    I moved to Detroit after college and went to work for GM. I met Al at all the swap meets and purchased many Deuce parts from him. He was the go -to guy for Chevy knowledge and parts. He had a basement full of them and he knew each one's history. Al came from a wealthy family but made a comfortable living in the buying and selling business during my stay in Detroit. I had a 5-window also and he offered lots of advice during my build. He was very approachable Hot Rodder. We stayed friends until his passing.

    Thanks Joey for writing this. Al was/is a legend here in Detroit. I threw a few hundred dollars his way before he passed and was lucky enough to see quite a bit of his collection of parts and cars.

    Please don't take this the wrong way. I'm only trying to clarify. Modified Production cars had to run an engine that matched car manufacture. Ford in a Ford, Chevy in a Chevy. I've always liked that 5 w coupe, and his "57" Chevy.

    I wonder if the fuelie set-up is still with the car. I remember when it seemed like every 3rd or 4th small block featured in a mag had one. Now, outside of factory equipped restos, I never see them.
     
  12. thanks Joey!
    a "real" car! fenders, bumpers, full interior, wipers etc...... built for cruising, racing, weather ........

    Great looking coupe, Joey. Five-windows are the perfect '32 body style - for now Model A's are more in my budget, but one day . . .

    You made me look.

    From the 1964 and 1966 NHRA rulebook.
    "All engines used in this section must be standard automobile production. However, year, make, and model are optional."
