    Baron,
    It was 1.55 60ft and 116 mph and 6.36 at the 1/8, I am still working with my M/T street drag radials and getting the 60ft times down and that is through full length exhaust.
    A friend filmed it and put it on facebook.

    Wow, what a hard charger. Most people are afraid to run a corvette like that. They have turned into many peoples 401k accounts and have gotten away from being the Hot Rods that we all remember

    Have to red light once in a while to make sure your not leaving late. Like you said, the best thing is having fun with the car. Glad you had a good week-end.

    Only a few this time I, get to looking for them and get sidetracked finding other cars LOL.

    An A/S vette with NICE paint.

    This 1964 Corvette has a 327-ci engine, rated from the factory at 365 hp, backed by a Muncie M21 four-speed manual trans-mission and a 4.111 rear gear ratio.

    Traction was hard to find in the old days. Racers often resorted to their own form of traction compound, commonly referred to as “gold dust.” The racer’s crew sprinkled the rosin on the track, making sure the rear tires passed through it during the burn-out. Here, at Drag City in Ringgold, Georgia, some dust is applied. (Photo Courtesy Wayne Holland)

    Orange Peel is a blown big block motored 4-speed car that was built in the 60's & now owned (and raced!) by Edward Beaumont. I think the engine was built by Bones Balogh...

    1953 Vette

    Unknown racing vette

    Split window.jpg


    In the foreground is the 1959 Corvette Stingray Racer. Bill Mitchell had the car built in secret to avoid conflicts with higher management over GM’s racing ban. The original Stingray racer weighed just 2,200 pounds (1,000 pounds less than the 1960 production Corvette) and was equipped with a 283 V8 with fuel injection. Mitchell had the car raced and Dr. Dick Thompson won a SCCA Championship in 1960. Mitchell used to drive the car around town on the weekends, and once it retired from racing he had a passenger seat installed.

    Behind the silver Stingray Racer is the 1956 Corvette SS. This car is all Duntov who believed that GM needed a purpose built racer to compete with Ferrari and Maserati at Sebring. Weighing just 1850 lbs, it was equipped with a 283 V8 with Ramjet fuel injection. Although it was clocked at over 183 mph and was very quick in testing, the car retired due to mechanical failures after only 23 laps in the 1957 12 Hours of Sebring.


    see eamil two old ones.jpg


    The black Corvette is a 1957 fuelie. Check out the custom mods including the roll bar behind the driver and a windshield that is either cut way down or is non-existent. His number is “283” which corresponds to the 283 ci V8 in the ’57. Mobil 1’s “Pegasus” is also painted on the door suggesting the car may have been sponsored. Behind it is most likely a 1956 or ’57 with a hartop.


    SEE email drift.jpg



    Bill Mitchell was heading GM’s Style Department in 1958 when he supervised the building of the XP-700 Corvette Concept. Built using many regular 1958 Corvette components, the red concept also had a number of custom touches including the long nose with the Corvette logo centered inside, “Grand-Prix” styled side vents in front of the doors, a side mounted exhaust system and rear brake ducts that were situated just behind the doors. Completing the “Grand Prix” look were the Dayton wire wheel covers.

    Perhaps the most striking feature on XP-700 is the unique bubbletop. The plastic canopy was coated to help block the sun’s rays and it also had a unique rear view mirror which was designed into the top and worked much like a periscope.

    Mitchell drove the car personally for a year and then in 1959 XP-700 was further modified with an elongated rear that eventually would show up on the 1961 Corvette while the new front end featured large air scoops beneath the Lucas “Flame Thrower” headlamps. The Corvette was repainted to a pearlescent silver and it was shown at the 1960 New York Auto Show.

    Chevrolet ad celebrating the 1956 Corvette that won its class at the 1956 12 Hours of Sebring. This same Corvette, dubbed “The Real McCoy”

    Chevrolet campaigned the Corvette at Sebring for the first time in 1956 with four Corvettes. Three were factory production cars while the fourth, wearing the #1, was the engineering mule that broke 150 mph in the Flying Mile at Daytona earlier in the year.

    John Fitch and Walt Hansgen drove the #1 Corvette to class victory and they finished ninth overall in the 12 hour race. Chevrolet was quick to commemorate the event with this advertisement proclaiming Corvette’s racing credentials as The Real McCoy.
