1974 Mercury Montego - Dick Trickle restored!
Great history on this stock car! Look closely at the pictures to see the huge amount of work Ray Evernham's crew has done to this car! More info to follow! Very fun to see at the track, and very competent, not a show car! This is a quality restoration and is a podium car, do not confuse this with an old stock car drug out of the garage and sent to the track. Big Iron Garage does exceptional work!
This 1974 Mercury Montego NASCAR racer was campaigned in the 1975 Daytona 500 by Dick Trickle and was also reportedly raced by Bobby Issac, Herschel McGriff, and Richie Paunch. It has been kept as part of Ray Evernham’s private collection for the last three years and underwent a body-off refurbishment in 2020, including a repaint in its period metallic purple and white #75 livery. The car is powered by a 351ci Ford Cleveland V8 paired with a four-speed manual transmission and equipped with a fuel cell, a roll cage, a rear lip spoiler, side-exit exhaust pipes, and chrome bumpers. This Montego race car is being offered in Mooresville, North Carolina with photos from the refurbishment, a DVD copy of television show AmeriCarna that features the car, and a bill of sale.
The bodywork received a bare-metal repaint in metallic purple with white stripes by Evernham’s shop, Big Iron Garage, in 2020 and is mounted to a chassis built by famed racer and fabricator Banjo Matthews. Various period sponsorship decals have been applied to the body along with hand-painted lettering and #75 decals on both doors. Additional equipment includes hood pins, a mesh front grill, rear lip spoiler, chrome bumpers, flared fenders, side-exit exhaust pipes, and metal headlight and taillight covers.
The gold-finished wheels are wrapped in yellow-letter Goodyear slicks, and braking is handled by drums at all four corners.
The stripped cabin has been powder coated black and houses a single black vinyl-upholstered seat as well as a multi-panel wide-angle rearview mirror and a padded roll cage with door bars. A fire extinguisher is mounted to the right of the driver.
A two-spoke steering wheel sits ahead of a custom black powder coated dashboard housing toggle switches for vehicle functions, a central 9k-rpm tachometer, and a suite of auxiliary Stewart Warner instrumentation monitoring oil pressure, coolant temperature, oil temperature, and fuel pressure. No odometer is fitted, thus total mileage is unknown.
The 351ci Ford Cleveland V8 features a Holley four-barrel carburetor, a Bud Moore intake manifold, a fuel cell, and stainless-steel braided fuel lines.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through four-speed manual transmission, and additional underbody photos are provided in the gallery below.
Photos from the 2020 cosmetic refurbishment are included in the sale.

Shelby Can-Am Prototype. Only survivor of two!
This is the surviving 'prototype' of the Carroll Shelby Can-Am from his 1990 efforts. Originally there were two prototypes, this is the only one left, the other was destroyed. This was an attempt by Carroll to make a fun competitive race class. This car is powered by a Dodge V6. Very easy to drive, handles very well! Again, the only prototype in existence as a part of the Carroll Shelby legacy! Tested by Carroll, he signed the logbook cover. Also tested by John Morton. John was nice enough to sign a photo for my seller, and so for the new owner. Also, the picture of the two guys in the pits is the famous Peter Brock signing the body of the car he designed. Big thanks to Peter and Gayle! The car was restored by the Shelby Can-Am keeper of the keys Robert Johnston as original. The car has only seen one track day since the restoration at Buttonwillow in 2019, the day Peter signed the body. The seller had updated the car with a new fire system and new belts to pass tech with VARA. 230hp makes this a quick fun race car, a "one of one". Comes with all paperwork, original crew shirt, signed photo by John and more collectibles for this either museum piece or fun at the track! A beautiful and fun part of Shelby history!

