It was purchased by William Schoof of Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1935 and campaigned nationally thru 1949 as the 'Fox Point garage Special' or the 'Schoof Special.' As a race car it was constantly modified and occasionally wrecked, notably at Milwaukee in 1948 and Indianapolis in 1949. It has been restored to the start of the 1949 season configuration and how it ran at the Indianapolis '500' that spring finishing 10th. Duke Dinsmore had qualified it at 119.84 mph at the 1947 Indy 500 event.
The car has a 101-inch wheelbase, Houdaille shocks, and many components from a 1941 Ford. There is a 270 cubic-inch 16 valve twin cam engine that produces approximately 325 horsepower.
