Below is Roger gates response to my inquiry.
And I quote: "If it was the car that Phil had it was basically a California Chasis Eng. car that we built at Don's shop (Tuttle - Daves dad). The car was painted somewhat like the Beebe & Mulligan T/F car by Phil & his partner @ Carters shop. It only had a shorty nose from the front of the engine about 3/4 feet long at the time. That car got rear ended on an open trailer & knocked off going down the Golden State freeway coming back from Orange County just after they got it & switched to the Jr Gas deal. RCS may have put a new front half on it as I was in graduate school right then & didn't have much time, but I thaught Don (Tuttle) fixed it, unless that was when his Parkenson's was real bad. If it is the car, it originally had a torsion bar rear suspension in it & will have two round tubes on the lower rails at the back for torsion arms that went forward. We put John Lombardo's Chrysler & Torqueflite in it to kill the world. It didn't work very well & went back to a solid Chrysler rear end & the Chevy Motor. That was a wierd feeling to sit in the seat & feel the suspension move under your legs. Anyway: I went to driving a fuel car about then for someone else because of everything going on. The last I heard of Phil he was on Vancouver Island & had a Top Alcohol car."
