Just Talked to Frank....Cantankerous STILL parked in the garage....He's "entertaining" some serious 'bidders' but no sale yet.This has been going on for over a year.Remember ...this WAS the Jenkins -Strickler Car and one of only 50 made............From His "about Us" at his web-site:
'This race car, which he still owns today, is an Ex- Strickler - Jenkins Dodge factory aluminum hemi racecar and one of fifty originally built in 1964. Not only has Frank's Dodge won class at numerous NHRA Events, but also the car served as a test bed for many industry breakthroughs. '

When I started using Frank for my trans and convertor needs I stopped breakage by almost 100%.............. :D ..Frank is a great guy and one of the most knowledgable racing transmission people out there...He was my sponsor for a few years with my S/G car in the 80's ...Check out Dec. 2009 post by Dino, a pic of the S/G car with large Fairbanks decals...Highly recommended..............Don.......

We sold and stocked Fairbanks Trans parts (retail and WD) for MANY YEARS, and I can say we sold as much if not more as B&M without any problems. GOOD to hear it stayed in the family and still Building!

Frank reports he just found an original , mint condition 64 race Hemi for the car...Still in his Garage-unlettered- and when he finds the time,plans to get it race ready. Said only about 200 of those motors ever built,and was real lucky to find one at a great price and in such good condition.
