This 80-plus-year-old classic from the Bill Ewing collection has a Miller/ Offenhauser 247-cid powerplant with a very rare Pirrung intake manifold and two DD Winfield carburetors.
Built in 1933, this car raced for nearly 20 years on the West Coast, winning the 1934 Pacific Coast AAA Championship and finishing fifth in National AAA points, as driven by Harris Insinger. On March 12, 1935, he won Ascot’s Helmet Dash and 100 Lapper. Later that year in September, he was killed in a 100-miler in Oakland driving this car.
Bill has an unmatched eye for detail and a love for the sport that runs much deeper than the ordinary fanatic. A long-time fabricator/machinist who can make art from the rustiest piles of metal furnished, he uses all of his own resources for restoration, with the exception of paint and lettering. He purchased the car and restored it in the late ‘80s. The beauty still shines as if it was completed yesterday.
