One of the greatest innovators of his time, Dick Landy was one of those
guys who made you rush back to your seat from the concessions stand so
you could watch him navigate the 1320. Win, lose, or draw, watching one
of Landy’s Dodges battling the likes of Ronnie Sox, “Grumpy” Jenkins, or
Hubert Platt was worth the price of admission alone.
Landy’s Dodges: The Mighty Mopars of “Dandy” Dick Landy takes you
chronologically through the cars of Dick’s career, from piloting his
first mount (1954 Ford Pickup) through his historic years of campaigning
Dodges. Chrysler racing historian and author Geoff Stunkard presents a
highly detailed account of Dick’s cars, including results and images
from the Landy family’s personal archive and modern shots of his
restored cars. In addition to coverage of Dick’s 1964 S/S Dodge and 1968
Hemi Dart, scarce info about his Ford Galaxies and Plymouth Savoy is
included as well.
At no other time has Landy’s entire career been chronicled and cataloged
in print with this much attention to detail. Sit back in your recliner
(wheels up) and enjoy the most comprehensive book on the history of
“Dandy” Dick Landy and his cars.

cars are worth a small fortune
