Good catch on the "shortened" wheelbase...I'm sure that there were also some specific efforts to stiffen the frame, too..

                      The three quarter ton rear ends were the poor mans floater rearend version, but they were heavy.

                          It would be neat if someone gathered enough pictures of Stude race cars and made a 2011 Calendar
