The #35 Delagrange Hisso

 

 

     This Hisso was number 35 when Clarence Delagrange purchased it from Bill Howe who had originally numbered it 5 when he built it in 1929 to run at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.  Delagrange rebuilt it to run the short tracks.  This is not the same Howe Hisso that was numbered 100 and raced in the late 1920's and early 1930's.  Delegarnge only ran this car as #35 for a short period and then renumbered it 100.

     The same car is pictured below after having been wrecked by Johnny Holmes at Ft. Wayne, Indiana in 1939 Photos from the Jeff Adams collection
