Default The Leatherman cousins.

This post has caused me to do some more research on the Leatherman's. They were cousins, not brothers as I thought, and both have passed. Jim in 2017, and Larry in 2020.

According to Larry's obit, he retired from racing in 1970. According to Jims obit, he was a parts manager at several GM dealerships. Does anyone have more information about their exploits, other than what is known from their association with Dick Harrell?

I have a couple of recent pics I've attached of a 1969 Camaro racecar, sponsored by Branine Chevrolet, driven by Larry. Does anyone know about this car? I have no idea if it is the #15 ZL1 early or later in its career, or another racecar, run by Larry. I'm not even sure how I found these pictures, or if there is a better copy of them, or who owns them. The 1st and 3rd pic looks like its fresh out of a paint shop, engine out, and front bumper and hood not installed. The #15 ZL1 was originally Silver.

Thanks, Ken Boje

On July 3, 2018 Ro McGonegal wrote a story of the 1st ZL1 test, for Chevy High-Performance News. He wrote "They put a Dana 60 and ladder bar suspension underneath".

I'm pretty sure Bill P. installed a Dana when he had the car. I don't know if Fred Gibb had later installed a Dana when run by Jim Hayter in 1971. It is hard to see the details of the rearend, in the article picture. The article says the car has a heavy duty general motors rearend.

Thanks for the reply. It almost looks like a Eaton corporate H032 rear end but the picture is of such low quality even when I blow it up I cant tell what it is. Maybe resident expert Freddy, aka Big Gear Head can chime in.

I really can't say, but it looks too large for a 12 bolt. I believe the car has a Dana 60 in it now.
