Ray Brown Roadster

Courtesy Peterson Automotive Museum:
In 1945 and early 1946, 17-year-old Ray Brown built this roadster while working for Eddie Meyer Engineering Company in Hollywood, California. He painted the hot rod Sherwood Green, a distinctive 1946 Buick color. In 1948 Ray sold the car, after which it was put in dry storage for nearly 40 years. In 1991 it was discovered in untouched original condition, complete with eleven timing tags. Following a ground-up restoration that returned the car to its original racing configuration, it has won multiple awards.
