Winfield High Viking Cars of the Fifties
Bill and Jim Bottorff with Jim's 35 Ford Project

Jim started this car pretty much from scratch. I don't think it had an engine. He put in what he late told a Kansas Sheriff was a "stock engine". After having chased Jim for some distance and loosing ground the Sheriff called ahead and had a road block set up. After getting Jim's explanation what kind of engine was under the hood, the Sheriff demanded that the hood be opened. There it was for all to see, a 1956 Chevy 265 Corvette engine. The Sheriff went nuts and Jim reiterated that indeed is was a STOCK Corvette engine just as he had said.
