    Default P-51 Racer

    Somewhere around 1977 - 1980 I was at the Stockton airport and noticed some warbird activity around one of the hangers. I went inside and struck up a conversation with a guy there who showed me a very low time Wildcat and, even more memorably, an all red P-51 racer which he said had been built but never raced. He also let me climb into the cockpit of the racer.

    Does anyone know what bird that might have been? I have always been curious as to whatever happened to it, whether it
    ended up being one of the racers that I watch every year. The modifications looked very much like Sumthin' Else, Dage Red, and Strega.

    Ken,

    There is a photo of a P-51D which was modified but not raced in the book "Mustang -The Racing Thoroughbred-" on page 29.
    I've always thought it had an attractive paint scheme...

    ...This is a shot in the dark but I hope it helps...

    John
