This car has a lot of history. It has been a Texas drag car all of its life. Even still wears the original 1972 Texas Inspection sticker.
The car was completely gone through in 2006. New Chrome Moly cage and floor (inside and under) stripped and repainted with POR 15. New alloy axles, race gears & bearings, Autometer gauges, 4-wheel disc brakes, Caltracs and paint. My son race it until the end of 2009, and then he moved up to the NSS Class, in a 65 Coronet for 2010. The car was cleaned and put into a bubble until last month.
The car has won many National Events in NMC since. The car has been in many magazines.
This Demon is now available for sale as a roller. Put a Mopar small block and transmission in it, and it’s NMC legal. The car is all metal and glass except for the fiberglass hood.
Put a modern Hemi in it, and run in NHRA’s new Sportsman class that runs old school cars with new school drive trains. Or easily bring back to Stock, Pro Street or Pro Touring.

What you see is what you get. It would cost you twice as much to find a Texas Demon near as nice, install the CM cage, alloy axles, 4-wheel disc brakes, gauges, rebuild the front end and 8.75 rear end, get the wheels a tires and then do the paint and body. This car might have less than 500 miles on it -but all at 1/4 mile at a time.
Below are some of the photos rebuilding this car, for your enjoyment.
And a few racing photos.
