Maybe with Wolfram’s passing is why those pictures were taken. I’d assume that’s Wolframs garage. I think he lived in Riverside with Hartmut living in the Ramona area. I hope something good happens with the car and it’s restored and kept just as we see it in that garage.Klawitters still own it
That engine photo is in a Jeep that was set up for the drag strip. It was a CJ6. I kind of remember seeing it run side draft Webers and at one time injectors. I think it had a B&M Hydrostick. It ran at Carlsbad regularly, but probably all the other strips that were open in the mid to late 1960s. This was 50 years ago so please don't quote me.Loving this thread. Building some sort of rail that could do the baja, as built, back when. Now wondering if I'll luck into an actual vintage race driven vehicle. Some of the old ones on here are more than enough for trail running.
AnywayI have an old engine, came as a twofer during a vintage gladiator resto.
So what I need is help.
Anyone know of anything, picture, napkin drawing, parts list, for the Chuchua built Tornado 230 OHC?
Not sure if it raced, but it was the best version of the engine, american southwest, baja style. I'm gonna tribute it.
Heres what I'm after
