1934 Dreyer Sprint Car news, pictures, and information
The 'Moore Special,' sporting its mid-1930s signature heart shaped grill, was ordered in 1934 by Don Moore of New Jersey. Originally, a four-cylinder overhead cam engine provided the power. That was replaced, during WWII with a 1941 Ford straight six. The 'Moore Special' was a fiercely competitive car and a frequent winner in the AAA Easter Big Car Division. It was retired from racing in 1952.
Moore's son, Frank, sold the car to John Jackson Sr. in 1970. The current owners purchased it from him in 2008. It is shown in its 1952 configuration and represents the finest original condition Dreyer Sprint in existence.
