Interested in owning a piece of authentic Hollywood car culture history, driven by country music legend Kenny Rogers? MotoeXotica Classic Cars is proud to offer the one and only #49, the 1970 Chevrolet Camaro Stock Car used in the 1982 movie, “Six Pack” as Brewster Baker’s Grand National racer. This Brewster Baker car will also be on an up and coming episode of Fast N’ Loud on Discovery. On exactly how Richard Rawlings and Dennis Collins found, purchased and then sold to Motoexotica Classic Cars, the authentic Brewster Baker car from “SixPack” the movie, starring none other than Kenny Rogers! We were also told, that while Richard was performing donuts in his parking lot, he accidentally hit a concrete bollard! I guess Richard didn’t understand that this car was made to turn left not right!

Country & western singer and human teddy bear Kenny Rogers made his film debut in this story about a stock car racer and six orphans. Brewster Baker (Rogers), a loner who’s been away from racing for a few years, one day discovers six kids trying to strip his car. No Brady Bunch, this brood has taken to stealing car parts for money, but Brewster still takes a liking to them, putting their mechanical expertise to work in his big comeback bid and teaching them to behave in the bargain. For all its cute contrivances, SIX PACK isn’t a bad film and is guaranteed to warm the hearts of Rogers’ fans. Among the kids, future stars Diane Lane (THE COTTON CLUB) and Anthony Michael Hall (SIXTEEN CANDLES) show their promise.

The movie was designed to suck you in with a cool race car, and tug on your heart strings with a happy ending. While the racing in Six Pack wasn’t NASCAR’s Winston Cup series (now Sprint Cup), but rather its Grand National series; it was still one of the first major films to feature stock car racing. NASCAR legends such as Darrell Waltrip, Mark Martin, Alan Kulwicki and Rusty Wallace made cameo appearances in the movie.

So where has this Sixpack Stock Car been for the past three decades? Well as of lately, the full history has been a little cloudy and we have discovered during our recent research that there is a bit of myth and legend surrounding these original Sixpack cars. The real story is Kenny Rogers and K.C. Spurlock together owned and formed Gambler Racing Chassis located in Hendersonville Tennessee. Gambler was set up to produce the five cars that were going to be used for the up and coming Six Pack movie starring Kenny himself. One of the cars purchased was originally built in Parchment Michigan with a Howe chassis by racer John Dole and raced at Galesburg speedway, John took the proceeds from selling his race car and bought a new car that got to do a small appearance in the movie as car #16. The second movie car that was for the asphalt track filming was built by Jr. Hanley (“Mr.Canada”) at his shop in Canada. The third car was purchased from Roscoe Smith (Howe chassis) and the fourth car was from Bopp Chassis Machine. The fifth car, which is the only original car remaining today and the car presented for sale was built from an original Green Hornet Howe #3 race chassis.

This car was the “camera car” and was attached to a camera vehicle rig (rig was designed by stock car driver Don Schisler and could do speeds up to 120mph!) and was used for all the head on shots of Kenny Rogers racing around the tracks. After all the racing track shots were completed the car was then welded to the RV’s racing trailer to complete all of the RV scenes in the movie. This is 100% that car and we have all the history and documentation to prove as such.

In 1982 after the filming of the movie, one car was destroyed in a race at Seven Flags speedway in Douglassville, GA and the other three cars that were damaged during filming were parted out and sold. The last car, which is this car was taken back to Gambler Racing Chassis along with the trailer and the RV. Unfortunately the stock car and RV were left at the shop neglected for many years until the mid 90’s when a struck of luck changed the future fate of the only remaining Brewster Baker car!

The hero in this story that literally saved a generation’s movie car was “Old School” sprint car legend Larry Wood of New Madison, Ohio. Larry was and still is a mechanic and crew chief, but most notably, an owner and builder. This “Old School” guy does it pretty much on his own with hard work, a mind that that can analyze any problem, unbelievable fabrication skills, and most importantly, a great love of the sport. While back in the day Larry Wood was one of many just like him, today the Larry Woods of the world are quickly disappearing from the racing landscape.

