Lyn's 1923 T Roadster was put together in 1968 and run through 1983 when it was put into storage. It has recently been taken out of the mothballs and is being updated to get it up and running again.

It is a 1923 T Roadster with a 430 ci aluminum rod late style Hemi. Still has the B&M Clutch Flite, an Olds rearend, Hilborn on alcohol, and the paint job from 1970. It won Bristol (IHRA) in the mid 1970s as an A/SR and was runner up at a couple AHRA evens as an A/G or B/A.

Back in the days it would run a 9.55 @ 142. After its lengthy rest is has been running 5.9 @ 116 in the 1/8 mile and ran a 9.4 in the 1/4 mile last year on 5.38 gears (out of engine before the traps).

Lyn uses it locally with a number of school projects and has been helped by the good folks at Summit Racing, Federal Mogul, RCI and Goodyear. Got an old gasser or altered? Send Lyn a message!
