Known History

1969 Palliser Winkelmann WDB-2 Formula B car. Originally owned by Phil Reilly, founder of the world renown vintage car restoration company in Corte Madera, CA, Phil Reilly and Company. The car was campaigned in the Professional Formula Continental series by partners Phil Reilly, Jon Woodner (driver) and Joe Huffaker, Sr. (Engine builder and chassis specialist). This car was entered under the name Xcar as the partners made significant improvements, including unique side pods which originally held additional fuel cell capacity, modified front suspension for better anti-dive performance, twin rear engine bay to roll hoop bracing and some very unique aerofoil tube-mounted side mirrors. After many exchanges of ownership, the car was found hanging in the rafters of a barn near Humboldt, CA in 2010. After undergoing a 3 year professional restoration, it began racing in CSRG events in late 2012, and winning the CSRG perpetual McKee Award for best restoration for the year. Car has been driven in 6 race events since restoration.
