Stromberg Carburetor – The Choice For Remington Lakester Recreation
Bonneville Salt Flats: Race Car Recreation
Stromberg headquarters—Stromberg is pleased to announce their valued participation in the recreation of Phil Remington’s stunning 1941 lakester.
Stromberg is proud to announce their participation in the recent unveiling of the recreation of Phil Remington’s 1941 lakester.
Unveiled at a special party honoring Phil, who will be 90 this year, at the NHRA Museum in Pomona during LA Roadster weekend, the blue roadster was an exact recreation by Burton, Michigan’s Dan Webb. Webb hosted the party for 400 of Phil’s closest friends, including Dan Gurney, Stu Hilborn, and more.
Built in 1941 and raced at the lakes from 1946-1948, the roadster consistently ran over 130 MPH running a 21 stud Ford flathead fed by two Stromberg 97 carburetors. As Dan Webb wanted this to be a perfect recreation of the beautiful lakester, he needed to look no further than our reissue of the winning Stromberg 97.
Though the new Stromberg 97 looks exactly like it did almost 70 years ago when Phil chose them on his ground-breaking race car, internal improvements have been made to eliminate leaking, warping of the body and other problems that racers and hot rodders faced. Now, it’s the perfect choice in more ways than one.
Congratulations to Phil Remington and Dan Webb for creating and recreating one of the greats from hot rodding’s past. We’re proud to be a small part of it.
