    I believe that is my buddy John Richmond's old car, "Whistler". Before that was this one, which ran high 8s. That is one straight black car, and viciously fast 92150932_813040349202589_5306288994487631872_o.jpg

    Thanks for bumping the thread brother! My favorite car since my first was a '65 Cyclone. Tried to find it last year but failed, along with a S/S car that was here locally years ago. Settled on my '63 Custom hardtop instead. Rock on!

    Did anyone ever find out who raced the 790 car? The Stroppe insignia kind of goes against the belief that Stroppe only built 1 64 for S&M.

    Unfo this picture refutes the idea it went to Sturm - Here is Sturm in his 843 car racing the mysterious ‘790’.
    Promotional car makes sense however.
