I have photos that I don't think I can post that show two other '61 Impalas running OS/S, one white and one a darker color, as well as two '61...
Agreed Chuck. When Nicholson's car had the hood scoop, it had been upgraded to the newly released 2x4 version of the 409 with the hi-perf heads,...
Update: The '62 NHRA rule book stated that any car manufactured on or after June 1st '61 with equipment not available as standard production had...
Does anyone know exactly when the OS/S class was developed? I know it was after May 7th '61. At what meet did that class first appear?
Sounds a little like my car that I bought in '68, but mine's a convertible. Chuck, if you ever get serious, contact me personally and I can help...

The Locomotion Z-11 was restored many years ago and raffled off by the Late Great Chevy Assoc. I don't know who owns it now. The car was always in...
And we can thank Glenn Richards for it!
Yes, the '63 MP car is the Locomotion-II Z-11 car with later lettering. The car is restored now.
Modified Production didn't allow replacement...
Which car are you talking about Pat?
I believe that Champion Auto '63s fenders are lettered Aluminator, not Eliminator. Very interesting. Also, the Gatto Belair in some photos with it...
Another MT wheel ad
The mags with the slicks mounted are called Challengers.
I just found out today: RIP George (Soupy) Supinsky.
Here's a color one from E-Town (RIP)
