'67 Chevy Pickup with 392 Chrysler Hemi
Jim has owned this truck for 38 years. The frame-up rebuild was done in
2006, and at that time he installed the1958, 392 Chrysler Hemi, that he
rebuilt (he used to build supercharged engines for street rods)......The
wheelbase was shortened to 100 inches in 1974......This truck has a lot of
history.....it towed and push-started his Top Fuel dragster (TF242) for 7
years covering over 400,000 miles. He took it for a ride on the local
drag strip last week....I included a short clip of it at the end of the
Front Engine Dragster built in five months
In December 2009 I got the idea that it would be fun to have a FED so I
asked a few questions and read a few threads on the HAMB. After wieghing
all the advice and suggestions I bought a set of Mark Williams blue prints
and got started. With the help of a good friend or two I had a can the was
ready to race at Eagle Field in May 2010.
