    I bet the line at the Coke shack got real short real fast when the announcer said "here's the 554 coupe getting ready to rock".

    I've never seen an A/FA (non supercharged on nitro) designated car before. Was there ever such a class or is that fictionalized?

    There was such a class. I ran in that class back in the 60’s.

    Well, while it possible that someone may have in their home track...
    There was no NHRA, AHRA class for that combination.

    I know a guy that ran two nitro powered V-6 Buick engines years back. Two, 250 inch V-6's equaled one 500 inch engine which is what the NHRA mandates for Top Fuel.
    They could never keep the engines connected, kept breaking couplers.

    Hello,

    Here are a couple of drawings and some actual facts found in my research of old Altered Coupes and Sedans. There were a few multiple engine Altereds and this was one of the most popular during our time at the drags and in car shows, but it was located in the S.F. Bay Area.

    The drawings and info were posted in the Friday Art Show back in August, 2020. We had never seen it in person, despite the fact that they were sponsored by Clay Smith Cams from Long Beach, CA near our old house.

    If anyone has a Bay Area color photo, I would be happy to change what I thought and a digital imaging company thought was the actual color from a B/W photo. In all of the stacks of old car magazines, there must be a color photo of the multiple engine sedan.

    So, does anyone have a June 1961 Hot Rod Mag or October 1961 Car Craft Magazine for comparisons?

    Hello,

    Ray Callejo had/has a well rounded background in hot rods and drag racing. He was at the Fremont Dragstrip with his 1931 Model A Sedan and a 283 C.I. SBC that ran in the B/Altered class. This was the ALTERED Coupe and Sedan Class many years before they dropped the designation and included Altered Roadsters.

    Then with his connections to the custom/hot rod world, he created a 584 C.I. SBC powered (283 x 2+ 566 c.i.) So, he bored the 283’s up to 292 c.i. each and put them inline inside of the Model A sedan. There is no record in any publication that can show the car at the drags, but it did manage to get to several Northern California hot rod shows with the twin inline SBC powering the modified Model A Sedan.

    The research shows that the copyright for all show photos belongs to a person that has not made them public.

    The old designation of BA-7 is no longer correct and should have read A/A-7. (with 584 c.i.)

    The Model A Sedan with the twin 292 SBC motors was featured in Car Craft and Hot Rod Magazines back in the early 1960s.

    There was a pic of a car with the A/FA designation posted around Mar 6. It appeared to be in a show car environment so I was unsure if there was such a class (I've never run nitro.) I guess it was taken down. My apologies to the original poster if my question was the reason it got deleted.

    That poster was me and the photo is from 2010 in Rosemont, Illinois. I'm guessing
    a mod didn't care
    for the wheels on it as most everything else seems legal. My
    question was just me being a wisea$$ and had nothing to do with your question/comment.
