Cunningham C-5R (1952)

Cunningham C-5R
The Cunningham C-4R was a decent race car, but at the 24 Hours of 1952 Le Mans it only finished 4th, and two more cars left the track. This result did not suit Briggs Cunningham, and in 1953 he decided to try again, but on a different model, the Cunningham C-5R. The car received a low aerodynamic body made of aluminum with an elongated tail and a checkered radiator grill, which the journalists called "the smile of the shark." As for the internal structure, everyone here noted a kind of step back, since the independent suspension with springs for greater reliability was replaced by continuous axles on the longitudinal torsion bars at the front and rear.

Under the hood was a 5.4-liter Hemi V8 331 engine with 310 hp. The Alfin hydraulic drum brakes were huge - 17 ".

Driven by John Fitch and Phil Walters, the Cunningham C-5R finished third at the 1953 Le Mans, behind only two Jaguar C-Types, and achieved the best speed over a kilometer distance of 250 km / h.

Two more crews in the Cunningham C-4R came in 7th and 10th. Disc brakes were key to Jaguar's victory, so Cunningham approached Dunlop to purchase such brakes for his team, but was refused. Built in one piece, the Cunningham C-5R ran at Le Mans for one season because it was defeated in 1953 during the 24 Hours of Reims.

When did we start using tarmac (asphalt) on roads?
When did we start using tarmac (asphalt) on roads?
I learned this today. Tarmac (asphalt) only really became popular once the motorcar was invented. Once you know that, it seems obvious, but it never really occurred to me. “Macadam” was invented by John Loudon McAdam, a Scottish engineer, in 1820. He used a base of large stones with crushed stones bound with gravel on top. The road was then compacted to make it firm. He called this type of road…

Packard Panther Daytona Roadster '1954

Tumblr media
Packard Panther Daytona Roadster
Packard is an American-made luxury car brand that existed from 1899 to 1958. For many years, her cars were sold under the advertising slogan "Ask the man who owns one".
In the 50s. almost all American automakers had their own sports car projects, but only the Chevrolet Corvette and Ford Thunderbird were able to reach mass production. Packard, due to its financial problems, could not launch such a model into a series, but nothing prevented it from creating concept cars that attracted public attention to its products.

Experimental, 1954 Packard, the Packard panther, a full sized plastic sports car, is the first of its type specially designed using a high horsepower engine capable of record speed, the car, a 3-person model with advanced styling in its one-piece plastic body, is the result of 3 years of design & materials study by the engineering division of P.M.C. Co.

Has under development as a result of its studies of plastics for both tooling & product use, one section of the company's new styling division has a project working on design, while another section works to develop plastic dies for metal parts to get lower manufacturing costs, this would allow the company to further customize standard cars which could be built economically in limited numbers with special custom features.

The 1954 Packard Panther Convertible was produced as a concept car with muscle. Packard also designed the Panther with then-revolutionary materials in mind.
Chevrolet wasn’t the only major automaker tinkering with the use of glass-reinforced plastic (GRP) in auto bodies in the 1950s. Packard — which had considered using this then-revolutionary material as early as 1941, primarily as a means of continuing auto production in the face of wartime steel shortages — was dabbling in the field, too. In 1953, the company again considered using the material and decided to build a two-seat convertible sports car with a GRP body.

Packard’s chief stylist, Richard A. Teague, was given the task of hastily styling the car. No time was allowed for him to construct a full-size mock-up, so management approved his design directly from a small one-sided model. A running version was completed in 1954, using the 127-inch wheelbase Cavalier chassis and the metal floorpan common to all Packards of that year. It was originally to be called "Grey Wolf II," after Packard’s famed 1903 race car. But upper management didn’t like the name’s connotation, so "Panther" was chosen instead. To lend its massive "sports car" some performance credentials, Packard gave the Panther a 359-cubic inch straight eight, the biggest engine available. The first two cars got McCulloch centrifugal superchargers, boosting the engine’s output to 275 horsepower.

Despite the car’s rather generous dimensions, it actually performed well, at least in a straight line. With no major modifications other than a small racing windshield, Panther Number 2 went 131.1 mph at Daytona Beach, Florida, an unofficial class record. But ultimately, the Panther was overshadowed by Packard’s many other woes, relegating the car to a sidebar in the last chapter of the venerable company’s history. Only four Panthers were made, all of them essentially hand-built prototypes. Packard never seriously considered putting the car into production, despite heavy lobbying by one of its distributors. Today people’s opinions of the Panther seem to be mixed. Packard enthusiasts will generally admit that the front end is not particularly elegant but consider the rest of the car sleek and interesting.

Dick Teague named his concept Gray Wolf II after the Packard Gray Wolf race car that competed in the 1904 Vanderbilt Cup. At the development stage, the roadster was renamed Packard Panther, and only then, when it reached 210 km / h on the "flying mile" in Daytona Beach, it was named Panther Daytona.
