Need A Rally Car for the 2015 Great Race?

Longtime Great Racer Jim Boggs has what he believes is the perfect future rally car for someone. It’s a 1929 Ford Model A Tudor sedan with a late 1940’s Flathead V8. Jim says the car sits on a new 1928-31 boxed frame and that the engine code is a 59A, which makes it a 1946-48. He is asking $13,000. If anyone is interested, give Jim a call on his cell at 843-270-7149.

Corky Rutledge and his son-in-law Ryan Dressler won the event in their 1929 Ford Model A pickup.

The Hemmings Motor News Great Race presented by Hagerty has set all kinds of records the last four years, and Oct. 1 it surpassed 80 entries for the 2015 trek along Route 66. That is the earliest date the Great Race has ever hit 80 entries.

That leaves less than 20 spots for the event which will start in Kirkwood, Missouri, on Saturday, June 20. “Everyone knows we only take 100 cars because it is a rally and the cars are competing a minute apart which spreads out the field almost two hours,” director Jeff Stumb said. “Once we announced the route the checks started pouring in because no one wanted to miss Route 66,” he said. “It’s two bucket list items that can get crossed off at the same time.” X-Cup entries for high school and college teams are not counted toward the grand total.
