    Can't build one of these on a budget anymore. The collector whore's have all but ended that deal.

    I have this exact issue! Interesting that he had the Delivery for sale at $2600.00!!! (copy of the ad is over on Colesy's board). Just the intake and carbs go for that now. Butch/56sedandelivery.

    Too bad what the NHRA did to the 'Junior Stockers',,,,,
    I remember seeing a Tri-Five Chevy Stocker in the back or side of every Gas Station
    after 1971,,,,,,,just sitting there with no place to go......

    I recognize the track as the defunct Cornhusker Raceway Park in Omaha. Pulling up in the staging lanes behind Charbonneau is the Inbomber. This was around 70.

    Tomorrow I pick up 1956 Chevrolet Sedan Delivery number THREE; I'll have 3 56 Deliveries! Sold the 57 Delivery a few months back. Two of them are complete, running, nice, street cars; one is going to become what I call a Pseudo-Junior Stocker (set up like an old stocker with a few new twists), one a wicked street car, and my original one is being traded for bodywork and a repaint on my DD truck. Butch/56sedandelivery.
     
  10. THREE? Well at least their being saved :)
    You have to wonder where all those trifive Chevys have gone? And please don't tell be the scrap heap :(

    Well, Just got back from going to pick up the car; long story short, I left it there. Really nice car in some ways, new paint, new interior, 4-speed, some new chrome and bumpers, old Offenhauser tri-power setup, and fenderwell headers, but the bad was LOTS of bondo in the obviously rusted out rockers, poorly installed floor boards, and rusted out body mounts that were'nt addressed. The car needed inner/outer rockers at the very least. The "327" had pre 1959 staggered valve cover heads, and a 283 style vibration dampener (riveted together style), so I think it is really a 283 with induction, exhaust, and a cam. So I'm still at two Deliveries. He offered a 1K price drop, but it would have taken a 5K drop just to keep my interest. Butch/56sedandelivery.

  14. Hi Terry. Im over on the Cosley site as JrStk.
    The new book is coming along well. As a fan first, Im having a ball talking with the racers, exracers and those who were involved. It really was a great time to be drag racing, its just a shame I wasnt old enough to really enjoy it first hand.
    The book will have something for everyone. Coverage, photos and bios. Chevrolet, Chrysler, Ford, Pontiac, Olds and even the ocassional Hudson.

    Cool.....Let me know if I can help. I knew a lot of Jr. stock racers in Md. from that time. Mostly guys like Gene Collins, Bob Maxey, Joe Perzan. Larry Kopp even ran Jr. stock back in the early 60's before turnning his 57 Chev wagon into a Modified Production car. I just wished I had the brains to have taken pictures back then.
    P.S. Im on the new site also.

    I always thought he was a good guy. Did he tell you he towed the heavy old SD wagon with a 1963 409/340 HP Impala with a P/G ? I bet that trans groaned :eek: a lot.

  21. Quite the work out I bet. The wagon was approaching 4400 lbs, plus the added tools, tires etc.

    Yes, Doug ... Studebaker, not StudAbaker :rolleyes:

    Bob Dwyer (51 Studebaker) NHRA Division 7, Bill Ersham (51 Studebaker) NHRA Division 3, Ted Harbit (51 Studebaker) NHRA Division 3, and Dempsey Hardy (55 Studebaker) NHRA Division 2 ... to name a few.

  25. You gotta love the variety offered up in 1960's stock. Its part of what made, and makes it so memorible. :)

    I currently own the "Surf Rat", the 66 biscayne in question. I am trying to find some history on the car. On the windshield are decals from the Indy nationals in 1966, 67, 68, and 69.

    Originally I thought this car might be Agent 007 but have found out that car was wrecked and salvaged. I have time slips from ATCO from 2002 and 2003 (when the picture was taken) but can't seem to come up with much information about the car.

    The trim tag indicates it is an original 15411 car sit it was originally an 8 cyl. It flies 427 flags but has been upgraded and downgraded so many times I don't know the original equipment.

    Anybody with pictures or information about this car would surely be appreciated.

    1990s.Would see it at Atco for Phil Modifers Meet.Joe has or had a shop in South Jersey
