Zero time on just finished professional bare frame restoration w/new everything or rebuilt original. Steel cockpit framework, crack tested Bobsy uprights and Bobsy polished wheels, dyno time only on Ivey 1600 w/twin Webbers, Mk5 trans. Absolutely a stunning car ready for show or track – none better.
The car was built in '64 and ran w/a 1700 Carrera 4 motor on the east coast by Millard Ripley and Charlie Kurtz (Aug '64 Competition Press article). Next owned by Ted Tidwell (GA) and run with a 2L 904 motor per a for sale add in Competition Press. Next owned by Terry Methaney and run with the Porshe 2L. Next to Noah Lacona (IA) who sent it back to Mong to be converted to an HRE (Gus Hutchinson Racing Engines) 1300 Twin Cam engine and run as CSR in the 70's. Then Brandt, Hunter, Rickle, Beuter, and then Don Blenderman in '87. Don (owner of Speedstar, Inc. in Houston, Texas) did a bare frame restoration and sold it to the current owner, David Marx in '05. Don's shop had done a previous frame up SR3 restoration and currently runs an Afla-powered SR3. David got out of vintage racing and sold his Merlyn 11A and put the Bobsy on the market. It has never been run. A super nice car that can't be duplicated for his asking price.
