This Beach Racer was built in Jacksonville, FL, by Bert Moyer between 1930 and 1931. He utilized a 1928 Chevrolet Model AB four-cylinder engine with twin Winfield carburetors and other modifications, rear axle, and the front axle. The transmission and brakes are also Chevrolet and they are mounted to a 1927 Essex chassis. The rest of the running gear is a 1926 Chevrolet. The body was so rusty it was duplicated in Jacksonville, FL, by Jimmy Britts and painted by Steve Pisano. The car was raced in northern Florida and Southern Georgia in the 1930s. Bert raced in Atlanta against Ralph DePalma (1915 Indy 500 winner) among other drivers.

In 1935 it was sold to M.L. Dyes. Moyers' son, Davey, re-purchased this car in the 1940s. It was from his widow that the current owners purchased the car in 2006. At the time the car was in boxes in Mrs. Sally Moyer's garage in Jacksonville. She is the daughter-in-law of Bert Moyer. At the time, only the engine was attached to the frame. It has been fully restored by Randy Kimberly and was unveiled at the Amelia Island Concours. It is widely believed to be the only authentic beach racer to survive.
