1968 Dirt Champ Car

This 1968 Dirt Champ Car was built by Grant King in Indianapolis (only a rolling chassis). It was a back-up car and was never need nor finished and went up in the rafters at Grant King's shop. When Roger McCluskey started racing with Clint Brawner as mechanic, the car went to Clint Brawner's shop in Phoenix. Before McCluskey could run the car, the rules changed to narrower torsion bars and again, the rolling chassis stayed idle at Brawner's shop.
