    The O/P thinks this is Doug Cooks '37 Chevy but I think it's the one in the background.

    Here's a picture of Dale Moody with his '38 Chevy that was running a 283 at this time. He would join up with Sam and Mack Jones and be part of the Moody & Jones C/GS '37 Chevy about 2 years after this photo. They would go on to a pretty succesful run in the early '60's at the US Nationals and Cordova World Series of Drag Racing.

    This one's a '38. We had a $65 4-door that we used to flat tow and push-start or drag roadster with.

    Jim, it's hard to believe what cars sold for in the later 50's- early 60's. My Brother bought a beautiful 38 Chev coupe in 1958, for $27.50. He spent the big money for this 40 coupe in 1960, $50 bucks. 2012-12-15 144104.jpg 2013-04-10 110956.jpg
