Description for Other Makes GLASSPAR SPECIAL 1952

FIRST OFF THIS VEHICLE IS NOT A GLASSPAR G2. IT'S ALWAYS BEEN CALLED SOME TYPE OF GLASSPAR LIKE MODIFIED GLASSPAR G2 ORA 1952 GLASSPAR SPECIAL. THIS CAR ACCORDING TO ONE OF ITS LONG TIME OWNERS DEAN REMKEOF ONTARIO, CA. SAID HE PURCHASED THE CAR IN LA VERNE, CA IN 1971 WHERE THE CAR WAS SITTING IN A BACK YARD FOR YEARS. THIS OWNER ALSO CLAIMED THAT THE ORIGINAL OWNER AND BUILDER OF THE CAR WAS WARREN GERDES. MR GERDES WORKED FOR THE GLASSPAR CO. AND ALSO WAS THE RACE DRIVER OF THE FACTORY GLASSPAR. TO DATE I HAVEN'T COME ACCROSS ANY DOCUMENTATION PROVING ANY OF THIS. IF ANYBODY OUT THERE KNOWS THE HISTORY OF THIS CAR OR HAS PICTURES OF IT RACING PLEASE CONTACT ME. NEXT MR. REMKE SOLD THE GLASSPAR TO AN INDIVIDUAL IN ALTADENA, CA IN 1997. SOMEWHERE AROUND 2010 TO 2013 THE CAR LEFT CA. AND HAD 2 DIFFERENT OWNERS IN THE STATE OF ILLINOIS. I PURCHASED THE CARIN 2013 AND BROUGHT IT TO NEW JERSEY.THE ENGINE CASTING #3731548 WITH FI005E STAMPED ON THE FRONT PASSINGER SIDE OF THE ENGINE. THE HEADS ARE STAMPED #3731539 WITH A CASTING DATE OF J46. THE INTAKE MANIFOLD IS A PERIOD OFFENHAUSER WITH 3 ROCHESTER 2BBL CARBS.THE ENGINETURNS OVER AND APPEARS TO BE IN GOOD REBUILDABLE CONDITION. THE MALLORYMAGSPARK MAGNETO THAT WAS ON THE CAR IN THE DAY IS STILL WITH THE CAR. THE3 SPEED TRANS IS OUT OF A 1937 FORD AND HAS HAD A COMPLETE REBUILD WITH DOCUMENTATION. THE FRAME HAS BEEN COATED AND NEW BRAKE LINES INSTALLED. THE GAS TANK APPEARS TO HAVE BEENCLEANED AND REINSTALLED. THE HOOD HAS THE REMAINS OF FOUR LEATHER HOOD STRAPS. THE DASH HAS FULL STEWART WARNER INSTUMENTATION WITH A 160 MPH SPEEDOMETER.

THE FIBERGLASSBODY OF THE CAR HAS THE FLOOR MOLDED INTO THE BODY. I HAVE NEVER SEEN ONE DONE LIKE THIS. USUALLY THE BODY IS OPEN AND FITS ONTO THE CHASSIS WITH THE FLOORS BUILT IN. THE BODY ON THIS CAR WAS DONE BY SOMEONE WITH A HIGH LEVEL OF SKILL AND KNOWLEDGE. THE CARS PLEXI GLASSWRAP A ROUND WINDSHIELD IS LONG GONE BUT THE TRACK IS STILL THERE. I JUST PUT A SET OF NEW FIRESTONE 600X16 BLACKWALL ALL AROUND. THERE WERE NO SEATS WITH THE CAR. I PICKED UP A SET OF SMALL RACING SEATSTHAT WILL GO WITH THE CAR. THE RADIATOR IS OUT OF A 57 VETTE.
