The Gasser Tribute Car was built for all the past drivers, owners and fans that truly "Loved" these kinds of cars and to enjoy them once again! Come see us at the races and say "Hello"

Harold and Dels name on car with homemade fuel injector. Note shortened traction bar from earlier years. That's about the length we have them today. The earlier bars were much longer.
This page is a work in progress. I'll get it finished someday!!! Del Wiesner, 10/01/08 July 2015, seven years later I am back at it. Maybe I'll get it closer to finished! Del W Sept.5 2015 still at it! Still at it Nov.11 2015
Bobby is building a complete new rear deck lid from aluminum. He threw the fiberglass one in the junk pile. Come to think about it, he threw a lot of things in the junk pile.
Great! Almost ready to run. All we need now is tires.
Does this look like the Moon Rover? Chassis ready for body.
Wow! We still have a long way to go. Shift tower seen inside car was abandoned for a shifter on the column. The original car had a PowerGlide shifter on the column for the Hydro Matic. So the new car had to have a column shift also!

Display at local car shows and a short history of the car!!
Here we have the engine mounted and the front end hinges completed. Bobby is starting on the aluminum work. There is no wood or composite board in this project. It is all metal work. All the fiberglass firewall, floor, fender wells, and trunk lid were discarded because it was all too heavy or poorly done.
Here we’re getting the feel where we want the steering and the seats located. Note: the roll cage had to be constructed with the body off the car. That’s why the entire fiberglass floor pan was removed. Once the cage was completed and welded properly, then the body could be fit down over the roll cage. We had the body on and off many times before completion.
Prepping body parts for paint. Note: frame and roll cage in background.
Now, this is the look we are trying to get!

Del at the World of Wheels auto show in Phoenix, AZ, Jan 2008, where the car won best of class and best restored engine.
What is it??? Oh, I see a Willys hood, so it still must be the same car we’ve been working on. I was beginning to wonder about this time… “What is this thing!!”
It’s starting to look like a Gasser!
Every time we did this, my heart skipped a beat. We had the body off the frame many times during construction. Note body hanging over roll cage.
The Heartbeat of the whole project: 1962 Oldsmobile Rocket 394 cu.in. + .030. Still run an old Isky 505C Magnum roller cam that was ground in the early 60's, with early G.M.diesel lifters.
Car with lettering. This is the same number we were assigned for the 1964 Winternationals in Pomona. We ran the same lettering for Indianapolis that year.
Man who did most of the work on this beautiful Supercharged Gasser.
Bobby Anderson , my hometown friend who grew up in Montrose, Co and now lives in Apache Junction Az.
Bobby Anderson, owner of "Sled Customs" in Apache Junction, Az. He is a man of many talents. Can do everything that is required to build and run a race car. If not for him the Seevers,Wiesner and Owens A/Gas Supercharged Willys would not be as remarkable a car as it is.
