Butch Gilbert -- 1959 Hagemann-Sutton Special

Gilbert finished 3rd in this hybrid car with a fascinating history.  It actually started life as a rebodied Talbot-Lago T26 Grand Prix car, then was separated from this beautiful custom bodywork crafted by Jack Sutton when the Talbot chassis was restored to its Grand Prix configuration. 

The body shown here was then mounted on a Scarab-like Special's chassis and the car returned to the racing wars.  All to the good -- we get to see this beautiful & interesting Special out on the racetrack!
