Wood Brothers Ford coupe, driven by Sonny Hutchins, Runt Harris and Donnie Allison among others, before being wrecked by Eddie Royster.
Wood Brothers Ford coupe.
1966 – Martinsville test session. At the time, the #21 Ford coupe had behind it what must have been the best-funded, most substantial team in Modified racing.
This is supposedly Donnie Allison in the driver’s seat, perhaps when he drove the car in the 1967 Martinsville Cardinal 300, which he won.
This should be Eddie Royster at the wheel, after the 21 had been sold by the Wood brothers to Frank Edwards.
Martinsville, Sonny Hutchins.
Glen Wood’s car. (Odd that on the car it’s spelled “Glenn”, but in all Wood Brothers official publications it’s spelled “Glen”.)
1968 – Another shot from Trenton, taken I believe by Howie Hodge. The 659 is being driven by Parker Bohn. The 21 was said to have been driven here by Runt Harris, but I think it’s Sonny Hutchins behind the wheel in this photo.

This was after Eddie Royster crashed the car at Martinsville.
Trenton. In the background can be seen the #04 usually driven by Perk Brown or Paul Radford and the #23 usually driven by Jimmy Hensley.

That is Leonard Wood of the Wood Brothers, who built and campaigned the #21 in the mid-’60s.
