    11016962_10205812216930799_1962982652753001700_n.jpg There is a disagreement on another thread about this cars history. I thought that it had been posted on here but I can't find it. Anyone remember the original dealer and who was driving in this pic?

    Not a great picture of a picture. Found this in the November 1967 issue Hot Rod. I was looking for something else of course. P.S. already checked. Best I can figure the guy passed away.

    Can't read the fuzzy ad hardly at all but this may well be the former Reynolds Ford/Mike Gray tbolt. I'm not sure if Don Page owned it in 1967 but he may have. Don was also the 2nd owner of the Sox & Martin 64 Afx Comet. Len

    Yes, it's the Reynolds Tbolt. Don Page had the altered wheelbase work done at a shop in Utica, NY. I believe it was sold to a guy named Maurice soon thereafter. Car eventually went to the Mid west where Randy Delisio purchased the car and brought it back to New York whereupon he restored and sold it.

    Does anyone have pictures or information of the original production number #13 car? Think I may have a lead on some new information on this car.

    Perhaps. Looks like there were three cars delivered on 12-6-63, which would be cars 12 through 14, so there's no telling which one is technically #13. Those three cars were the Damerow Ford (Bill Ireland), Marv Tonkin Ford (Jim Price) and the Jerry Alderman (Bob Martin) car. As far as I know the Tonkin car is the only one unaccounted for.

    The car in question from post #3846 is found back in post #1994.

    "Dennis K. says the car is the former Ed Martin Ford - Don Turner #3 car."

    I'm not so sure. The 2nd owner Charlie Stafford painted the car yellow and it stayed that way until 69. Any idea on the photo date? Len

    Don't think this photo has been posted before. Trying to track down the local photographer who took the picture.

    Same car in color. Don't know if it's been posted, too many pics to wade through.... if it has been posted, you now have the opportunity to view it again.

    Taken at Milan Dragway around 1985. I don't know if it is authentic or not.

    Damerow Ford and Marv Tonkin Ford T-bolts.
    I'll post up a lot more photos of the former Bill Ireland car when Gary Wanless owned/raced it in Mission BC. This car went through many transformations, and then finally converted to 68 Cougar flip top funny car. Stay tuned! Damerow - Marv TonkinWEB.jpg
