OK I can believe that Gary but I bet you don't know why the Stahl/Benner '57 was backwards and Jere's '56 wagon was correct. [ATTACH] [ATTACH]
Why is the Chevy Bowtie backwards? I noticed the same thing on the Stahl/Benner '57 Fuelie.
That's Frank Iaconnio's Banana1 unless Rotunda was driving it.
The black tube above the lift bar is the right side exhaust pipe that was required to extend at least to the rear axle.

Gary...what were the first gear ratios of the 3 speed vs the 4 speed?

I love these tech stories from Chuck and Terry. They are very accurate and bring back lots of good memories. Keep 'em coming boys!

In 1967 at any NHRA event you would have not been permitted to run in competition without a functional exhaust system connected to your headers or...

I wouldn't call this storage but it's the first time we've seen it in 40 years (2011).

LaMar Benner's name is correct. He is LaVerne's brother.
I know the work you are facing Don, ours was parked for 42 years. Hope you get 'er done for York next year so we can park our 4 dr next to yours.
