What a great pic!
Regals BB.GD by Vern Scholz
The reason I post race car pics here instead of the drag cars in motion thread is because I want people to SEE them.
This thread has, BY FAR, the biggest viewership. History is important (in my view).
I thought that's who that was. Larry's father was a race driver who was killed in a track roadster at Kokomo, Indiana. His brother Ron Burton became a well known racing artist who at one time was under contract to Miller Brewing to do exclusive paintings of their sponsored Indy, stock, and drag cars. Ron also worked as a crew member for many drivers including A.J. Foyt.
Can ANYONE here who is a Glazer maybe tell me how many Ford F-100 PU's were built with the Optional "Big window 1961-1964 ???
Wows indyrjc, interesting information. Seems like talent ran in the Burton family.
Here's all my aunts and uncles, and your too if you grew up in the 50's-60's!
One of my aunts had a THAT GREEN 53 Chevy. Do you remember the color? Seemed like all Chevies were that color.
The day my Dad's 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 XL was delivered.
WOW! How COOL is that???
Cisco Grove, still there located on Old Hwy 40 (now Interstate 80), between Auburn and Truckee...
Everyone's Grandma. Lived on a farm, survived war, depressions, poverty, had little education, worked like a SLAVE cooking, washing , raising kids. Tough as nails.
A great looking roadster pick-up, Gary, but given that the owner drives it on the street, I think I would have gone for front wheel brakes, what do you think?
Yes. I'd run brakes today, but probably not in 1964.
I'll bet that old Cadillac towing that huge U-Haul has a clamp on bumper hitch they rented from U-Haul to tow that trailer.
Clamp on bumper hitches were real common as well as clamp on tow bars.
Not many family cars could tow a trailer like that today
NOW you did it.....gloves coming off...........!
WOW! Just wow! Cars like this just define HOT ROD in the 60's for me, the drag cars were the top of the heap!
Don't have clue as the numbers, but 63 was the last year of the big window option, 64 cabs were much different.
I wasn't aware of a big window option in anything other than the 61-63 unibodies. The 61-66 cabs of the other styles remained mostly unchanged through the years. The beds were really only thing that significantly changed in 64.
