Period Correct Gassers

Sunshine Express

Sonee Hall - Bristol, TN.


      This car is a recreation of the Anglia I raced in the 60’s and early 70’s. The body was located in Reading, PA where it was stored for many years after the top had been chopped and set-up for an early Chevy small block. I constructed the car using as many period-correct parts that I could locate. But, the car was built to be up-to-date with the present day safety regulations.


Charlotte Mahan is crew chief, co-constructor, pit crew, chief cook and bottle washer, etc…..


The car runs representing “Craft’s Garage” in Roanoke, VA.
