    Here are pictures of the one that I am talking about. @39WILLZ owned it and here are a couple of pictures from when he had it. I think that he might have sold it to someone else in England now.

    Thats correct 33Hemi I had mine chopped within a few years of me buying it from "Nick the bandit" I owned it for 35+ years before I sold it. I think Keven that bought is Gassa garage here on Hamb. I guess the easiest thing would just be to reach out to him. The front sheet metal went to a guy in Calif.

    Thanks 39 willz, do you know how its coming along. I still have some steel front sheet metal 35-36 and possibly Ohio Georges steel 33 Willys trimmed front fenders or Virgil Cate's. I'd like to see pictures of it now.

    As it says on the door it's the Antignano Bros. I posted that picture awhile ago, I got it from Vinnie Antignano himself. It was taken at Dover dragstrip sometime around 63. The car was sold to a guy named Frank Hemerich from East Norwich LI. I think Frank had it chopped and a roll cage installed. He then sold it to another guy who ran it and rolled it. This was sometime in the early 80's I think.

    Nothing too unusual about the front rims. Just a Halibrand spindle mount wheel. Fairly common on late 60s gassers and funny cars.

    Keith is gone now so I can't call and ask him. His son Tim may have been too young at the time to remember but I will see what I can find out.
