The new Goldenrod book by author John Baechtel details the the restoration of Americas most famous land speed racing car. Built by the famous Summers Brothers who set and held the wheel driven, piston powered land speed record and held it for 45 years, they accomplished this 409 mph record feat with superior aerodynamics and the massive power of four methanol breathing Chrysler Hemi engines. This acclaimed work has been praised far and wide as the best book ever written about Bonneville racing and the World's Land Speed Record. It provides extensive coverage of the Summer's Brothers early record cars that were all Hemi powered. These included a variety of early roadster and the famous 300 mph Hemi Powered Pollywog. And it delivers a deep dive look at how the new 1964 Chrysler Race Hemis were modified to suit the trying conditions of Bonneville's legendary five mile dyno; fuel injected Race Hemis on methanol at wide open throttle for five miles running as fast as 425.99 mph. Here's a quick peek inside this landmark book.
