When the owner came to the US as an engineering student at Rensselaer Polythechnic Institute, he worked with Wally Chapman to complete the car. In time, he moved to Canada, and as circumstances did not allow Wally to race, he bought the car and entered it in events in Quebec and upstate New York during the late 1950's. In 1958 the car was the invited Canadian entry in the Bahamas Speed Week. However, they lost the tow car in Georgia and never made it to the Bahamas. The car was sold and was almost immediately destroyed on a .25-mile local dirt track. Some of the special engine and speed equipment was salvaged and saved.
Years ago, the present owner acquired these few remaining parts and still had Chuck Manning's original blue-prints. From these, the Schaghticoke Manning Special was faithfully reconstructed by John Buddenbaum. In 1991, the restored car made its debut at the Monterey Historics and now runs in West Coast Historic events.
