    I stumbled upon this story about a lost A/FX drag car that inadvertently ended up on eBay.

    1963 Super Duty Le Mans coupe

    Quite an interesting read, found the following info about the only 6 made:

    (1)Shipped to Ray Nichels Engineering, Merrillville, Illinois. Driven by Paul Goldsmith to a win in the 1963 Daytona 250-mile Challenge Cup. Documented as destroyed.

    (2) Shipped to Stan Long Pontiac, Detroit, Michigan. Driven by Stan Antlocer. Whereabouts unknown, though front clip has been recovered.

    (3) Shipped to Superior Pontiac, San Antonio, Texas. Whereabouts unknown.

    (4) Shipped to Mickey Thompson. Campaigned as the No. 749 A/FX car and driven by Bill Shrewsberry and Bob Spar. Fate unknown.

    (5) Shipped to Mickey Thompson. Campaigned as the No. 756 A/FX car and driven by Jess Tyree; later sold to Arnie Beswick and campaigned as the Little B's Runabout before Beswick converted it into the Tameless Tiger Funny Car. Destroyed in a racing accident, but later restored.

    (6) Shipped to George DeLorean and Roger Schmidt. Restored.
