Bryan Osgood came to the Port Royal, Pa. speedway in 1962 with this unique New York-style super modified. Bryan and his brother Vern owned Osgood Motor Co. in Elmira NY.
This car was built by Maynard Bodine of the Bodine racing family. Maynard was an uncle to Jeff, Brett and Todd Bodine. Jeff spent many nights in 1962 and 63 in the pits with the Osgood brothers. The New Yorkers referred to these cars as June Bugs. They were the chassis to beat in Southern NY. Super modified racing in the early 60ís
Bryan Osgood won four feature events in 1962 at Port Royal in this car. The car had very high frame rails and looked heavy. It had Chrysler torsion bar suspension on the read and handled exceptionally well. It was powered by a 327 chevy.

Thanks to Bob P. for the historical side and technical information on the original race car. I am always curious to learn how some race cars were built even if Supermodifieds, Sprint Cars an Midgets were not my kind of race cars, but mechanically it is always interesting to learn how they have been crafted.

Anyway, it is a very well built project, no doubt about it. I also like the race wheels and tires.
