Lauterbach Special A-91
Henry Lauterbach's first hydro that he built for himself was recently restored by Larry Lauterbach & Steve Lewis and was on display at The Wheeling Vintage Raceboat Regatta in Wheeling, West Virginia. Henry originally built this hull in 1952 for the 135 cu. in. class. Steve worked for Henry for a number of years in Hampton, Virginia and is now the proud owner of this rare hydro. This hydro is 13' 6" and powered by a Ford Flathead V8-60 that was originally built by Vic Edelbrock, Sr. and was restored by Rich Willim.
