In the capable hands of Carl Marchese, the Gallivan head Model T block special was driven to a victory in the 1924 Milwaukee race and set a new record on the State Fair Park track at 77.7 mph. The car continued to race for the next few years. It was later discovered in an Indianapolis wrecking eyar in 1952. The car was later restored to its former glory.
It was brought to the 2007 Monterey Sports & Classic Car Auction presented by RM Auctions, where it had an estimated value of $25,000 - $35,000. It was offered without reserve. The estimated value proved to be underestimated, as bidding quickly surpassed those figures. As the gavel fell, the lot had been sold for $41,250 including buyer's premium.
