    The march 1966 issue of car craft has an article on the allen green car.
    It had a crank shaft co. stroked big chevy 454 cubes and a crossram intake it was a stick shift with independent corvette rear suspension it says it ran high tens at 130.
    teres also a car craft cut-a-way x-ray picture that ill post when I learn how.

    the Feb. 1966 super stock and drag ill. has the C.K.C. car with before and after pics of the wheelbase surgery and both 427's the "w" and the blown semi-hemi (454 ci.) it does not have the independent rear it has a 58 olds.

    I had no idea that these exsisted. There was a fast back style Nova at the Grand in Pigeon forge when I was there last April or Septmember. I cant remember which. I thought to myself, why would anyone ruin a nice car like that. I had no idea of the history behind them. It was prob a clone or something. Did anyone else on here see it?

    This one? CLONE!!! But I believe that Fiberglass Trends sold the roof separately until 1969, so there could be some roofs out there somewhere.

    Yep, Fiberglass Trends did sell a fastback roof for Chevy IIs. There was an old project car with one at Carlisle swap meet a few years back. The roof had studs in it that came down through the top of the quarter panels.

    I did look at it for a minute, but I cant remember the color. I was looking at the engine tucked under the cowl, and was looking in the rear window area. I thought someone home made it, and didnt like it. Now that I realize it had a history, it prob was a cool car to see. Was the one in your pic on display in the show at the Grand Hotel?

    I had a chance to look at the Twisted II at the Grand in Pigeon Forge earlier this month. That is a great looking car. I wouldve liked to have heard the engine run. I will try to post some pics i took of it.
