One of my favourite dry lake roadsters is Ray Brown's '27 T, probably because he raced against the Spurgin/Giovanine roadster but also it was one of the first rear engine T roadsters. Rear engined T roadsters would go on & dominate the modified roadster class right up to '59.
Ray's roadster ran a couple rare parts that are even rarer than the V8-60 Eddie Meyer heads and intake. These rarer than rare parts are a Sowers in/out gearbox and a Sowers crank driven water pump. If anyone has info or literature regarding Sowers speed parts please leave a comment below as I would really like to learn more about them.
