Dino I have tried everything you have mentioned above. I know all the owners of my car back to 1978 time frame. My car wasn’t a drag car that I know of. (It wasn’t all lettered up,no cage or tubed). So maybe it was street raced or even stretched its legs a couple of times at Dover. Possibly sold new from Mid Hudson chevrolet? It was last in Pleasent Vally NY around the 1977-78 time frame? I would be willing to pay someone if they wanted to dig up some more information on my car if they are from that area? MY car is a 1968 Nova SS 396 375hp 4 speed car, green exterior with gold bucket seat interior and a black vinyl top. Very rare interior and exterior color combination. This is what it looks like after the restoration I did. Any info feel free to call my cell 518-301-1486.
i still have my black 1962 corvette that ran at dover from 1966 to 1969. will send to you & Brian.

Send the car ? 😆
i just ran into the guy i sold my 67 SS 396 chevelle to. haven’t seen him in 25 years.he was at LVD on 7/9 and saw “our” old car. it has some features that he saw PLUS, HE said a DOVER win sticker! the owner wasn’t there when he looked at it.i sold it to him 30 years ago. i put it together in 1972,so its been “raced” for close to 40 years. i also heard it was raced on the street.i hope to see it at the track, maybe soon.
I wish I could find one of my 66 Chevelle’s. The last I new, it was in Reading, Connecticut. Guy by the name of Dave Johnson had the car. My first good /MP car. Last I heard, he was still racing it sometimes, but that was several years ago. I have since lost track of him, and the car. …………….Mikey 🙁 😆
I’m with you Mikey,wish I knew where my Willys went to after it was sold in late ’64’ to a guy in Pa.I was taking advanced infantry training at that time,and me and my partner,sadly,had to part company with it.It probably wound up in a ‘bone’ yard,or perhaps survived,and maybe a ‘neat’ street rod.Boy,S/S Pete is ‘very’ lucky to find his old ‘hot rod’! Wish I had some of that luck finding our old Willys.
Anybody recognize this car? Its on HAMB under New England Dragway in Epping. Got photos? Someone said “The Anglia bodied dragster… Is the A&B Speed Shop B/C. These picture look to be from Sanford 1963. In 1964 they built their Loghee chassis A/FD, that put many AA/FD on the trailer. They won thier class in 65 at the Nationals.”
I know where a body just like this one is. Could it be 😮 😮 😮
I’m 87-3/4% sure I know where this body is 😮 😮 😮 Maybe brother Mike can be talked into putting the body on his dragster 😎 😎 😎 . I’ll go looking Monday and will report back.
As a ‘gasser’ nut,I hated to see that Anglia body ‘mutilated’.But I’m the one who’s being selfish.Different ‘strokes’ for different ‘folks’,like they say! Yes Pat,could be a ‘diamond’ in the ‘rough’ I guess!
Real close …but not the same as original…Wheel well cut too low …original went through that body line and is close to window.Most ofthe hard work done -Chopped and ready for media blast .
Dino, that could be the car!! If you look close, especially in the last picture, the car does have 2 wheel well openings, and the one in front goes to, and through the body line. Look at it again, tell me what you think. …………..Mikey 😆
Bottom picture looks right.
Top picture………..butchered body. 😥 Damn shame. 😮
