Hard Parts via the Bus
Among the pieces that W.D. Goad picked up from Robert Crocker were several items that had been purchased as spares and still in the original boxes. Shown here is a full-tilt, brand-new Hemi crankshaft still in the box it came in. it was shipped via a Continental Trailways bus on 3-12-72 from Petty Enterprises in Randleman, North Carolina, to Cotton Owens Enterprises in Spartanburg. In the days before FedEx, we'd have to say this method of shipping was . . . well, enterprising!
