|Historian Ron Cummings on Ol' Yaller
"Ol' Yaller VII was sold as a bare rolling
chassis to Don Kirby, a driver in northern New York state. He installed
some sort of a body and a Chevrolet motor. The car was raced in east
coast events as "Ol' Yaller VII". Max, at the time, claimed no knowledge
of the car because it was sold only as a chassis.
According to Reagan Rulau, Brock Yates
and some friends later installed an Ambro plastic body that looks like
a Birdcage Maserati. The car now races in that configuration."
I located this ad for "Old Yaller VII"
that appeared in Competition Press Oct. 27, 1962 Vol. 9
"OLD YALLER Mk 7. Latest car built
by Max Balchowsky. Corvette 327 fuel- injected engine completely
rebuilt. New paint, concours condition, over $8000 invested.
Don Kirby, Dreamland Park, Rochester 22, N. Y."
