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. Dick Landy was the premier factory-backed Dodge driver, and his restored cars are worth a small fortune This book is the first on “Dandy” Dick Landy’s cars and career Landy’s cars represent the muscle car movement at the time, and his cars are chronicled by body style, year by year About the Author Geoff Stunkard is a veteran journalist and book author.
