Historic Print #16: City of Pasadena Streamliner at El Mirage (1949)

$ 20.00

We see Marvin Lee’s “City of Pasadena” at El Mirage in September 1949 getting the once-over from some S.C.T.A. inspectors. Class B Streamliner was fitted with a 1947 Chevrolet inline-6 displacing 247” that was fitted with a Wayne cylinder head and intake manifold. The car ran 154.63 mph to take a first in class. At the end of the year the team ended up fourth in the season championship. It was rebuilt into a real streamliner for Speedweek in 1950 with a body shape just like an aircraft wing. After a shakedown run at 195.652 mph, lap 2 was a disaster as the car took off at 210 mph plus and had a bad landing.