Lola T300 HU15 Horst Kroll - Restored @ $120K
Here is the Lola T300 F5000 of Horst Kroll HU15. At one time run as a Frisbee center-seat Can-Am entry! HUGE history on this chassis. Waiting for a few more details and pictures and list price. Restoration new and cost at $120k.
Lola T300 Hu-15 was purchased in 2007.
The Horst Kroll T300 HU-15 had been converted to the very successful Kroll’s Can-Am Frisbee.
The V-Web attached article gives a fuller history on the T300 and its successes.
After having new Can-Am body moulds made I decided that I preferred the F5000 and so I commenced returning the car to its original LolaT300 Hu-15.
This started the long love affair with this beautiful very fast nimble car.
Last year I completed a ground up restoration commencing with having the tub rebuilt by Marc Bahner in the USA.
The detail of the rebuild extend from sand bent extractors to Lola factory body.
Rebuilt includes every detail right down to the original color and decals.
Receipts for over $120k spent on the car with every component rebuilt or replaced by Australia’s foremost race car restorer and race preparer.
The is a package of spares available including two sets of original Lola wheels, gears, shocks, springs, some body mould and spare front nose and wings.
Since the rebuild, due to Covid the car has dyno time only. Exceptional!

1985 Corvette tube frame Trans Am, IMSA car
This car was built in 1984/1985. Shop built chassis with a full time helper that had experience building with another Vette racer from California. I also had another engineer from racing that helped. Corvette shop had done ½ frame mods on other race cars, mine and others. The frame is very solid, fully triangulated and well engineered. The Engine block is a solidifying member of the front end. I have complete files on every part purchased that is on the car. Differential, Transmission, MSD ignition, gauges, cooling, alternator, seat, seat belts, Wipers, wiper motor, shock absorbers/Koni double adjustable coil overs, you name it. Records are all there. Big files. Also have an album of pictures of the construction, maybe 50 or 100. 14 BBS wheels and about 20 tires, including 4 rain tires.
Last raced with SOVREN in about 2008. Fresh engine with one race, dynoed at 648 Hp. New 5 speed trans, Fresh Frankland quik change diff., Koni coil overs with 5 link rear suspension, huge brakes and 16-inch BBS wheels. New fuel cell. Huge number of spares. Haulmark 24’ trailer available.
This car has raced at many of the famous racetracks in the US and Canada, including the Long Beach Grand Prix.
**The deal from my seller is that he admits he made the mistake of putting this Vette up, for the last 4 years without being soaked with oil. So, it might be seized. At full price he will take it out and completely rebuild it, already has the hot internals. He of course will put in what you want but likely its already there! OUR client has been racing AND winning since the 1960's (pic of his old car attached). He has owned a Corvette race/repair shop for decades, it will be a front running car. Pics are inside the trailer, but truly a beautiful car all `shined up, very fast!

1965 Triumph Spitfire
SVRA Gold Medallion very well sorted Triumph Spitfire from a collection!
Completely original, right down to the red and white paint job, the car carries with it a few trick parts and a lot of questions. The first noticeable link to greatness lies under the hood, a massive pair of Weber 40DCOE carburetors. These bolt up to a specially made 11-stud, 8-port Le Mans-spec head, only 20 of which were reportedly manufactured. With such limited numbers, it makes sense that only very select Spitfires were destined to have this works component. The Spitfire also came from the factory with a Salisbury limited slip differential and a GT6 transmission. This Mk II is a rarity since it was never a road-going car. Its destiny was the track and it has been successfully raced at places like the Monterey Histories and Willow Spring. There are documented timesheets with lap times of 1:50 at Willow—not bad for a vehicle so low on horsepower. Comes with a Hardtop! Logbooks and ready to go! Very competent Group 2 racer!

