Bill Frick was born in Berlin, Germany at the end of WW1. He moved to the United States before he was 18. His first engine swap was to install a 1924 Dodge 4-cylinder engine in a Model A Ford. Frick's job consisted in performance-tuning automobile engines. During the winter of 1946 he built a V8-60 midget racer that he won races with. During the season of 1949, Phil Walters drove the midget for Bill. Phil drove the midget under the name Ted Tappett.[1] In 1949 Frick opened up Bill Frick Motors at Rocville Centre, New York. Bill Frick Motors was a custom conversion and engine installation shop.
