I’ve been following this unique handbuilt fiberglass 1963 Shirdlu H-Mod racer for a while on the H-Mod mailing list, and now I see it’s up for sale on Hemmings.com. H-Mods, which rarely followed any sort of pattern and exhibited a wide variety of engineering solutions (and powertrain selections) to get the most out of 750 cubic centimeters, are fast becoming popular for those reasons and for their diminutive size – you can fit more of them in the space taken up by larger cars! From the seller’s description:
This is an unrestored example from the H modified period. Built by three friends, Frazier Sibbald, an industrial engineer,George Olsen,boat builder/surf board maker,and Howard Bliss.
The car was built using a 700cc sports coupe motor.It has Le Grand suspension pieces. The car weighs 635 lbs. It was very developed and very fast when it ran. It was driven by Frazier Sibbald and raced in the SCCA National Championships at Riverside in 1966 where he finished 5th in class.
After two years ,Frazier lost interest in racing after a friend died in a racing accident. The car was resurrected by Glade H Miller and eventually sold to Bruce Mc Caw in 2006. Mark Sange bought the car in 2009 and has raced it 3 times, the last time in the HMSA Portland Historics July 2010. The car comes with many spare parts, the original fibre glass body moulds and design drawings, history and paperwork.
