  • GranCor Museum?

    While searching for a contact for one of Andy Granatelli's Brother's Son's Performance Parts Co. Website to help 00RACER in this post: http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.c...ntake-manifold
    find his needed Original R3 Intake Manifold, I found this on the singlefingerspeedshop.com Forum from Friday July 10, 2009:

    QUOTE:
    "I am looking for the following items for my Hall of Fame Museum, which will open late this year in Auburn, Indiana. I need information on anything speed equipment or cars built by Grancor Automotive Specialists (Granatelli Corportion) like Ford Flathead motors, heads, manifolds, etc. Also, looking for any racecars I owned or built, including Indy cars, street rods, Bonneville cars or a Fordillac. I would like to have any information on the whereabouts of any of the above. I will consider a loan, a donation or I will purchase the items. No matter what, I would like to know what's out there.

    Contact Andy at mrindy500@yahoo. com.

    Thank you.

    I wonder how his Museum in Auburn, IN is coming along, and if his Studebaker era Paxton/STP/Studebaker Corp. items, Cars, Parts etc. matter to him and fit into the GranCor Performance Parts theme of the Museum.

    My understanding of the situation - The building was built. Granatelli backed out of his agreement to have his museum there. The building was auctioned off at a great loss to the builder.

      The following article pretty much covers what many of us "semi-locals" to the Kruse situation have been hearing.

        Take note that that article is just over one year old.
        I believe that since then not only the building that was to be the Granatelli Museum has been sold, but also many "surplus" (to the military museum) military vehicles have been auctioned off.
