Interscope Racing 935
August 26, 2003

The reason why we put the chassis & body back on the table, is because the rear of the car always looked crooked.....because it was.

The story goes: It was the early '80s and we just finished racing at Road Atlanta. Andy & I were preparing two Swap Shop 935s, one for Doc Bundy and one for Desire Wilson. It was a wonderful afternoon, I think we finished 2nd in the race, don't know where Interscope finished. One of our buddies from the old days was a mechanic on the Interscope Team (we'll call him Dirk). Dirk was giving John Paul, Jr.'s sister a ride from the pit lane to the garages at the top of the hill, so he thought he would step on the gas. Remember, these 935's really do make more than 700 hp. Well, you can guess what happened... O.K., I'll tell you. The car went sideways and whacked into another parked car, totaling the car it hit & doing a big number on the back of the K-3. Needless to say, this was the only accident the car had been in. So 2 things happened, one, the car got fixed, but the bodywork was installed a little on the piss (on the piss is a term used by the English mechanic to mean crooked). Two, our friend, Dirk, got fired and actually came to work for me at Gunnar Racing soon after the accident. He is a great guy and a great mechanic, just a lousy showoff.

The picture on the right shows the tail low on the right side.

These pictures show the wing angle so we can document it for reassembly.

Crooked or not, this car has always been a great handling car, so we want to blueprint all the specifications.

A few years back, Jay won the overall HSR championship with this car, beating out even the big prototypes.

The rest of these pictures are really for all you model guys.


We'll restore all of these parts. The pictures are really for our documentation. This K-3 has never been apart since its racing days.

I bought this car from Danny Ongias and it had been sitting since 1983.

All the rear bodywork gets installed in a fixture to insure body straightness.

Just pictures of some of the body seams.

This is the pressure regulator fuel rail, which is used on all klugelfisher engines.

More shots taken for reassembly.


Pedal assembly being disassembled.

Most of the pedal assemblies we've rebuilt in 935s have always been natural aluminum in color. This assembly had been black hard anodized (original to delivery).

Everything is disassembled, inspected, cleaned, polished, plated and put back together.

If you have the parts in stock, i.e. bushings and new hardware, this can be done in one day.


The shocks have been restored cosmetically.
