(Photo by Jerry Lee McGuire) The Stallsworth boys built this gorgeous Modified
sedan as a tribute to their father Wayne. It features a lot of Wayne's main sponsors
from over the years and I believe was lettered up by Rick Losh.

Here is another of one of the great cars the great Wayne Stallsworth drove, Danny O'Connell's 55 Chev from 1969.

You would read about Stallsworth, Lehman, Pierce, Dechant, and Nicholson regularly.

The Stallsworth sedan was bright orange, a shade similar to the color on Allis-Chalmers tractors, with orange wheels and wide white slicks. It was really fast and louder than any car I had heard up to that time. The car ran Fenton headers and if you ever heard a Chevy 6 equipted wtih those, you know how loud they were. All it needed was a set of Olds Fiesta hub caps and it would have looked like somebody's street rod. I never forgot that car. Years later I bought the sedans successor the #52 coupe and even though they are not the same car it's an honor to own a car that Mr. Stallsworth owned.

Does anyone have photos of the #52 or Roger Webb's #54

Mike, that is a treasure trove! I'd have never known what a diverse racing career Wayne had, what a wheel man. Thank Randy Stallsworth for us, and thanks for posting this great stuff.

WOW! Great stuff and I'm sure most of this hasn't been viewed for years.

It's an honor to have it on ARM.
