I purchased this vehicle in 2003 from Gary A. Wutke who was a collector and raced stock cars in the 70's with his best year being a national win in 1977. Mr. Wutke purchased the race car in Chicago in the early 80's from another collector who at this time has not been named.

This race car has a dashboard plaque indicating "Built by Chevrolet Brothers Mfg Co."
The car displays a Frontenac emblem on the radiator along with a AAA racing emblem and a Boyce Motometer radiator cap.

To my knowledge this race car is an authentic Fronty Ford race car built by Chevrolet Brothers. I will continue to update this web site as I research and verify the history of this important part of American racing history. Please feel free to contact me with any information or questions that you may have on this vehicle.
