Chassis #002. Once owned by Roger Penske and George Wintersteen. Now owned by the Simeone Museum.

The blue "car" is actually a spare body for the roadster. It was created so the car could be vintage raced without destroying the original body you see here. What is interesting is the small block hood w/ the louvers. I call it the sm. block hood because I can't find any evidence of the hood being used once a big block was installed in the car.

Here is the aluminum 377 ci. small block. Complete with Webber carbs.

Do you happen to know where the "spare" body was built? If it was in Atlanta I was involved with the project, which was secret-secret at the time.

Bill,

I'll see if I can find that information for you the next time I go down to the museum.
