Thanks to Byron's "Gasser Madness" for this
In the fall of 1964 Landy decided to go "match racing" so he made several radical changes to his car. To reduce weight
he removed all of the front suspension and replaced it with leaf springs and a solid front axle from a Dodge van.
Landy relocated the rear axle forward about 8 inches. The front suspension was moved forward about 6 inches. These
changes moved the majority of the car's weight over the rear tires. Landy used the car in this configuration for numerous
match races in me last few months of 1964.
