Heard this was found in Ohio.....anyone know anything??
I haven't, looks like the "Monster Mash" although there is not much to go on.
OK Mike enough with the teasing, tell us the story.
A friend saw it on facebook. That's all I know.
Sure could be a Monster car. It's the right body, even some of the other stuff shown, looks right.
Anyone know the original factory colors of any of the Monster ...cars ?
The later "Monster" versions (maybe all) had the body moved back on the frame, so if you actually had access to the car could check that too.
If memory serves me right, thats a big if, the two colors I recall were pale Yellow and later or before White.
As did i see it. trying to join the group it was linked to i will try and get a link if i get in
I would like to know more about this one
The car shown in pix would be the first version of the Monster Mash since it's a 210 with side trim. ......the Monster II car was a 150 (no side trim...lighter car than a 210. The Jenkins sticker size and shape, and it's location on QP is consistent with the first Monster 55. Chevy.
If my memory serves correctly, that car was sold off when the II version was built.
What does this have to do with NHRA Junior Stock?
I was waiting for that.
What Mark said.No wonder Colesy left this site.
Yepper ! I agree

^^^^You did't always have to have the power needed to be a winner.^^^^ I remember, at Bremerton Raceway, just in the Bracket Racers, was a guy with a STOCK PINTO AUTOMATIC!!! More often than not, he won Street Class, and King of the Hill. Have't seen that car in quite a few years and the last time I saw the driver, he was in a 454, Automatic, 70-72 Chevelle SS. Been a while. There's STILL nothing better than the old Junior Stock Class!!! I am Butch/56sedandelivery.
Your last sentence on your post says it all ! Jr. stock was affordable for the average guy.

Thanks Kicken I would like them but don't deal on CL or FB or EB. I really prefer using the good old traditional hot rod site.
I worked with Bill Frusco about 4 yrs ago. He was still turning wrenches in a Chevy dealership until he retired. He was telling us how he raced an old chevy wagon back in the late 60's. It was quit the surprise when I googled the car and this pic showed up. Bill is doing well, and got into real estate as a part time job.
There are more I posted a couple times back in this thread
