Hornet powered Jets
We've all seen pictures and heard stories of the Ike Smith 308 Jets. However, many years ago, I was told that the way that Ike Smith snookered the NHRA and the AHRA into passing them as legal for stock class racing was that he had a copy of an instruction document that was published by the Hudson Engineering Department on genuine Hudson Engr. letterhead, intended for dealer use, that had full instructions on how to modify the Jet body and chassis for the 308 . Does anyone have a copy of this paper or have any idea where to search for it? Is there an archive of Hudson Engineering files somewhere that could be researched? I'd love to see about how this was done and how to pass it by the NHRA stock specs. Maybe for a Nostalgia Super Stock match racer? Any leads, advice or suggestions greatly appreciated. Thanks.
