Jim Bottorff's 1935 Ford
According to Bill Bottorff, Jim Bottorff equipped this old 1935 Ford with a "stock engine", "that was at least what he told the Kansas Sheriff. After having chased Jim for some distance and loosing ground the Sheriff called ahead and had a road block set up. After getting Jim's explanation of what kind of engine was under the hood, the Sheriff demanded that the hood be opened. There it was for all to see, a 1956 Chevrolet 265 Corvette engine. The Sheriff went nuts and Jim reiterated that indeed it was a STOCK Corvette engine just as he said".
