Butch Gilbert -- 1959
Butch Gilbert of Westley, CA, drove the
5300cc. 1959 Hagemann-Sutton Special to 22nd place. This large
and unusual-looking car has a strange history to match. It began
life as a Talbot Grand Prix car, acquired this body by SoCal fabricator
Jack Sutton and raced as a "Talbot Special" in Southern California in 1960,
powered by the 4500cc. straight-six Talbot GP engine.
The Talbot chassis was sold to be restored
as a bona-fide Talbot GP car.
The unique Sutton body then acquired a new chassis by Jack Hagemann and
