Lil’ Miss Dodge, not a rapper, a hip hop dancer, or beauty pageant winner in Dodge City… It’s Betty Skelton! In 1955 flying over a Custom Royal Lancer at Florida’s Cypress Gardens

Tuesday, February 13th, 2018 by admin

She was the first female test driver in the auto industry in 1954 with Chrysler’s Dodge division

Not only did she drive the pace car at Daytona, she also set a stock car record in a 1954 Dodge Red Ram V8 on the beach.

As auto industry’s first female test driver, she guided “L’il Miss Dodge,” a jump boat, over a 1955 Custom Royal Lancer on a ramp at Florida’s Cypress Gardens and she was part of a team that drove a 1955 Dodge to 395 new records at the Bonneville Salt Flats.

And in 1956, she broke Cannonball Baker’s 40-year record for the Transcontinental Auto Race from New York to Los Angeles

why they figured this was a good marketing idea is anyone’s guess. Seriously, flying speedboats? I would guess this was when Betty decided to go work for GM… safer, less ridiculous marketing stunts
