Engine Builder: Clemons

Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever heard of a race-car engine builder named Fred "Skinny" Clemons? Maybe he's lost to history, as no one I talked to about him had ever heard of him. He was a contemporary of Miller and involved with the Indy 500 pre-1940.

Jeff, Yes he was a well-known racing figure who had a long history of involvement w/the Indy 500 and sprit cars.

He was a skilled car builder who also built his own OHC engines.
