"Lots of work..." indeed!! The Hedworth car in the attached picture was also a conversion
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.
5th car in line is Ron Garey.. Only one I've got.

And a beautiful "Wagon" it is!!! I'd love to have a 56 150 Handyman; friend's got one, but he won't sell. I like them plain Jane. I am Butch/56sedandelivery.

Before they were known as Junior Stockers, there were lots of stock cars running on the dragstrips around the country.
I will take 2
Far lane Al Falco
New 1958 Chrysler 300 hemi vs new 1958 Pontiac tri-power
How about a 52 Hudson vs a 51 Oldsmobile
54 Oldsmobile vs 52 Oldsmobile with a flag start
Long time Ford racer Lloyd Bray with his new '57 Ford in A/S. RIP Lloyd.
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.
Ed Wright still races, now in a Super Stock Firebird. I believe he won an LODRS event this past summer.
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.
Good eye never even noticed it.

Loudbang just may have a thing for '57 Chevys.
