    looking for info on a 1955 chevrolet 2 door hard top drag car that was sponsored by magnum racing engines in milwaukee in the 60s and 70s. it was blue, was a tilt nose, and has magnum racing engines on the quarter panels. has the original paint and everything except the motor and trans. still in its original condition. any info on this car or pictures would be cool. i found it in a field in northern wisconsin this spring. thanks

    does anyone from wisconsin have any info on this car?? the pics are on here just above this post . please help with info.
     
  16. looked thru all the posts, can't find an answer to my question "the car was found in what city in northern Wisconsin?".

    When you bought the car, was there a roll bar and rear bumper on, in or with the car?

    Thanks.

    no rear bumper and no roll cage. i got the car about 30. min north of sheyboygen. it was a tilt nose and it has a reinforced 58 olds rearend in it and it was a 4 speed car. chrome crane style ladder bars and the fire wall was cut out a little cause i think the motor was set back a little. thanks for the help
