from Jim: I can add a little more confusion to the mix referring to the discussion on
the #44 coupe on page:
I have attached a copy of a Lloyd King photo dated October 1964 that shows Toby Tobias at the wheel. The car certainly looks like the Hanchick & Lerch paint scheme. I bought the photo years ago from Mr. King, probably at his concession stand at Williams Grove.
Anyway, I pulled out the 1964 Langhorne program and sure enough. There is Toby listed as a guaranteed starter in the Sterling Lerch #44 1937 Chevy coupe powered by a 1960 Pontiac. The car in your pic (on the link above) is a 37 Ford so it is either a different year than 1964 or maybe Toby's back up for that race.
Sometimes this stuff is really hard to track down unless you get a participant involved in the discussion. Hope this helps??
Best Regards -

But, it's such a great photo that we wanted to give it it's own place in the Vault.

|11/18/07||3-Wide||I think Jim is referring to the car in the link provided being a Ford... The car above looks like a 37 Chevy from what I've been told from you guys that roamed the Earth when they were plentiful!|
|12/19/07||wpaw||That car Toby is in is a 1937 Chevy. It sat for years in a small scrap
yard near Hanchicks place for years. Sometime in the late eighties the car was restored. I
saw it at an Allentown, PA car show. I don't know who ownes it but it is still around. It
also was driven by Bill Deskovich and Bing Metz. Bill put it throught the wall in a race
at Harmony and that was the last time it saw competiton.
Originally it was yellow and red with the number 07 on it. I don't recall who drove it under that combination. It also sat for years in a garage in Phillipsburg, NJ. I think a fellow named Jim Wallman had it. I believe the photo is at Langhorne aorund 1964.
