Straight axle, 327, black diamond tuck.
That better be a .250" over 289.
Not an old pic BUT what a neat car!!
My 65 Comet,CHRR 2007.
These 2 are at the Snyder collection in Ohio. Notice who's car the white one was.
Here's the "Dyno" Don Nicholson '64 Comet a few months before I bought it in 1980.
(it's now in Oklahoma)
This one runs at my local 1/8mi. The plate says "ALTERED", he drives it in, runs 5's, drives it home.
Must have a 327 in it.
It ain't a money pit w/ plates, it's a driver.
One of my favorite subjects. One with plates that I minitubbed a couple weeks ago. My tribute to the Comet drag cars. Ran an all motor 11.20 in the quarter last week.
The Hayden Proffitt 612 car seems to go back and forth, with and without injector stacks? do I need thicker glasses? more caffiene?
Any info on post 75 on the 64 #790 A/FX with the Bill Stroppe and Assoc. decal on the door ? Pre-delivered test run that went to one of the 'names', or maybe a test mule or???? Thanks,
I seen this at March Meet 2008 , Not old but very nicely done ..
If I was to build one ..
My name for the car would be HALE BOPP

Man, there's something about these old Comets that makes the old ticker skip a beat. A friend of mine up in South Jersey is building one, oughta have it painted any day now. I'll post some pics after my next trip North.
Judd, What do you mean, Whats left of mine? Did something happen to it...JOHN
Awsome!!!!!! Nice set up!
No I just have the dash apart to rebuild it back to the original switches on the lights ignition and wipers at the bottom with a flat plate of alluminum in the center with the gauges.
I may put the 4.11 tracklock pig in Sunday so I can run it at test and tune Friday next week to se if I want to change the 4.57 locker to a 4.30 or 4.11.
It hooked real good a month ago and ripped all 10 rear lugs off as I tried to launch breaking the diaginal brace and the disc brake rotor cap. I spent a month rebuilding it and changing to a panard bar on the rear It handles better now and It ran a 12.14 at 108mph 1/4 mile on strait motor and I hope to break in to the 11's with the 4.30 or 4.11 rear change.
I like this one.
looking for color shot of this one.
Roy showing how it's done !

More of Jack Chrisman's Comet
Saw a tiny pic in old 60's mag of a drag car '63 S-22 hardtop (pillarless "fastback" roof) looked later couldn't find it. Anybody seen that? Did I imagine it?
