SeaBiscuit VI was built by Forest Johnson of Miami, FL for a prominent South Florida yacht captain and racer.  Shortly after it’s Dec ’56 delivery, a non-racing mishap resulted in it being sold to Al Brinkman of Grand Island, NY.   Aggressively campaigned on the F-Service Runabout racing circuit, Seabiscuit VI was crowned the 1957 APBA National Champion and in 1958, set the F-Service Runabout UIM 5-mile competition record at 58.479 mph.  Searching for more speed, she was reconfigured at least three times over her career with different motors and drives. In 1962, the cockpit was moved further back, the original Cal Connell Cadillac was removed, and a Hemi transplanted….all in the hopes of gaining those extra miles per hour!
