Historic DB-2 restoration

Carl Correll has joined our company, and is currently working on a complete rebuild of a 1984 Swift DB-2.  This car was the first DB-2 built, and it finished 3rd in it’s first appearance at the 1984 Runoffs with Steve Shelton driving.

Here’s the “before” picture.  The car complete ready for it’s makeover…

The engine was sent off to Ivey Engines for rebuilding, while the gearbox was disasembled and inspected.

Carl will be replacing the ring & pinion, a worn-out shift finger, and putting in new seals and bearings.

If you’ve got a mechanical project that’s just a bit more than you’re ready to do yourself at home, consider bringing it to Veracity Racing Data.  We can help with maintenance, upgrades or a complete restoration.   With Carl’s gearbox expertise, we can now handle those gearbox projects.   We will also be adding shock testing and service to our offerings.
