 Figured out it's an AUSCO brand 1.5 ton, model D-7400. Now, need to find one!
The pic from the 1969 catalog shows the unique shape of the frame.
I'd think the blue was the original color.
They cost $132.75, brand new. That was a lot in 1969 money.   Still a lot, compared to imported jacks today.

Ausco means - Auto Specialties Manufacturing Co.  They were out of St. Joseph, Michigan

That jack was $902.82 in todays money, not cheap.

Equally impressive is the lack of droop on the front.

Quite common to have the car on simple rollers when traveling between race tracks for testing.
The 'good stuff' was put on at the track!  yesnod

The car number 093 is written on the tire.    What are the other markings?    Do they relate to a set or specific run number?

I'd think in previous duty, the tire was part of a test run.  Now, only a lowly roller, but extending the duty cycle of the tire.
The wheel didn't win any prizes for cosmetics.   rofl

Just curious as to how much coin you had to pay? Did the seller know what they had?

If you don't want to post the $$, I understand

I don't have to research anything to get it back to a specific day in it's life.   Not been modified by it's previous owner, either!   cheers

When I found it, I explained to the owner about the vintage photo posted above - my car with the same jack under it.
We came to terms and the largest cost, by far, was the crating and shipping - total weight was 108#, with 90 being the jack itself.
Nice thing was that it had a lot of use, so it doesn't leak.  Let's see a jack built today last 50 years!   smilielol

I believe this jack was chosen because it was made in Windsor, Canada, 15 minutes away from Chrysler Engineering in Highland Park, MI.  Probably an open req. with AUSCO. They wanted something sturdy that would be trouble free.  Never used for fast pit stops! 

I think every race team used whatever jack they felt was best for them.  (I'd say a lighter one would be helpful.)

Perhaps this can turn into the "Race Jack" thread?    2thumbs

That's the little 68# , 1.25 T jack. (D-6200)
In the 60's they built another assy. plant in Windsor, Ontario.
Their engineering was still done in St. Joseph, MI.

The D-7400 started off in 1966, per the info I got from the current US Jack Company.
They were nice enough to send me specs and a parts list for the old D-7400 1.5 T jack.

Nice find!

Interesting photo from 1971.

When the Woodward Garage closed down at the end of 1970, most of the equipment and spare parts went to Petty Enterprises.

The jack in this photo LOOKS LIKE THE ONE UNDER THE 88 !  

Check out the color & details: end of handle, lift arm oval silver plate, gap between arm and handle...

Today - At the Petty's up in the storage loft, in a corner, covered with crap never to be seen again!   scratchchin
