"Old Red" ...... a 1960 Chevrolet Impala hardtop ........... legal NHRA C/S .............. 348 ci / 335 hp ......... Borg Warner T-10 4-speed .......... 4.56:1 rear gear ........... would turn the low 13's at just over 100 mph at Amarillo's 3,700 foot altitude













..... and the real thing .......... "yellowed" picture makes it look almost orange, but he was Roman Red

Very nice , and amazing that something that big was running 13 seconds.

It's as fast as a modern BMW M3! Well, in a straight line anyway LOL

So cool! The '50s-'60s "stock" racing classes totally ignored by modelers! So sweet to see one here!
