    "Lots of work..." indeed!! The Hedworth car in the attached picture was also a conversion Hedworth vs  Dilcher '71 Supernationals  copy.jpg and it was not a simple undertaking. I recall a good deal of sweat, a bit of blood, and some very colorful language was involved in swapping out the sedan delivery rear door for a station wagon tailgate.

    Before they were known as Junior Stockers, there were lots of stock cars running on the dragstrips around the country.

    While 55 - 57 Chevrolets were the most popular cars in Junior Stock, there were other makes. Here is a '56 Plymouth Fury in H/S racing in the mid-60's.

    More new cars from the 50's that showed up at the dragstrip. This time it was a new '58 Oldsmobile against a new '58 Pontiac. That may have been a J2 Olds (with 3x2) vs a Tri-power Pontiac.

    I thought that the J2 was the tri-power Olds? In 1957? But my memory is fading with old age:)

    My friend called last night; he's SOLD his 56, 150, Handyman Wagon! Then, he offers to buy my Sedan Delivery (NOT for sale). Never say never I guess. I am Butch/56sedandelivery.

    Loudbang - Great batch!
    Note the F.I. setup sitting on the ground. Today it's worth twice what the car cost new.

    The 58 Pontiac was running the tri-power and the 57 Olds was running the J2 (their version). What a great pairing to see.

    The J2 Oldsmobile option had 3x2 barrel carburetors for 1957 and 1958. It was factory rated at 312 horsepower.
