"SR0" Prototype

Tom Miller, the current owner of this car, reports that "Jerry Mong personally verified that this is the first car he ever built back in 1958. This predates the Bobsy Twins and the SR1."

Jerry Mong told Tom that it's him in the car, in the photo on the right, at Cumberland Raceway in either 1958 or 1959. Jerry also did the Mansfield Hill Climb with the car.

Dolf Battifarano bought it from Ronnie Mucklow in 1969, and raced it with Dick Hyland at the hill climbs at Hobo Hill. The car was then sold to Dennis Dutcher.

Tom Miller is looking for any history on the car, especially for the period from 1960 to 1971.
