Awesome model and picture of the original. Davey Brown wrenched that car and it was during the time Paxton drove the #1 brown Ford for Ree Smith. They had a few great races against each other at Susky and Lincoln.

Okay GOSHOW and 1080, here is one for your memories. Do you remember Bobby Gerhart in this No. 2? It is from 1965. Gerhart drove Baby Bonney a No. 2. Was this a replacement to Baby Bonney? The photo is from Selinsgrove. I have no details on this car at all. Thanks - Steve Bubb

Yes...this was the "new" Baby Bonny....I remember it! 1965! It also had a big Pontiac motor in it.

The only place I remember seeing it was at Selinsgrove with Gerhart driving...

It didn't run very well compared to the old one which had some success for a few years.

You need to Talk to Ben Woodring(builds super sportsman cars). His dad owned & built the Baby Bonney cars. I use to ride my bicycle down to their shop. Thats how I met Ben.
