1965-66 VINTAGE Genie Ford exDave Ridenour
Group 7 race car Calif USRRC Can-Am
to acquire Dave Ridenours Genie/Ford USRRC Can Am Group 7 body. Group 7 cars from that period are highly sought after.
This is one of many of my cars, that since turning 71, my family has been encouraging me to sell ,
and so I AM MOTIVATED To SELL.
Dave Ridenour was a So Cal roadracer during the early 60's, and was the owner / driver of a Huffaker Genie with Olds V8 then Ford V8.
Dave had the foresight to recognize the coming of the aero Coupes in Group7 ( ala Porsche 917, McClarenGT, etc), and during the 65/66 Winter he rebodied his Mk8 Genie/Ford with this beautiful custom coupe body, the only one of it's kind.
Unfortunately, Dave was killed in a race accident in July 1966
His wife sold the car, and it was owned and raced on the West Coast, until eventually the coupe body was removed, and an open-cockpit Genie body installed.
This body has been in our shop for many years, awaiting a new chassis. It is in very good condition, and in primer ready for completion.
The Genie/Ford logo on the hood was originally hand painted, and was carefully retained during refinishing
The car was originally orange, then repainted dark blue by a subsequent owner
Windshield is an easily sourced 63-67 Corvette
the rear screen was plexiglass.
Copies of numerous papers and early pictures, including the wife's advertisement of it for sale, are included, as well as various amounts of pictures, etc, regarding Genie chassis
With the 289 Ford V8, I have been told by one of the owners,
that the car was run at Bonnevile in excess of 200 mph.
As always, The body is for sale at the shop,
