    Looks like it is a frame cover that ends right behind the firewall, and that is quite the dress up item!

    Here’s How Indy Cars Were Built In 1960, As Demonstrated By Bruce Crower For HRM’s Cover.

    The Laid Over, 254 Inch Chevy In The Helse Special Was One Of Two Stock Blocks That Earned Headlines For Challenging The Offys And Threatening To Put Detroit Back Into The 500 For The First Time In Several Decades.

    Here’s Where The Money Went From The Sale Of Don Prudhomme’s Street Roadster. Notice That Nobody In Riverside’s Pits Is Noticing The Car Painter Who Assumed Ivo’s First Fuller Car On What TV Tom Calls “the No Money Down, Easy Payment Plan.” By The End Of The Season, This Gas Burning Buick Was
    Winning Trophies.

    Hello,

    When we saw this silver rear engine race car at Lions, we knew where it came from, in northern Bixby Knolls. The race car was built at Stu's Transmissions in NE Long Beach, just past central Bixby Knolls. That place was a gathering of almost anyone with transmission problems or set ups. The mechanics there were very good and popular with the drag racers and street cruisers/racers. Out of all the different transmissions in our high school group’s sedans, at one time or another, they were all in Stu’s Transmission parking lot and shop. Stick shift transmissions, automatics, old and new, were all serviced at Stu’s.

    In this NE Long Beach locale, there were plenty of outstanding shops that catered to the drag racers and home builders. From Stu's Transmissions, to Henry's Machine Works for axles/frame mods, etc. A great tire store and alignment place, as well as several muffler shops for the custom pipes and exhausts, were all within a block or two along Cherry Avenue. (just North of the famous Cherry Avenue Drags location) We all knew the location and directions on Cherry Ave, South meant the drags location, North meant the hot rod shops.

    We were fortunate to be able to drive a short distance to give our business to those shops and mechanics. It was a hot spot just north of Bixby Knolls. Jocko's Porting Service was also nearby.

    This unusual race car was a fan favorite, just because it was unusual and rather odd. The noise it made was not like a 671 supercharged SBC motor, but an ordinary SBC with straight pipes that made a different sound.

    For some reason,those 8 pipes made kind of a bee buzzer noise and not the heavy throated rumble of a supercharged SBC motor. The engineering was there, it ran well in its class, was a fan favorite, but dropped out of the scene rapidly. Luckily, we were there in 1959-60 to record some of the only runs made by this little dragster.

    NOTE:

    Hello,
    The rear drive SBC silver dragster was unique. It was very low and unusual. It made several runs and sounded like an SBC with straight pipes. These early times had different creations of race cars. As the saying goes, "Variety is The Spice of Life..." and variety is what we got in 1960. Everyone was impressed with the build. But, after looking at the original Sidewinder, nothing compares to that original, fast, rear engine dragster from Joe Mailliard. But, since you liked the SBC one, here is a compilation film of it at Lions

    Thanks,
    Jnaki
