Dave Seely -- 1959 Leonard Kellison Special-Ford

Your webmaster saw this car raced in Northern California in 1962 with flathead Ford V8 power.  It was driven by its builder, the bearded and idiosyncratic Tom Leonard.  Seely finished 30th in what was a shakedown run for the recently restored, now Ford "Y-Block" powered car.

From historic racer Dave Seely:    (4-20-06)

"The Leonard car has an early Kellison J4 roadster body. I substantiated 
this with Jim Kellison before he died by email and telephone. Also, the 
car ran a Ford V-8 early on, but by this time was running the y-block 
according to a friend of Tom Leonard's. I am hoping to get more 
information on the history of this car. 

Please feel free to put my contact information on your website for any lurkers that might have some info on this car.  We have pieces to the puzzle but not much else."
