Default Vintage USAC sprinter for sale

Check this out.. it's pretty cool..
1970's Vintage Sprint Car For Sale

Description:
The #54 Car USAC Sprint Car

This car has plenty of history. It was built in the 1970-1971 season. It first competed as the #49. It has been driven by two Indy 500 starters, Joe Saldana and Steve Chassey. It has also been driven by Charlie Masters, “Doc” Dawson”, Jerry Weeks, Jerry Poland, Larry Moore, Jim Dinsmoor and was last driven in competition by Bob East (Beast Chassis), in October 1978 at Winchester, Indiana.

I bought the car from the original owner and it sits all original, just as last raced, except for a few replaced hoses.

We haven’t run the car in about 7 years, the last time being the Winchester, Indiana, old-timers show.

A set of 4 dirt tires and the 4 asphalt tires that it last ran on are included with the purchase.

This is one of only a few all original cars from that era.

Some photo's of the #54 sprinter, from Gene Crucean and John John Mahoney's great sprint car pictorial's of the 70's. From the 1975 edition recapping the 1974 USAC national sprint car series.

and...

appears they repaired it. I'd like to have it sitting in my garage.
