Forest Coleman standing by the car, Charley Pitts in the red shirt, Henry Ellington in his famous felt hat.



I wonder if this car handled as good as it looked? To me , this is the perfect case for the 'homebuilt racecar'. A man builds it himself, but the car and circumstances have a big hand in how it's completed.

Still in the end, there's an almost spiritual connection between the driver and the car . It's even better when you win races.

 

I know everybody had to build their own cars, but even in this group, this car looks like a bottle rocket! May not have lasted long, but I'll bet it was fast while it did!

This one could win a few car shows today!

 

Interestingly- The window is cut out almost like an Edmunds(angles down like a '7'-yet Edmunds car hadn't taken storm yet. I wonder if Edmunds got his ideas for a top from the Kansas cars? Luther Brewer said Edmunds would come in and look everybody over just like they all did.

This window is cut the same way

 

I am thinking though that the southwest supers from Amarillo on out to El Paso and then Manzy, ending up in California- had a window treatment that angled down before they show up here.

This car was built by Ernie McCoy of Arkansas City, Ks. he had a Engine shop. He was very good at building Flathead Fords and yes this car did run well. I seen Forest at Bryson Mills Chile Feed two weeks ago.

Welder, Thanks for posting the pictures. I especially love the #7 coupe. How did they make the coach body look like a coupe? Dan
