1964 Bobsy SR3 Sports Roadster

  • Chassis Number: SR3-004
This car was built in 1964-65 in Medina, Ohio, by H-Modified National Champion Jerry Mong for Chuck Dietrich to drive, with a Houder Brothers of Cleveland, Ohio Corvair Motor. John Marcoski, who worked for General Motors on the Reynolds Aluminum/GM 2-liter Corvair project, then installed a 3-liter Yenko Stinger motor.

GM and Reynolds sponsored three cars: one for George Follmer, a Lotus 23 Corvair; one for Jerry Titus/Scooter Patrick, a Corvair Genie; and this SR3, which is the only remaining car. This engine program led into the alloy big block Can-Am and Vega motor. One of the three other SR3s was the overall winner at Chimney Rock in 1967.

Long-time Yenko Stinger driver, Jim Schardt, found this complete car in a barn in 1988, with a Corvair engine and the only approved SCCA roll bar made out of aluminum (3-inch diameter). Schardt did a two-year restoration, then raced this car, with its only west coast appearance being at the Monterey Historics in 1995, and it qualified 12th and finished 4th.

For the next seven years, Corvair engine builder Starr Cooke annually contacted Schardt to see if the car might be for sale, and in May of 2002, a deal was struck.

The car features an all-aluminum barrel/steel motor by George Salih (two-time crew chief winner of the Indy 500), a Porsche fan assembly developed by Jerry Titus, and a Hewland MK-5 5-speed transmission by Taylor engineering.

The car weighs less than 1,000 pounds.
