In the early to mid 1940s Bayliss Levett owned the 404 Hisso Sprint Car. He crashed it and had Lenny completely rebuild it. After rebuilding the car, Lenny raced it for Bayliss. According to Austin Thornton, Bayliss ended up selling the Hisso to a body shop around 1946-47. The shop still had Lenny race it for them. Some people believe the Low Quick-change Axle in Joe and Jerry Valdez's 1921 Ford Model T Roadster might come from the Hisso sprint car or shared parts.
