This picture was taken in the spring of 1965, after just completing a major rebuild in a quest for more perfection in NHRA Stock Class racing. Boy the rules were tough back then. It has fresh paint, a fresh motor, and check out the headers. They are a Jerry Stahl type where each primary pipe was 60" long, giving it a very unusual sound. This type of header killed the bottom end performance, but helped on the top end which was perfect for the only 7 inch wide slick which were allowed at the time. The car eventually ran a best of 13.93 at an altitude of 5,300 feet, which at sea level equates to a 13.32. The National Record was 13.20 at this time.
