My Cannonball Baker Racer!

Cannonball Baker Racer

43 Wilson Street, Rockland, Maryland 02370

My Cannonball Baker Racer is a 1936, with its Briggs & Stratton Model H engine that I was able to rebuild with help from Irving Bacon of Hanover, Massachusetts, a subscriber to this magazine. Irving passed away November 16, at the age of 79, from leukemia. He was a good person, always willing to help a fellow man.

I have a need for more information on this racer, such as the number produced, how many exist, and if parts or clubs are available. Also, I need literature, or whatever information is obtainable on these racers. I sure hope someone out there will be able to help me out on this score.

I also have one of these that my wife had when she was a kid and have been trying to restore it... I finally found a a fellow in Louisville Ky who told me what it was and he had 2 of them and owned 2 more before that... He said that he knew of 11 total including ours... Don't know how many was made... They was another little car that is almost identical to the Cannonball Baker that was sold by Pop Dryer... I am missing several parts so due to that and health problems ours is a work in progress... Anyone have any parts or want to sell theirs I would be interested... I will be glad to recieve more or share my info with anyone... This is the first time on this website so I don't know how we can do that... I would like to learn more about the little car... Thanks, Tal
