    Amazing how much those taillight lenses change the look of the rearend. Gotta have a clear pic of that grille! Beautiful car. Unbelievable it's all original.

    A great find. Hope to see it at some events in the future. Glad to see that some of the old drag cars are saved as they ran. Looks great from every angle.

    Such a very well preserved time capsule. I would venture to say some heavy $$ offer's will come your way over time. Here's to keeping as is. The high will last a long time no doubt.

    I spoke to Dan a few years back during the Niagara Reunion at Lancaster Speedway. It's the first time I remember seeing the car which is weird because back in '66-'67 my brother and I ran a G/Stock '58 Delray Tudor sedan at Niagara and Lancaster. Of all the cars running you'd think I'd remember another. '58. Glad to see you're keeping a piece of local WNY drag history alive. Wonder whatever happened to our old '58?

    Really a rare find there. A preserved race car in the 1st place, and a '58 to boot!
    Biscayne and Positraction on the glove box, what's the third emblem?
