Default Re: Malloy Special

Hello,

My name is Don Sommer. My grandfather and father owned Hoyt Machine Co. and the Special from 56-58. It was in the 56 race with Ed Elisian. The 57 race with Jimmy Reece who also drove it in the Race of Champions. It failed to qualify for the 58 race with Gene Hartley and was later wrecked at Daytona with Dempsey Wilson at the wheel.
It was my understanding that the car was scrapped. However I recently found it on the following website:
conceptcarz.com/vehicle/z15081/Kurtis-Kraft-500C
I'm a new member so I can't post an active link.
I would be interested any pictures related to the car or it's drivers. I have pictures that I would be happy to share.

Thanks
