Short Sebring Story from R. "Kas" Kastner

When building the cars for the 1963 attack at Sebring, I had 31 gal fuel tanks made up and then installed them in the trunks of the cars. At the first filling I found that they were oversize by almost 1 gals. No time to take out and change etc etc.....soooooooo, I bought a bunch of plastic 8 ounce bottles, screwed the lids on tight and dumped them into the tank until the proper volume was found. Went through tech inspection easy and right on the money. Later on we found that the gasoline had melted the plastic and I was back to the original size. Good thing they never checked them after the event. Amazingly none of the drivers noticed the knocking around in the tank when on low fuel. I heard it instantly but " whatchagoingtodo". We went three hours with each car before refueling. ( could have made it without the extra but ......) Finished the event 1,2,4.
