After being converted to a race car in 1970 by Clyde Hemeon, this 1967 Chevelle was driven by Bob Yuille, Charlie Kane, and then to three championships between Jim Sewart and his brother Greg. It primarily raced at the now defunct Atlantic Speedway but also at other tracks in the Maritimes. The car was retired in 1980 and parked beside a barn near Brookfield, NS. It was discovered in 2004 and moved to a field near the Halifax airport where it sat until 2010, when it was recovered by the eventual founders of Heart of a Champion. The car was fully restored in 2017 and has since been used to promote HOAC and help preserve Maritime stock car racing history. It was the immediate and unquestionable interest in this car since its restoration that spurred the formation of Heart of a Champion.