In 1996 while Larry was doing some research for building a replica sprint car for his dear friend Brad Doty who raced a Gambler sprint car in the 1980’s. Larry called his friend C.K. Spurlock and Tommy Sanders of Gambler in search for period correct parts. During the conversation Larry curiously asked them what ever happened to the original Brewster Baker cars? C.K. replied “Heck, the remaining Six Pack car is sitting out back of our plant here in Hendersonville since 1982. If you want it, come down and get it! Otherwise its going to scrap!” The offer didn’t have to be repeated and Larry was quickly on his way to Tennessee to haul back the authentic Brewster car for a complete but unexpected restoration! When Larry arrived the Brewster car was still on its original racing trailer from the movie, actually it was still welded to the trailer from its last filming scenes. The RV was also still on location but was in poor shape and sold off to someone else. Unfortunately the trailer was also in very poor shape and had to be cut to safely remove the Brewster car without damaging it. The current state of the Brewster car was in decent shape, the original body by Stock Car Fiberglass was in pretty good condition and the car still had a lot of originality still intact except for most of the engine was gone except for the block. Original parts that still remained from the movie were the original Frankland quick change rear end, original Howe hubs, Howe spindles, Howe coils, steering, Neal pedals and amazingly the original Stewart-Warner gauges and the famous custom made shifter that you can see in the movie!

Once back in Ohio with the car, restoration began first with the engine. Wood created a new powerplant that was consistent with early-1980s vintage of this car. He installed a small block 30 over 350ci with Speed-Pro forged pistons, Air Flow Research heads, Reed flat tappet cam, Holley double pumper carb and Accel Ignition. For a transmission he chose a 2-speed powerglide automatic transmission with a 2800 stall converter so he could easily drive the car around at parades and racing events. One of the finishing touches to the engine was a set of Rayburn valve covers that are a 1 of 1 prototype personally given to Larry from CJ Rayburn. The deal for the valve covers was only if Larry promised to place them on the last and remaining Brewster car! Another final touch was Larry wanted to find the correct tires for the original wheels that were still on the car. Larry called his contact at Goodyear tires and they said the tires were discontinued years ago and not available. A month later a fresh set of Goodyear Short Track tires showed up at Larry’s door. Larry called Goodyear back and asked how much do I owe you guys for finding these tires? They replied back nothing as we want donate these tires to the Brewster Baker restoration and they are literally the last set as we found them in the back of our New Jersey warehouse!

Over the years Larry accomplished majority of the magnificent restoration himself but wanted to credit the painting and final detailing to Lloyd Trump of New Madison, Ohio. The correct colors were perfectly matched from the original by Larry Wagner of Dayton, Ohio. Larry was generous to give us plenty of photos of the car before, during and after the restoration and after viewing these photos we have to admit that fate led Larry to restore this special car because there might not be anyone alive that could have done it any better or more correct!

After restoration was complete Larry had the Brewster car in his possession for about ten years before selling it to a local friend who later down the road traded the car to someone else. Then it just so happened that the Brewster car ended up being the featured car at the Celebrity Car Show taking place at Gas Monkey Live in November of 2016. Richard Rawlings and Dennis Collins both remembered the movie and decided to make an offer. The deal happened rather quickly as the owner threw out a number that worked and Richard and Dennis were willing to pay cash that day to make it happen. The flatbed was there within the hour and Richard, Dennis and the owner went back to Gas Monkey Garage where they finalized the deal.

In April of 2017 we purchased the Brewster car from Richard Rawlings and brought it back to our facility in St. Louis. We were told most likely that the car could be just a replica but we had a couple of leads and clues that the car was authentic. After some time researching and being welcomed with huge hospitality of the dirt racing community we were able to put together an amazing but authentic history of this Kenny Rogers movie car! We would like to thank the Gundaker family at Tri-City Speedway in Granite City for letting us play on their wonderful dirt track with the Brewster car and featuring is at the UMP Hell Tour Nationals! Thank you Larry and Bear Wood for helping us putting together the lost but critical history of the car and writer Bill Holder for documenting the restoration and car movie history. Thank you Richard Rawlings and the crew at Gas Monkey Garage for selling us the car and another big thank you to Larry Wood for saving the last original SixPack movie stock car! Love will turn you around!

This car is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri. It is sold as is on a bill of sale, where is, without a title. This car is an authentic race car and is not street legal. GET OUT AND RACE!!!
