Factory Hot Rods Wheels Up Action
With the slogan or often heard radio ad Sunday, Sunday, Sunday. Introducing the big feature match race for the number one spot in the nation. This was usually a match race between well known local racers and an out of town big name guy.
The event was designed to draw in the crowds, as they often did. Jam packed. With a big cash prize for a winner take all best of 3. Thursday nights were often a big night for heads up or match racing too.
Then many racers would race on a Friday night, and then drive 100’s and sometimes 1000’s of miles, to a factory sponsered event held on the Saturday. Same again on Sunday, then home again late Sunday night or early Monday morning.
This was how many racers made an income. Click on the image for more information and free shipping options, or visit the store front at this link https://www.quarter-mile-addiction.com/stores/quartermileaddiction
50 Years of Chrysler’s R0/W0 Factory Hemi Cars
They were a little heavier than the factory race cars from previous years. Probably due to the streetable nature of the cars, as they could be registered and driven legally on the street. The cars were largely underrated by racers in the early years due to the extra weight they seemed to have.
Many say that there were more Dodge Coronet and Plymouth Belvedere factory street hemi cars sold in 1967, than any other model year of the 426 hemi production. Perhaps the cars were far more popular with the general public.
After all there was such a massive demand for a street legal hemi car since the hemi engines inception in late 1963/64. Designed purely to win the 19464 NASCAR Daytona 500. And win it did!
1968 Hemi Super Stock SS/AA
Our next hemi t shirt for sale is none other than a pair of 1968 SS/AA cars. An L023 Hemi Dart and a B029 Hemi Barracuda. These cars were built to win IHRA and NHRA super stock drag racing events.
They were by no means street legal although the odd one or two have been known to slip throughthe cracks and somehow were registered to drive on the street. Around 70 of each are thought to have been built.
Many of these cars were acid dipped, an old air craft trick to lighten or thin out the metal/body panels. Fitted with special light weight glass, stripped of any factory sound deadening material, interior trim, window mechanisms etc.
They had fibre glass fenders and hood and anything else that could be lightened was done. These cars dominated their class, to the point where they now run in a class of their own, where some factory survivor and purpose built clones compete with each other to this day.
Run Watcha Brung & Hope You Brought Enough
The first NHRA event held in 1965 was known as the Woodstock of drag racing. This was at a time where the crowd would actually stand around the two race cars at the starting line. Then they would literally part to let the cars pass!
Some would stand so close behind the cars, they could actually see the dash controls of the car in action! Talk about close calls. This was the start of many crowd packed events from the mid 60’s until the late 70s.
Here we have a pair of 1965 Dodge and Plymouth hemi cars, complete with fuel injection stacks. The saying run watcha brung meant that when you showed up to race for the day or evening, you had best be sure to bring all that you got.
Meaning your setup had to be the best of the best. It was truly an all or nothing be all and end all racing event. There were practically no rules. You ran what ever fuel you could get your hands on. The tune up was often set on kill for most.
Both suspension and engine tune wise. Be prepared to break some parts.
