    For the longest time I heard of a yellow 59 Chevy with a Jenkins motor in the area and my friends from different pasts would talk about them. What are the chances there would be 2 of them, here finally on the same page. Mystery solved. Georges car is no longer.

    I don't know for sure that it has been "recycled" ... the person that it was "last" sold to had it in and behind his garage for years... I have my "detective" attempting to find out. Those things take time but there is a good chance it is NO more... If I find out for sure I will update. Part of its undoing, undoubtedly. is the sandblasting and scraping that removed everything that would insure it would not rust to death.

    I remember watching the Good Old Charlie Brown 57 wagon race!!! Kind of a "plain-Jane" looking wagon but Boy would it run! Been a while back fer sure.
    I'm so old I remember watching Gene Cromer race his 427 side-oiler powered 41 Willys the first time around! (He now runs the same car in the Southern Gassers Group.) In fact the old Starlite Dragstrip Restaurant use to have a picture of his Willy on the back bumper (when they still had flagman starters) Wheelie bars where caster wheels welded to the bottom of the rear bumper and the Willies was on them!

    For those who are too young to remember and for those of us who do remember, here is an ad photo showing a new Atlas Bucron tire. They did not last long as a passenger tire but they did hook at the dragstrip.

    Sounds like the " street tires " an autocrosser friend of mine ran. They made pencil erasers look like they would durometer about 100 by comparison and were only good for only four or five thousand miles if he actually ran them on the street.

    I like your tag line. From Lewis Grizzard I believe.

    Seems to be a lot of '55-'57 Chevy guy's here. A guy I know has a rough but some what complete '56 sedan delivery he is going to sell. At least I think it is. In talking to another buddy today, he is convinced it started life as a handy man's wagon. I might have a chance to look at this thing Friday. What are some things to look for? Thanks, Gene.

    Hello........................................................................................................................................................................................................
    Seriously, what I would first do is look at the VIN tag on the drivers side A-pillar. IF it's a true Sedan Delivery, the tag will have "D" in the VIN, an "A" would be a Model 150 Handyman Wagon, a "B " would be a Model 210 Handyman Wagon, and a "C" would make it a Nomad (since that's the only Bel Air 2 Wagon made). NO VIN? A Sedan Delivery will have a single, lift up, rear hatch; a Handyman Wagon will have a 2 piece rear-clam shell door, that half lifts up, and half drops down. A Sedan Delivery will have a "smugglers box" behind the seat (s); Sedan Deliveries were baselined with a single, drivers side adjustable,"bucket" seat, the passenger side, "bucket" seat was an option and was't adjustable, it only tilted forward. A bench seat was an option in a Sedan Delivery. A Handyman Wagon would only come with a bench seat. Sedan Deliveries had no rear seat (only the smugglers box), a Wagon had a rear seat. There were Windowed Sedan Deliveries, that were basically the same as the more usual Sedan Delivery that had metal panels on the sides. True Sedan Deliveries only had Model 150 side trim, but without a paint divider, and had the Model 150 interiors and interior paint. There are many minor differences to tell when a Wagon is made into a Delivery or vise versa, but my head's starting to hurt. I am Butch/56sedandelivery.

    Mr.56...thanks for the info. Did not know S.D.'s had a one piece rear door ( hatch). Seems that would be a dead give-a-way. Will report back. Gene.

    I'm not sure which sanctioning body it was but they were in a section called "factory Stock" and it had the same rules like NHRA pure stock. Only photos I have seen with those markings.

    Wonder what happened with this one. It was on another site for sale a few years ago.
    It was in pretty bad shape but still untouched body wise.

    At PID they had a class called "Experimental Stock", and those are cars running it. I'm not exactly sure what all the rules were but they were basically street machines for the most part with minor mods.

    A set of Atlas Bucrons would last a weekend on my 327/340 57 Corvette but the good news is they only cost $10 each. Casler recaps were a good upgrade when they came out

    Lyn, could that have been a Valiant version of the 275 horsepower, stick-only, "D/Dart" combination that included a Holley, solid lifters, .500+" lift, Offenhauser 360° intake? If so, that's not in the Class Guide for Valiant but then, lots of unusual things were happening in that era between NHRA, AHRA, and IHRA.
