The 'Riverside Special' was built in 1932 by Al Bro in Appleton, Wisconsin. The early 1930s were a time when an individual could design and built a race car to compete in the Indy 500. The car was built in the semi-stock so-called 'Junk Formula' style of the early 1930s. Rules in 1930 dictated the two-man body style for a driver and a ride along mechanic. This car has a Chrysler chassis and a Chrysler 6-cylinder flathead engine with Winfield carburetors. It also has a Chrysler 3-speed transmission, a Marmon front axle, Bendix mechanical brakes, Ross steering and Dayton knock-off wire wheels - a true mix of production parts in the 'Junk formula' style. This car was a daily transportation to and from the wartime submarine factory in Manitowoc, WI. It was well known in Neenah, WI for outrunning the local Police.