The history of motorsport is filled with “firsts” and “bests,” but few Chrysler cars carry a heritage like this one. The Charger Daytonas of 1969 took race wins, but this example was the very first car ever to officially top 200 MPH on a closed course circuit. On March 24, 1970, at the recently opened Alabama International Motor Speedway (AIMS) in Talladega, factory driver Buddy Baker set an official lap speed of 200.447 MPH with it. That, however, is just the start of its history.
A Chrysler “Development Car,” this Dodge carries Serial No. DC-93. Rebuilt by Nichels Engineering from a Charger 500 press car, assembly of this as an aero test car was overseen at the company’s “Woodward Garage” race shop by Bob Tarozzi at the direction of Larry Rathgeb just as Charger Daytona development was getting underway. Known in test documentation as the “blue car” and authenticated by Chrysler Racing Engineer George M. Wallace on April 7, 2001, it was first driven by Paul Goldsmith in the 1969 Daytona 500 as a Charger 500 model before being converted to test use. Driven as No. 88, Charlie Glotzbach sat on the pole for the inaugural Talladega 500 in September 1969 in DC-93, qualifying at 199.446 MPH, itself a world record. As a result, Baker was tagged to drive DC-93 to deliberately attempt to top the 200 MPH barrier six months later at the same track during a private test.
Among the other drivers of DC-93 are Bobby Allison, Dan Gurney, Bobby Isaac and James Hylton, but the proven chassis was longest-used by Iowa racer Don White in USAC Stock Car competition, driven for several seasons before retiring it in the mid-1970s. After extensive research, historian Greg Kwiatkowski located the car and purchased it from White in 1998. Eventually, the result was a comprehensive multiyear restoration by Ray Evernham and his team in Mooresville, North Carolina, to what you see here.
A note of importance: DC-93 was in use when the first tests of the actual Daytona Charger aero package took place at the company’s Chelsea Proving Grounds in July 1969, attaining Wallace’s documented 205 MPH. The Daytona package on DC-93 resulted in a zero-lift vehicle with a drag coefficient of 0.29, and further testing resulted in many innovations used on futureChrysler circle track vehicles. This included directional fins to direct airflow to the radiator, underbody paneling from the nose to the K-frame for better aerodynamics, Chrysler’s first use of a dry sump in NASCAR, engine bars added from the shock towers to the firewall for chassis stiffening, and refined cowl air induction though the base of the windshield.
Exterior aero enhancements by Chrysler Engineering added a body rake to the chassis by 1.5 degrees and flared quarter panels in front of the rear tires for better aerodynamics, the steering gear attached for better handling and more speed, and the entire front end “drooped” forward of the front tires for less drag. Inside is the race-based interior, the square fuel tubing seen on the right-side floor pan that was originally used to attach temporary data recording equipment, and an innovative rear axle cooler for better efficiency.
Painstakingly researched before lifting a wrench, this accurate restoration includes a 426/575 HP Hemi EX-144 V-8 engine complete with a Holley Dominator carburetor on a bathtub Hemi intake, the car’s “Put a Dodge in your garage” front air plate and period speed parts. It is backed by a 4-speed manual transmission, and the car has period-correct body parts, paint, racing wheels and a Letter of Authenticity from George M. Wallace verifying the provenance of DC-93.
A truer icon on superspeedway development and success would be difficult to find. It was used to develop the first Charger Daytona, attended the controversial first Talladega superspeedway event, topped the 200 MPH record and was then hidden for decades—this is the one and only DC-93 No. 88.

This 1964 AC Cobra was originally built as a show chassis for Shelby American in order to showcase the model’s underpinnings. It was sent in 1965 to Cal Automotive, a Shelby subcontractor, where a Ford T-bucket body was installed. The car was then registered for street use, and later in the mid-1990s was fitted with a hand-formed aluminum Cobra body by Kimmins Custom Fabrication of Lake Havasu City, Arizona. After being raced in the late-1990s, it received a refresh and was assigned chassis number COB5998. The current owner acquired the car in 2011 and subsequently commissioned Cobra Automotive of Wallingford, Connecticut to perform a mechanical and cosmetic refurbishment, which included rebuilding the Weber-carbureted289ci V8. A T-10 four-speed manual transmission was also installed along with a Tilton racing clutch, Hurst Super Shifter, Girling master cylinder, Penske racing shocks, and more. The car was invited to and participated in the 50th annual Cobra Reunion, held in Monterey, California in 2013. It is listed in the SAAC Registry as outlined below and is titled as a 1964 Ford, though in race configuration would be difficult to drive on the street. The car is now offered with spare parts, refurbishment documentation, period photos, historical paperwork, and a clean California title. Visited this last Friday 7/2, so clean it's just amazing.
