  • Rex Easley Studebaker Daytona #11

    Can anyone provide information on the 1964 Studebaker Daytona #11 pictured in the Sept/Oct 2011 issue of Vintage Motorsport magazine?
    The caption with the picture reads as follows: Jeff Taylor in the "Rex Easley" Studebaker Daytona an
    unusual site on this course or any other." The race course is the Mary Hill Loops course near
    Goldendale, Washington.
    The car is also pictured on the web site of the Society of Vintage Racing Enthusiasts in the Northwest
    www.sovren
    Any information would be appreciated.

    What do you want to know about it? It is raced in the Sovren Antique race circuit in the Northwest. I have Pics I took of it, some up close in it's tent others racing.

    It is a Canadian Built late '64 Daytona Hardtop that at one time had a Canadian built GM Engine, "touted" as being "as Factory Built" for class purposes. It has a fully built smallblock (c.i.d.?) and four speed, with a custom cowl induction system, after the stock suspension would not handle the twisty course, the front clip was changed, it is the last I heard, very competitive now.
    The Nostalga Stock Class it runs in must not be too tightly ruled, as it is bending a few!

          Thank you for your detailed response. As far you know then the car is still being run with a GM built engine.

            Thank you for your reference to the October 2008 Turning Wheels article. I had forgotten that but will pull it out. I had hoped the car was being run with a Studebaker built engine.

              That would be correct, AFAIK.

                I hope the subtle humor is being noticed. Rex Easley = "Wrecks easily"
