If the car looks familiar it should. All you have to do is dig out your copy of the October 1951 issue of Hot Rod Magazine to see Bob Roundwaite’s chopped Ford gracing the cover. At Bonneville that year the car ran in Class C Modified Coupe powered by a 1946 Mercury flathead V8 and was gunning for the Pierson Brothers class record of 149.005 mph At the end of the day, the car ran 154.905 mph but had to settle for a third in class behind Dawson Hadley at 164.223 mph and Hartelt-Leon at 158.450 mph. Hadley went home with a new record at 160.132 mph. For 1952 they renamed the Modified Coupe class name to Competition Coupe. Rex Burnette used this shot as reference material for one of his famous cutaway drawings of the car.
