My all time favorite car mr Norma 65 dodge. Same car with two paint jobs.
Compare the two paint jobs and the lettering. The red and silver was new for 66. They also had romeo pallamedies build a 66 charger also painted red and silver. Both were raced in 66.
Norm was always upset he didn't get one of the original awb cars even though he sold the most high performance cars in the country. Dodge told norm if they gave him one all the other dealers would complain. To smooth things over he got lindamoods car when it was taken away for pulling wheelies after the factory told him not to. Norm also purchased the California flash. It was destroyed in a street race in chicago.
You gotta love the hand position everyone is taking in that last picture
Here is the Charger that Brian mentioned in post #723
may be this one?
Jerry was from upstate New York (Niagra Falls) and billed this as the world's fastest 289 Ford. The blown small block ran on alcohol and was backed by a four speed trans as well as also running direct drive on fuel later in its life. In 1967 the car was sold to Frontier Ford's service manager's brother (Bob Lamarca of Rochester NY) who later sold it to Terry Moon (1973). As of 2011 Moon still owned the car. Thanks to Dennis Doubleday (the king of early funny car history) for the back story.
Does anyone have the history on the Wildcatter Plymouth? I believe the W Va Hemi team car belonged to Eddie Smith, and I see it was sponsored by Tag Galyean, a Charleston WV auto dealer.
