1963 Chevrolet Biscayne 409 "Jungle Fever" idling

This beast belongs to a friend of mine and the mighty 409 just came back to life again (no mufflers yet)...way too loud for my camera! There's still some work to finish but everyone is looking forward to see this car on the street (and on the track?) again... It's believed to be a former NHRA B/Stock drag car, writing on fenders says "Jungle Fever". It was always a race car since 60s and was featured in "Super Chevy" Magazine in the early 90s. It spend some time in the UK as well and finally came to Germany last year. We're still trying to find out more about its history...maybe YOU can help us?
