Wow, where do I begin, I’ll start with this.
You are looking at a opportunity to own one of the most famous drag cars of all time ! This car was built by the mad man, “Jim Lytle” himself to regain his legacy and get his car out to the public’s eye once again.
Jim’s original “Big Al” was out of his reach being displayed in a museum in Florida, so he built this one to tour the Country.
This car is known as, “Big Al” #2 Jim did tour this car and had always dreamed of seeing it run the strip, unfortunatly Jim passed away in December of last year before it was finished to drive.
The new owner and caretaker of this famous car is offering it to someone who can finish it and then we can see it run in Jims memory.
There is still small items to complete, such as.
clutch, wiring, carburation, oil & water tanks to be hooked up.
It would be worth the effort to see this run the strip ! Jim stated this was a very low hour engine and ready to run after hooking up the needs as discribed.
These Allison 1710 V12 engines are becoming quite scarce due to use of them in racing.
We are going to set the opening bid at the engine cost and let the “legacy” take it from there.
If you really want to see more about this exciting car check it out on the internet, it is a very known car.
Search ” Jim Lytle” or “Big Al” and you will see this very car ! Talk about a great display item in a Museum or take it to the race track and show it off, it’s ready for that right now ! This car will be diplayed at the upcoming “Famoso” race track in Bakersfield this weekend.
Then it will be listed on the internet further, we just started here to get the ball rolling.
This car is, California racing history ! Included will be posters and paperwork Jim left with the car.
NOTE, This car is not running or drivable at this time, it will be sold as-is, the new owner will receive a “bill of sale” only.
This car is listed as a “private auction” so bidders will not be disclosed to public.
I am listing this car for a friend, I am not the owner of this car.
We do have a enclosed trailer for the car at a extra cost option, we can also deliver the car with fuel costs and food, (if arranged) none of these options are included in this auction at the closing price.
Please forward questions to Rodney @ 602-909-1415.
Please only serious calls about purchasing, we know this car is famous and have already heard most of the stories.
Don’t pass this up, anyone can bid and own this awesome car ! The car will be in Famoso raceway today ( 10/19 Friday & 10/20 Saturday) in Bakerfield for display, come and see us and enjoy the other awesome cars !! See Racing history in person !!! Thank you and good luck bidding !!!!
