Race Cars for sale

This historic 1955 Johnson and Shipley B-Lakester red #48-B belly-tank racer holds a number of Bonneville National Speed Trials land speed records such as the 1963 B-Lakester 255.501 MPH (taken from Tom Beatty, car #100B) and 1964 A-Lakester at 263.350 MPH. Famed land speed racer Don Johnson piloted the car and partner Jeff Shipley took care of the motor and car. The car was bought from legendary racer Roy Fjasted, who owned and raced the car until 1961. The car is one of three cars built by Car Craft Machine and one of a handful of early belly-tank racers known to exist. Car #28 is usually in the Petersen Automotive Museum. Car #100B sold at Monterey 2007 for $440,000 USD. This remaining car has been in a private collection since 1991. The body is made from a P-51 Mustang drop tank. The car has a correct 331 CID Chrysler hemi V-8 motor with 6-71 GMC supercharger and 2 port Hilborn fuel injection. Power is delivered to a Gilmor in-and-out box and quick-change rear end. The car has been featured in numerous publications from 1963 to 1999. The 48-B was shown by invitation at Bonneville in 1998. The car is a restored rolling display and of course needs to be rebuild mechanically to race again. It is a fully-documented car and comes with the Bonnieville B trophy, documentation and photo history. For any serious race car collector or museum, this is a must-have one-of-a-kind classic Lakester. Please call me at (406) 565-5277 for details.

For sale $500,000 USD.
