Lot #371-1938 Chevrolet Race Car- According to reports and legend, this “ol' 88” was the first Chevrolet to win a Nascar sanctioned race and that was at Greenwood (SC) Fairgrounds Raceway on October 2, 1952 driven by Jesse Moore. Originally built by Wayne & Buddy Reid of Abbeville, SC, it mostly ran the Greenwood track in the '50's, reportedly placing top 3 in 28 of the 32 races it competed in. It did not do well on asphalt tracks as the suspension was too high. However, on the dirt tracks, it ran circles around the V-8 Ford's of the time.

Car was restored in 1992 and ran some vintage races, but has been in a collection in Saluda, South Carolina. Car starts, runs, and drives. It has a Serial number and a South Carolina title.

For more information about this rare vintage racer or the September 25 Auction, please call Tom Mack at 803-351-3695.
