Any attic mice running around with the 66′ Biscayne wagon. The ‘Bad Banana IV’
A 427/390HP engine, the car ran in SS/J in 70′ (?). Owned by Ted Hartman, from
upstate-western New York,,town of Salamanca. Had the staggered front-end and few other tricks. There is a photo of his car at Dover, spectator-side..coming off the line..
Now I have to go search the site…
