    Well, Tom, the ‘Arrow was a 1965 Plymouth; it’s first race was the Winternationals in February of ’65. the wheelbase wasn’t altered until 1966. So the picture has to be from ’66 or ’67, but by ’67, the Arrow had different paint and lettering. By 1968, Bill owned it and it was the Storm King 2.
    I was thinkin’ I may need to do the Dover signage on my Dart, Dino.

    storm king…. Called Bill to check date of the picture. The picture of the ’37 Ford had to be taken in the fall of 1965. I went to my shop to check the bottom base of the trophies during that time. Use to write the date, ET and MPH of all the trophies. I was wrong about the 1964 but 1965 must be the time the picture was taken. The ’37 was disassembled at the end of the 1965 racing season. Started the 1966 season with the A/MSP and that car had the same engine and trans from the ’37. The first trophy in A/MSP was dated 3/27/66.
    Does that fit with the information you have?
