1956 Hillegass Sprint Race Car 1956 Hillegass Sprint Car

Description:

STK 2950 1956 Hillegass Sprint Car Hiram Hillegass began building racecars in 1919 and was recognized as one of the foremost builders of 'single-seat' racecars. He was elected to the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame in 1997. This innovative Hillegass Sprint Car was developed in the late '40s and utilized a frame constructed of large diameter high strength steel tubing as an alternative to repurposed production car frames. Our National award-winning Hillegass Sprint car is said to be 'tube-type frame #6' built in 1949 for Frank Anfuso of Bethlehem, PA, the owner of Highway Auto Body. Total restoration to '1956 race configuration' was done by Gene Weaber and was completed in 1997. Our stunning sprint car has been part of the Dennis Carpenter collection for many years. From a history standpoint, the car won 99 feature races, the 1951 NARA Championship and four URC Championships. One of the former drivers that campaigned this car was said to be Mario Andretti. The body 'tub' is all-metal as is the hood/nose. It has been professionally hand-lettered with period correct numbers and pin-stripping. Inside this interior is classic racer, plus a nicely upholstered seat in rolled-and-pleated red vinyl. The dash mounts the speedometer, tachometer and water temp gauges. A time-honored racing wheel, chopped windshield and torque tube w/enclosed driveshaft complete the functional interior package. Power is furnished by a Ford Thunderbird 312ci 'Y block' V8 that is fitted with an Edelbrock tri-power intake, Stromberg carburetors and custom headers. Behind the 312 sits a one-speed gearbox and differential that houses quick-change gearing. The electrical system is 12-volt and a manual pump, operated with your left hand, delivers fuel. Like most sprint cars, you must 'push-to-start' this beast. Brakes are rear-wheel hydraulic with huge drums and the suspension utilizes traditional front/rear radius rods. Period correct magnesium knock-off wheels mount old-school racing tires. This beautiful Hillegass Sprint car will be a classic addition to someone's garage. It is sold on a Bill of Sale. ALL VEHICLES SOLD ""AS IS"".
