This Altered Coupe was the first try at racing in the Altered Coupe/Sedan Class for a group of young guys from Northern California. Starting in 1958 through the 1959 season.
The history goes back to 1958-59 to the Kingdon Dragstrip March Meet, 63 years ago. Brothers, Pete and Harry Burkholder, along with friend, Joe Radan made up the P B J Racing Team. (B was Harry’s nickname: Burk)
This radical 1934 Ford Coupe was before the advent of the Altered Coupes/Sedans Class popularity of the early to mid-60s. It was a show car dressed up and powered for the drags.

Follow the history of the Burkholder Brothers in So Cal drag racing circles over the years, up to today. It is amazing that they are still involved in one way or another. Yea…Harry!

August 1969 cover car from Aussie Custom Rodder.
'27 T roadster originally owned & built by Dean Batchelor. The car wound up being owned by Don Prudhomme, who gave the car 24 coats of Forest Green lacquer before he sold it, without even driving it - to support his new dragster habit. Phil Cartozian was the owner when this photo was taken at the 1st LA Roadster Show in 1960. At that time, the roadster featured a heavily chromed, fuel injected, 392-inch 1956 Buick engine that Tommy Ivo had built.
