    Norm Day sponsored the car at this point in its long drag racing life but it was owned and driven by Ted Harbit. The car was totaled at Muncie Dragway in May of 2009. Ted was 74 at the time and had owned and raced the car for 47 years.

    I wish there was an “unlike” button,Roo.....I remember seeing that car get some magazine coverage from time to time,then seeing the article,complete with gory photos of the wreckage....For someone who never saw the car up close,or met the man,it stung a little to see that old Stude all wadded up like a ball of paper.
    Glad he was ok,but what a shame to lose that car.

    I actually got to work on the car in the late 90's when I was working at Bill Carter's Automotion shop on Indy's south side.

  9. That Vette would not be an NHRA stocker with a lift off hood.

    Ted Harbit is now racing a red 63 Studebaker Lark, with a R-2 engine. He's raced it at the last couple of Melt Down Drags.

    I still kinda like my Jack Jones trophies though as I am old enough to remember that they weren't always "Wallys"

    Roo, don't get me wrong, I value them all, no matter what the date but I smile at the way my grandkids go "Ooooh, Grandpa!" when they look at the dates on those older cups! The tallest trophy in my collection was picked up for an AHRA class win in '65. That one was truly remarkable. It sits on the floor because there's not enough vertical clearance to put it on the mantle.

    There's something about tall trophies versus short trophies. Weight is impressive but the weight difference can't be measured until you heft one of the Wallys.

    Does anyone know what engine and trans combo were in the ‘57 sedan delivery’s of Wayne Walker/Mr Zip and the Trenton Speed Shop?

    If we knew the year that the picture was taken, it would be easier to extrapolate a combination because there were some fairly dramatic realignments of classes during the mid-60's. Possibly Gary Glover or the Kentuckian could help with your question. Sedan delivery bodies gradually fell out of favor after the reinterpretation of the rules during the late '60s.

    Inasmuch as the peak popularity of the sedan delivery cars occurred before the rules realignment in 1969, it probably had a hydramatic transmission but the engine combination could have potentially included anything from a 283 horsepower, solid-lifter, FI motor to a simple one-four-barrel Power Pack. My guess is that it was one of the more powerful combinations to run in J/SA.

    I think that would have been "Delorenzo." Joe was one of the "good guys" from Division One.
