    Cool car, definitely from the 60's helped a friend do a T in the 60s and it was Candy Tangerine Orange. That was the color at that time.:)

    Perfect even for today. The '39 tranny has me scratching my head though. I think I could still rebuild one blindfolded.

    Most excellent Joey !

    I love the '50's-60's Altered s because they evolved from Hot Rods.

    Joey; I don't know where you keep coming up with these amazing blogs and so much history for such a young guy, but kudos to you. I remember that issue like it was yesterday. The car was the epitome of altered and although I painted mine Omaha Orange, it had a great influence on me.

    Does anyone know what magazine and issue this coupe was in? If so, I would appreciate any information. Thanks

    This is one of those cars that makes me wonder what happened to it. I'd guess they put the motor in something else and threw out the transmission. The chassis probably became outdated due to certification requirements (I'm not sure if there even were requirements for altered cars in the 60's) and new technology. The body looks like glass...perhaps it got junked due to the areas removed to fit the engine setback.
     
  16. If I recall correctly, that car was totaled at the strip. I think the drag thread has pics of it.

    Let's see, when this issue came out I had just turned 13. I drooled over this car ( the stance, the blown Hemi, the color, etc.) and it's among my favorites! Thanks Joey
