The Arizona Hard Chrome V-4 engine completed!
As regular visitor you have followed and seen the photos of the restoration of Bud Trainor’s Arizona Hard Chrome midget that was driven through the years by drivers that included Bobby and Al Unser, and Paul Jones. If you are a first time visitor, please check the archive for previous stories.
When we last left Ron Trainor (Bud’s son) on the restoration of the V-4 midget engine he had to order new injector stacks, finish little things such as fittings and hoses, breathers, and mount the oil filter.
We are honored that Ron has allowed The Checkered Past to show off the latest photos of the completed engine ready for installation in the car. Compare the completed restoration to the black & white photo of the engine when the car first debuted. Ron and his crew at Arizona Hard Chrome did a great job!
