The car was crashed badly in 1951. Wally was in the process of moving to the west coast but first he rebuilt his roadster. Among the changes was the replacement of the Ford V-8 with the GMC 6 cylinder, converting the Model A transmission to operate as an "in-out box", replacing the Model A body with a Model T roadster body and a "big car" type nose and replacing the wire wheels with solid wheels. Wally raced the Track Roadster in the CRA, California Roadster Association which was the fore runner of the California Racing Association, in that configuration on the west coast at such places as Carrell Speedway and Bonelli Stadium in Southern California.
This car was retired in 1954 as the Track Roadsters were being replaced by the more expensive Sprint Cars.
