History of Macon MR7B Chassis 105

Macon MR7B chassis 105 is a Formula Ford built in 1969. I really don’t have much history of this car prior to the previous owner. If anyone can provide more information, please get in touch with me. I will update this post if I obtain any additional history of the car.

This car may have been the second “B” spec car built, based on a note I have in my scrapbook files. I don’t have a source for that note yet so I don’t consider this definitive at all.

Timeline

  • The previous owner was Jay Thier of Pittsburgh, PA.
  • March of 2009 – Thier obtained a VRG logbook for the car
  • He raced the car 7 times:
    • July 2009 – Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix at BeaveRun Motosports Complex, PA
    • September 2009 – Watkins Glen International Raceway, NY
    • May 2010 – Jefferson 500 at Summit Point Raceway, WV
    • July 2010 – Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix at Schenley Park, PA
    • October 2010 – Watkins Glen International Raceway, NY
    • July 2011 – Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix at BeaveRun Motosports Complex, PA
    • July 2012 – Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix at Pittsburgh International Race Complex, PA (previously named BeaveRun Motosports Complex)
  • 6th of August, 2016 – I purchased the remains of the car

The car was crashed in its last event and never repaired. It was heavily damaged on the right side, mostly in the engine bay area. There was no damage to the body but the chassis, suspension, and drivetrain were damaged enough that Jay decided to not fix the car. It was disassembled at Fowler Automotive Street and Track where the parts were stored and the chassis hung from the ceiling. It was from there that my ownership began.

Below are the photos I was provided at the time of sale as well as the ones in the logbook.
