The early history of this race car is unknown. It was built in 1929. In the 80's Craig Lillywhite found the wreckage of the car in a garage in Rosemead. The property owner had no knowledge of the history and the car had no traceable numbers. The race car probably toiled at tracks such as Legion, Ascot, Gilmore, Mines Field, etc during the thirties and up into the forties.
It took Lillywhite three and a half years to complete the reconstruction. Craig showed the car and ran it in exhibition vintage car races throughout the west since the early nineties. After being in storage for several years, it was acquired by John Kerr in 2003. Under John's ownership it has raced up and down the California Coast including the Monterey Historics.Also photographed at :
